This lively, one-hour online seminar will begin with a design-focused pictorial review of unusual ventilation systems introduced at recent European trade shows. Then, we’ll discuss how spot exhaust systems extract airborne contaminants, new ventilation technology, re-engineered systems, planning guidelines, and installation tips. The session will conclude with a gallery of kitchens created with great-looking and great-working ventilation systems.





  • Show European ventilation system designs so you see new, creative ways to meet the functional requirements of the ventilation system, as well as enhance their design aesthetic.


  • Explain the technical details of a ventilation system in the house, as well as the duct path leaving the dwelling so you understand that an effective ventilation system starts with the placement of the ventilation appliance and is completed by a proper duct path. This information will help you plan and specify systems that function properly.


  • Introduce you to the re-engineered proximity and telescoping downdraft products available so you can take a fresh look at this ventilation technology.


  • Explain new ventilation system alternatives (such as duct-free proximity ventilation and perimetric ventilation) so you are confident in proposing a wider variety of ventilation solutions to your consumers.
