Hello, I have a new Trion Electronic Air Cleaner which mounts horizontally to the blower duct.
When looking at how the old unit was installed, it seems to have these long cleats at the flanges of the opening of the blower duct, gripping the blower duct and the air cleaner housing together. Is the the normal way of fastening two units face to face? Where can you get those long sheet metal gripper cleats they have on the flanges?
You are exactly correct. I looked up "s cleats". Example: https://www.hardwareworld.com/60in-3...t-pRNHD1Z.aspx I guess I will need to get those online, I've not found them in a local hardware store. Maybe I can reuse the old ones, but in addition to the s-cleats, I have to drill out rivets to remove the old unit. They have riveted through both flanges and the s-cleats! Thanks for the help! I would never have guessed s-cleats.
