EDGE Ovens Hood System

extra-low cfm close capture exhaust hood

Dramatically Lower Exhaust Rates

The innovative EDGE close capture hood necessitates fewer CFMs to effectively capture, contain, and extract grease-laden vapors, surpassing rival conveyor oven manufacturers’ hood systems by up to 40% in efficiency. 

Cooler Kitchen Environment

By optimizing the capture process, we have significantly reduced the heat and thermal impact on the surrounding environment, leading to improved HVAC efficiency and reduced energy consumption. Not only will this result in a more comfortable working environment for your staff, but it will also contribute to a cleaner and healthier kitchen. 

Automated Fan Speed Adjustment

Why waste money on excessive exhaust when you can have an extraction hood that adjusts to your needs? Our innovative hood system features an optional automatic fan speed adjustment, ensuring that the CFM rate is optimized based on the number of ovens in use. Not only that, but it also dynamically adjusts the make-up air CFM rate accordingly.

frequently asked questions

Does the hood rest on top of the oven? Is the oven attached to the hood?

The EDGE hood does NOT rest on top of the oven. Similar to traditional canopy hoods, the EDGE hood is suspended from the ceiling joists at a specific height using 1/2” All-thread, which is supported by Unistrut slotted channel. The hood and oven are NOT attached intentionally, allowing for maneuverability of the oven from beneath the hood. This design ensures convenient access and ease of maintenance without requiring complicated disassembly. 

Why do I need the belt skirting? Can I use the hood without them?

The innovative belt skirting works in sync with the EDGE close capture hood and must be used to achieve the remarkably low approved CFM rates. To achieve these market-leading rates the hood capture area has been significantly reduced, covering only the belt entrance and exit areas of the oven.

In a stacked conveyor oven configuration, the exhaust from the lowest oven has to travel further to reach the hood’s extraction filters. Without the skirting, it is challenging to control the exhaust from the lower ovens without drastically increasing extraction rates. This would contradict the concept of a low CFM hood, which is why the skirting is crucial for maintaining the intended functionality and efficiency of the hood system. 

Why should I choose the EDGE Close Capture Hood over a traditional canopy hood?

Superior Capture Efficiency - The EDGE close capture hood is meticulously engineered to optimize capture efficiency by containing and extracting oven emissions directly at the oven mouth. Its strategic design and innovative skirting system, ensures almost complete exhaust capture, preventing the dispersion of emissions and heat into your kitchen area. This remarkable capture efficiency is accomplished while operating at up to 30% of the extraction rates typically seen in traditional canopy hoods. 

Dramatically Reduced Operating Airflow Rates - With the EDGE close capture hood, you benefit from considerably lower extraction rates. This not only conserves energy but also minimizes the requirements of your make-up air (MUA) and HVAC systems. 


Cost Savings  -The combination of lower operating airflow rates, reduced MUA and HVAC requirements translates to significant cost savings over time. Enjoy improved efficiency while reducing utility costs. 

Compliance and Safety -The EDGE close capture hood is designed to meet or exceed industry regulations and safety standards. By choosing our advanced hood system, you can ensure compliance with ventilation guidelines and create a safer working environment for your staff. 

market leading exhaust flow rates

Our market-leading, ETL approved, exhaust rates set the industry standard and surpass all other available conveyor oven hood systems. They are up to 40% more efficient than our competitors' hood systems and up to 75% more efficient than traditional canopy hoods. By integrating our EDGE close capture hood system with our market-leading conveyor ovens, you can be assured of the most cost-effective solution available. This combination not only reduces utility bills for the oven and hood but also leads to significant savings in HVAC and MUA requirements as well as electrical usage.

Automatic Safety Temperature Sensor

Enhancing safety measures, a ceiling-mounted temperature sensor in the hood capture box detects oven activation and promptly initiates the exhaust fan. This system effectively thwarts any unintended or deliberate oven usage when the hood is inactive, guaranteeing safe oven operation by ensuring the hood's activation.

Reduced Oven End Loss

When compared with other conveyor oven manufacturers, the EDGE oven range efficiently recirculates a significantly greater proportion of air within the oven chamber. This retains heat and minimizes heat loss at the oven's end. When coupled with our hood skirting system, heat and exhaust escape is virtually eliminated.

'Tab & Slot' Assembly
