Viking Introduces New and Improved Ventilation Hoods


New Features and Benefits

The new and improved line of Viking Professional Ventilation Products includes the following new key features:

  • NEW backlit LED knobs extend and illuminate to control lighting level and fan speed, then fully retract when not in use
  • NEW long-life LED bulbs are energy efficient and easily replaced
  • Maintenance free ventilators never need to be cleaned due to commercial-type filters that handle the dirty work
  • 18”H ventilation hoods have tough-box ventilator housing that protects blower and quietly removes smoke and odor (ventilator blower sold separately on all 18”H. hoods)
  • Built-in heat sensor activates the ventilator to full power if cooking temperatures reach uncomfortable levels
