Restaurant Hood Systems

There are 2 different types of Vent Hoods and the question you need to ask is: Will you be exhausting grease-laden air or non-grease-laden air?

Type I-Grease Hoods

Type I kitchen hoods are used over cooking equipment producing grease-laden overflow and are available in a variety of different styles and configurations.

Type II- Heat and Condensate Hoods

Type II kitchen hoods are designed to capture heat and/or condensate from non-grease-producing appliances such as ovens and dishwashers.
