Light baffle

Ok was after a new veg tent but turns out iv got a cupboard of pretty much exact dimensions I want and it has external venting..

Problem being the vent on the outside of the property will be very much visible with the purple light.

My plan is to just box over the vent and stick a little 4" can fan in there with ducting coming out into the room.

Will that be enough or will I need to make some sort of baffle? Thanks in advance

Cover it over with cooker hood filter material, you might have to double it up to kill all the light...Robert Dyas stocks it, about ten quid...:yep:

Iv got a few big sheets of that green stuff you get on the back of cheapo dish sponges do you Think that would stop the light? Il still box it up aswell

Not sure about the green stuff, the one I use (as above) has two sheets, one black one white and I use both, cuts the light out completely without affecting air flow too much.
