Wall Venting Non-Vented
Calculating Vent System Length
To calculate the length of the system you need, add the equivalent feet
(meters) for each vent piece used in the system.
Vent Piece 6" (15.2 cm) Round
45° elbow 2.5 ft (0.8 m)
90° elbow 5 ft (1.5 m)
Maximum equivalent vent length is 35 ft (10.7 m).
Example Vent System
The following example falls within the maximum recommended vent
length of 35 ft (10.7 m).
1 - 90° Elbow = 5 ft (1.5 m)
1 - Wall cap = 0 ft (0 m)
8 ft (2.4 m) straight = 8 ft (2.4 m)
Length of system = 13 ft (3.9 m)
90 elbow
6 ft (1.8 m)
2 ft
(0.6 m)

This canopy hood is factory set for venting through the roof or wall.
A 6" (15.2 cm) round vent system is needed for installation (not included).
The hood exhaust opening is 6" (15.2 cm) round.
NOTE: Flexible vent is not recommended. Flexible vent creates back
pressure and air turbulence that greatly reduce performance.
Vent system can terminate either through the roof or wall. To vent
through a wall, a 90° elbow is needed.
Rear Discharge
A 90° elbow may be installed immediately above the hood.
For Non-Vented (Recirculating) Installations
If it is not possible to vent cooking fumes and vapors to the outside,
the hood can be used in the non-vented (recirculating) version, fitting a
charcoal filter and the deflector. Fumes and vapors are recycled through
the top grille.
