• The Back Shelf Short Circuit hood (BSSC) is a self-compensating back shelf hood introducing make-up air directly into the hood through a full-length, self-balancing, internal slot. The Short Circuit design reduces the amount of tempered air that must be introduced into the kitchen. The BSSC hoods are not full-coverage canopies. They are mounted directly to the wall behind the cooking equipment at a distance of 18” to 24” from the top of the cooking surface to the bottom edge of the grease filters. The cooking equipment should not extend more than 36” from the wall. The BSSC hood model is recommended for light to medium cooking loads

  • The BSSC hood features a special design and is not a full-coverage canopy hood; this model is to be mounted to the wall directly behind the cooking equipment at 18” to 24” from the top of the cooking surface to the bottom edge of the filter bank; the cooking equipment should not extend more than 36” from the wall
  • A full-length, self-balancing, internal slot introduces up to 80% of the required make-up air directly back into the canopy hood to be re-exhausted
  • The Model BSSC 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 BSSC hood is shipped complete with no external plenums to install
  • The make-up air is introduced in a way that allows some of the make-up air to be re-exhausted; this reduces the HVAC load of the kitchen and reduces the need for tempered make-up air
  • 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
  • The BSSC hood is recommended for most cooking applications from light to medium cooking loads
  • 100% freight allowed pricing guarantees you will never see freight bills
