Minimum 700mm - over a gas or mixed fuel
This chimney hood is not suitable for
installation above a cooking appliance with
a high level grill.
The fan motor of this appliance incorporates a
thermal cut-out device which will operate if
the hood is installed below the minimum
recommended heights listed above,or if the
motor becomes overheated. If the cut-out

used for ventilating rooms or into the
cavity of a cavity wall or into a cupboard
above the cooker hood.
If the room contains,a flued fuel burning
appliance,such as a gas or oil fired central
heating boiler which is not of the ‘Balanced
