Hi everyone,

what are the parts of an air ventilation system called?

Specifically, I'm looking for two things:

  1. The "tubing" that the air goes through (and you can climb into)
  2. The part that connects to the room, where air flows out (and you can take off to climb into the system)
It doesn't have to be technical, it's for a short story that I'm writing. Children climb into "1" through "2".

What I had in mind was "shaft" for the first one, and "grate" for the second one.

Can you suggest some better words for these?

Thank you,

Ati2

    Welcome to the forum, Ati2.

    "Shaft" seems fine for the first. I think the second is called a "vent". The grate is the frame/structure covering the vent.

    Thank you. :)

    For the second one I'm looking for the word that describes the thing that normally blocks you from getting in the shaft. That you can take down, and then climb in.
