Air King introduced its line of Professional Outdoor Series range hoods for ventilating smoke and odors that can accumulate in covered outdoor kitchens, which have gained in popularity. Outdoor kitchen ventilation can be accomplished by using the outdoor range hoods that are ETL listed for damp locations. These range hoods can be customized to the ventilation needs of the grill with HVI-certified performance options up to 1,200 CFM. Air King offers widths of 36″, 42″ and 48″ to cover typical residential outdoor kitchen needs. For a finished look, matching soffits and backsplashes are also available.
With homeowners adding outdoor living spaces and specifically outdoor kitchens, the Air King range hoods will keep the area free of smoke and odours. The Professional Outdoor Series range hoods are constructed of 304 stainless steel that will not discolor over time. The included dishwasher-safe baffles capture grease and debris and are easy to remove and clean. To illuminate the cooking surface, up to 3 dimmable 45-watt maximum halogen lights are included. An internal thermostat detects when the heat level rises to an excessive amount and will automatically start the hood. Metal control knobs that can withstand the higher temperatures of outdoor cooking are located on the control panel at the front of the hood. Air King.
