How to select a right insert for a range hood

Q: I decided to have my range hood customized for my own insert. What size of the insert do I need to buy?
A1: Rustica House metal range hoods are made of iron frame covered with metal. It means the dimensions inside the hood are about two inches smaller than its exterior. Most manufacturers offer inserts 24, 36, 42, 48, 54, 60 and 66 inch long. The insert length needs to be one size smaller from the range hood length.

36" hood - 24" insert
42" hood - 36" insert
48" hood - 42" insert
52" hood - 48" insert
60" hood - 54" insert

Q: What about the insert height, some hood models have curved walls and it is possible that the insert is not going to fit inside the hood?
A1: You have two choices. Use a model that is only 6 inches tall.
A2: Buy a model with side walls positioned at about 45 degree angle making them easily adaptable for all kinds of hood shapes.

Q: What range hood insert brands do you suggest?
A: As a copper, iron and zinc hood manufacturer we cannot recommend any third party equipment as it is buyer's personal preference. It depends on kitchen specific needs for ventilation strength called CFM, light filter configuration, extra gadgets and of course price.

Q: What ventilation equipment brands are commonly used by Rustica House buyers?
A: We receive most requests for customizing our hoods for Vent-a-Hood and Broan brands. Both manufactures make their equipment in various shapes, sizes and CFM capacity.

Q: How the insert can be mounted inside the hood?
A1: If you choose customizing the hood for your insert, we will prepare it for that particular model installation. The space between the hood and insert will be filled up with copper finished with the same patina as the rest of the hood.
A2: Most insert manufacturers offer special hardware for filling up the space between the hood edges and their insert. It is usually made of stainless steel.
