Direct fired make up air systems and Indirect fired make up air systems are both used to provide fresh tempered outdoor air to a building to replace the air that is exhausted by the kitchen hoods.

Engineered Grease Duct

Fresh, clean air is the lifeblood of every kitchen. It’s easy enough to watch a hood capture smoke and grease from a kitchen, or to go up on the roof and see the exhaust fans pulling that same air out of the kitchen, but what happens in between? Ducts play a vital role in safely getting grease-laden exhaust out of the kitchen. Specifying and purchasing engineered, fire-rated, zero-clearance grease duct ensures a safe, code-compliant, and easy-to-install system that offers cost savings and superior performance when compared to field-fabricated ducts.
