Rangehood height requirements depend on the type of cooktop you have.
Electric Cooktops: Regulations state rangehoods should be installed no less than 600 mm above the cooktop.
Gas Cooktops: The minimum required height is 650mm, however we recommend 750mm.
BBQ Rangehoods: A height of no less than 1200mm is required from rangehood filters to the cooktop surface according to Energy Safety regulation standards.
Rangehood heights are created in case of a fire on a cooktop stove or barbecue to prevent fire spreading to the rangehood. Keep in mind some brands of rangehoods also have a maximum performance height. It is always best to talk to one of our professionals about your type of rangehood and the application to determine the correct height.
