A local restaurant bought out an existing restaurant here in town and was remodeling the interior and exterior of the building to suit their needs. Part of our task was to install two new commercial kitchen ventilation hoods.

Here at Jeans Restaurant Supply we have our own in-house design team. We also have our own sheet metal fabrication shop that not only fabricates all the ductwork involved in the venthoods but we also design and manufacture our own UL approved hoods.

Once the contractor was able to remove any lighting, ceiling tiles, wiring, etc, that were going to be in the way of the new hoods our installation crew was able to come in and hang the hoods, make the necessary roof penetrations, install, seal, and insulate all ducting and exhaust and fresh air fans.


Once the hoods are all installed and properly ducted to the roof and the roof flashings are installed and sealed the fans can be installed. Once we've completed hanging the hoods and installing all necessary ducting and fans the electrician and the ansul fire protection system installers come in and install the electrical and fire safety equipment to the hoods. We work closely with these crews in consulting and advising as to what our equipment requires, i.e., voltage, phase, amperage draws, contactors, etc.

An integral part of the venthood is making sure that the equipment under it is spaced so that it fits within the limits under the hood. We also work closely with the plumbers in making sure that the right pipe size and number of cutoffs are supplied to match the equipment that is going under the hood.

Many municipalities, including our own here have new code requirements whereby duct and room sensors have to be included. A duct sensor in the hood and a room sensor mounted in the kitchen area sense heat when equipment under the hood comes on and starts heating up and will automatically turn the hood on. After equipment is off and cools down enough the hood will automatically turn off. You can also override the system and turn the hood on and off manually on the touch membrane pad if so desired.

We also install stainless steel panels on the walls under and on top of the hoods and other places needed or requested.

Once the installation is complete and the hoods are up and running we do an air balance test to make sure we have the proper balance of air to the hoods and make any final adjustments if necessary.
