Kitchen Hoods

Creative Sheet Metals Beautiful and functional. Range hoods, or Hood vents are a great addition to any kitchen, and
will custom manufacture hood vents to your specifications.

Hood vents can be fabricated in many metals, gauges and finishes, including copper and stainless steel. We can also fabricate these items with thinner material if strength is not a big concern.


Creative Sheet Metal will always weld and finish corners unless otherwise specified. In thinner materials, we can also solder these items. If you're looking for a seamless look, welding is the way to go. We can also add rivets, bolts, bars, or anything else to give that extra detail to range hoods.Custom hood vents are beautiful additions to kitchens, bars and restaurants for either a modern or rustic look, depending on the material used and finish applied. Finishes will vary depending on the project. 

 

What is a Kitchen Hood

An exhaust hood, extractor hood, or range hood is a device containing a mechanical fan that hangs above the stove or cooktop in the kitchen. It removes airborne grease, combustion products, fumes, smoke, odors, heat, and steam from the air by evacuation of the air and filtration.[1] In commercial kitchens exhaust hoods are often used in combination with fire suppression devices so that fumes from a grease fire are properly vented and the fire is put out quickly. Commercial vent hoods may also be combined with a fresh air fan that draws in exterior air, circulating it with the cooking fumes, which is then drawn out by the hood.

In most exhaust hoods, a filtration system removes grease (the grease trap) and other particles. Although many vent hoods exhaust air to the outside, some recirculate the air to the kitchen. In a recirculating system, filters may be used to remove odors in addition to the grease.
