How do I know what type of hood filter to purchase?

Choosing the right type of hood filter depends on a few things..

  1. Can your customers see your kitchen and hood system? If so, you’ll want a filter that is visually appealing such as stainless steel or aluminum.
  2. What type of food are you cooking? If you are cooking with solid fuel such as mesquite, hardwood, or charcoal – you will need a spark arrestor filter.
  3. How much are you cooking? If you have a high volume operation, you’ll want a more durable and corrosion resistant filter such as Heavy Duty Stainless Steel or Galvanized.

These are some basic guidelines to consider. To learn more about each type of filter, view the “How to Choose the Right Type of Hood Filter” video.
