I have got very restricted access across the floor of our loft due to a low headroom above the new shower position. Realistically, I will have to mount the fan about 1.2 meters away from the extract shower spigot (where there is more headroom) but then double back with the outlet flexible pipework (past the shower spigot again!) and out through the external wall beyond. So far so good but... There is very limited opportunity to floor mount the fan as there is a gas pipe (I don't want to move) bang in the way. So: Would it be OK to mount the fan on a small "aerial platform" hanging from the roof rafters? I thougth this would have the added advantage of giving a downward slope to the extract pipe to the outside and also might be less vibration/noise coming through the shower ceiling? It sounds all wrong, but I'm having a job coming up with a good objection - so thougth I would ask the experts. Thanks for any comments (sorry its a longish post).
