• The Short Circuit (SC) hood model is a self-compensating canopy style hood. This hood model introduces make-up air directly into the canopy through an internal, full-length, self-balancing slot. The Short Circuit design of the hood allows most of the make-up air to be re-exhausted. This design boasts superior efficiency compared to other models by removing minimal amounts of conditioned air from the kitchen space. It also reduces the amount of make-up air needed in colder climates and may eliminate the need for tempered make-up air altogether. The SC hood model is recommended for light to medium cooking loads.

  • The Model SC is built in accordance with: NFPA96, ETL listed and tested to UL710 Standards, and approved by the NSF


  • The use of heavy gauge materials and construction techniques result in an end product that is more rigid and easier to install
  • The SC hood is shipped complete with no external plenums to install
  • Introducing the make-up air directly into the kitchen hood canopy allows almost all of the make-up air to be re-exhausted; this reduces the HVAC load of the kitchen
  • Superior system efficiency with minimal removal of conditioned air from the kitchen space
  • Make-up air is introduced in a way that reduces the need for tempered make-up air in colder climates and may eliminate the need for tempered make-up air altogether
  • Kitchen comfort is maintained in all seasons due to the make-up air being immediately exhausted and not cooling/heating the kitchen space
  • Make-up air is discharged in a manner that does not interfere with capture and containment of the kitchen hood system and does not impede cooking operations below the hood
  • Can be used in conjunction with one of Larkin Industries optional external supply plenums
  • The SC hood is recommended for most cooking applications from light to medium cooking loads
  • 100% freight allowed pricing guarantees you will never see freight bills
