Evening guys .
Just wondering i have to install a fan in a bathroom there has already been a hole cored out for a 4 inch fan.
This is 2.70m from the plug hole to the bottom of the cored hole but they are installing a shower which the shower head will be closer to the fan not sure on dimensions.

So will this be acceptable to put fan in?
Or is it a case of Moving the hole?

thanks guys.:)

Looking at page 169 of the BRB, it seems the fan will be outside zones.

However, i wouldnt feel comfortable installing a 230V fan directly above a bath.

Is there any way you could install an inline or LV fan if there is access above?

Any of the LV's available from the wholesalers.

Problem is, the transformer is remote so that will need to be mounted somewhere accessible.

I am sure, however, that there are 230V splash proof ones that might do the job.

Trouble is, i cant remember where i have seen them.

Try a quick google.
