American Aldes High-Performance Wall Hoods are designed to maximize airflow and minimize noise.
American Aldes Wall Hoods are available as screened or dampered versions. Screened Wall Hoods are suitable for use in exhaust or supply ventilation systems and fresh air kits. Dampered Wall Hoods are for use in exhaust ventilation and dryer venting systems. A magnetic-catch damper ensures a tight closure when the fan is not running and eliminates damper flutter in windy conditions. These hoods should be used when backdraft dampers are not present at other locations within the duct system. Wall hoods with screens and backdraft dampers can be made by adding a spring-loaded backdraft damper to the screen model.
American ALDES Wall Hoods are available in heavy-gauge galvanized steel, stainless steel, and copper in sizes 4″, 5″, 6″, 8″, 10″ and 12″. Standard Dryer Wall Hoods are also available.
