The ventilator shall provide flexibility in designing kitchen ventilation equipment and shall be tested and listed for use over 450°F light/medium duty cooking surfaces; 600°F heavy duty cooking surfaces; and up to 700°F extra heavy duty cooking surfaces.

The ventilator shall be 100% constructed of Type 304 stainless steel with #3 or #4 polish. All seams shall be welded or in conformance with ETL standards. All exposed corners shall be ground and polished to match the ventilator grain. Individual component construction shall be determined by manufacturer and ETL. Construction shall be dependent on the structural application to minimize distortion and other defects. All seams, joints and penetrations of the ventilator where grease-laden vapors and exhaust gases are present, must be liquid-tight, continuous welds in accordance with NFPA 96.

The ventilator shall be constructed to include:

  • A double wall insulated front to eliminate condensation and increase rigidity. The insulation shall have a flexural modulus of 475 EI, meet UL 181 requirements and be in accordance with NFPA 90A and 90B.
  • An integral front baffle to direct grease-laden vapors toward the exhaust filter bank.
  • An integral grease drain system on the ventilator back with a minimum 1/8" per foot slope, to include an exposed, removable 1/2 pint grease cup to facilitate cleaning.
  • A built-in wiring chase for electrical controls on the front face of the ventilator designed to avoid penetration of the capture area and eliminate the need for an external chaseway.
  • UL incandescent light fixtures and globes, allowing up to a 100 watt standard light bulb, installed and pre-wired to a junction box and installed with a maximum of 3'-6" spacing on center.
  • Exhaust duct collar 5" high with 1" flange.
  • A minimum of four connections for hanger rods. Connectors shall have 9/16" holes pre-punched in 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" angle iron at the factory to allow for hanger rod connection by others.
  • ETL Listed high velocity cartridge filters, with size and quantity determined by the ventilator's dimensional parameters, but extending the full length of the ventilator with filler panels not to exceed 6". The filter shall be designed to remove in excess of 95% of the cooking by-products generated from the cooking process.

The ventilator shall be ETL Listed as "Exhaust Hoods Without Exhaust Damper", ETL Listed to Canadian Safety Standards, ETL Sanitation Listed and built in accordance with NFPA 96.

Manufacturer shall furnish complete computer generated submittal drawings including ventilator section view(s), plan view(s), duct sizing, and CFM and static pressure requirements. Static pressure, air velocity and air volume requirements indicated on drawings shall be precise and accurate and ventilator shall preform to said specifications. Drawings shall be available to the engineer, architect and owner for their use in construction, operation and maintenance.
