You can choose an insert to mount inside a  30”, 36”, 42” or 48” inch wide custom decorative range hood. This vent hood series comes with the Magic Lung filter-less design using centrifugal filtration which allows you to get more from your blower. The 30”, 36” or 42” sizes are available with a 300 or 600 CFM blower. The decibel or sone rating for this blower is not available. The vent hood liner has two dual level Halogen lights for complete illumination over your cook top.
