Vent-A-Hood Patent

Another patent was awarded to Vent-A-Hood – this one for the ARS ductless hood.

Contemporary kitchen with stainless steel and wood units

Vent-A-Hood has some of the oldest and longest-standing patents in range hood ventilation from the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Over the decades, the company has become something of an expert in the leadership position and design requirements it takes to earn a patent. Today, that includes its newest patent for the Air Recovery System (ARS) Duct Free Range Hood.  While ductless hoods have been on the market for some time, Vent-A-Hood vowed not to manufacture a ductless range hood until a design met its high standards for collecting cooking contaminants and cleaning the air to the best of abilities. The 4-phase cleaning system of the ARS duct free hood was the product that finally reached Vent-A-Hood’s high engineering standards — and, likewise, the unique recognition of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. In a recent ceremony, the official patent was presented by CEO Miles Woodall III on a plaque to Bob Seloff, Vent-A-Hood engineer, for his instrumental role in developing the ARS line.
