What are Hood Filter Spacers?

If standard size hood filters don’t perfectly fit the width of your hood system, you can still avoid the high cost of custom made filters by using filter spacers.

A hood filter spacer is a solid piece of curved metal that fills any open space left after installing your hood filters.

For example – let’s say your hood system is 80” wide. You would order 4 - 20” filters. However, since standard filters measure ½ inch less than their stated size – the filters are actually 19.5” – or a total width of 78”. You can then fill in that extra space with a 2” filter spacer and avoid the higher cost and hassle of ordering custom filters.

You can order spacers in variety of sizes with a maximum width of 6”. Spacers are available in aluminum, galvanized, or stainless steel.
