It's important that your rangehood has the right ducting system so 'dirty' air can be expelled outside. Uniduct® rangehood ducting systems have been developed to clear the air quickly and quietly. The kits are simple to install and designed to fit any type of rangehood.
Rangehoods are designed to remove steam, grease and odours from your kitchen to help keep your home healthy, hygienic and smelling sweet. Once this dirty air has entered the rangehood, it can do one of two things:
Ducted rangehoods use aluminium filters to catch large particles of fat and grease before expelling steam and odours to the exterior of the house - either through the wall or roof. The filters are washable in the dishwasher and regular washing is important to ensure that they don't inhibit air movement.
|Type of ducting||Why?|
|GOOD||Flexible||Flexible ducting is a solution for difficult installations. It needs to be kept as taut as possible, to avoid excess noise and air friction.|
|BETTER||Semi-rigid||Semi-rigid ducting is your next best option. It is preferable to flexible ducting, in terms of rangehood performance and noise levels.|
|BEST||Rigid ducting||Rigid ducting is ideal because it allows a smooth passageway for the air. It preserves rangehood performance by reducing air turbulence; it's also the quietest option.|
Uniduct rangehood ducting systems have been developed to clear the air quickly and quietly using either BETTER or BEST categories of ducting. The kits contain all the components you need, are simple to install and designed fit any type of rangehood.SEE ALL UNIDUCT KITS AND ACCESSORIES
These filters need to be replaced regularly (every two to four months) or extraction performance is impaired. The filters cannot be washed and re-used.
Fully saturated charcoal filters can become a barrier to air movement and limit the performance of your rangehood; they can also be a fire danger when laden with grease.
Replacement filters are available from Robinhood stockists.
With recirculating rangehoods the air is cleaned before it's recirculated into the kitchen. The air travels through charcoal filters which absorb odours, grease and steam.
