Need insert hood with inline blower

Posted by gleapman (My Page) on

Trying to track down all brands available in the US that offer 30-inch or narrower insert/power pack type undercabinet range hoods with an inline blower. Found models from Broan (RMPE7004) and Thermador (VCI29CS). Done a ton of research but think there are exotic brands out there I've missed.

What I'd really like to find is if anyone sells a US model of the Blanco Australia hood model RUL70X - see link below. The blower is built in, but takes up only as much cabinet space as the ducts on most hoods. Haven't seen anything like it in the US. Looks like a wall hood adapted for in-cabinet use.

RE: Need insert hood with inline blower

Bill - Thanks. First I've seen that does custom sizes. May be rather pricey though. Unfortunately the smallest inline blower they sell is >800 cfm. We need to keep it under 600 or the inspector will require make-up air. But if we run out of options I may contact them to see if they can use a smaller blower from a different manufacturer.


RE: Need insert hood with inline blower sells blowers that do 600 CFM and less. It is possible for you to buy from a distributor who has a business relationship with fantech, but not from fantech directly. As luck would have it, the company that bill102 linked you to above is a fantech distributor, and can get the fan you want for your custom hood. Hope you understand that this solves all your problems.
