Choosing the right hood for your kitchen

Performance is key – the effectiveness of a cooker hood is not just determined by the power of the motor, it is affected by duct size, duct length, duct bends and the area available for the fumes to collect prior to extraction.

Serious cooks with serious cookers need their hoods to perform. Westin can advise on the most effective solution for you.

Ceiling Hoods

Ceiling hoods are most effective when mounted in the highest point of the ceiling, providing extraction for the whole room and not just 
the local area of the hob.
