We had the new kitchen put in for Christmas and I need to get it finished.

I need someone who can vent a rangehood up and out a roof. They will also need to arrange fabrication of a stainless steel flume cover as the ceiling height is 3m+ on an strange angle.

Any recommendations?

What's the deal with having a range rood vent through the ceiling and out the roof?  I've been told it's not always a requirement to have it going out the roof, but through the ceiling into the roof.

venting into the roof is illegal as far as I know, I'm sure there is an australian standard stipulating venting and it has to be to the external environment -  either out the wall or through the roof.

venting into a wall cavity or a roof cavity is a fire hazard


edit:  Australian Standard AS1668 - need to vent to atmosphere

I've got a massive roof space that one day will be turned into a home theatre / manland.

I didn't read it in depth, but that's interesting.  I was told by an electrical retailer in SA that it's an option.  I often see range hoods not going into the atmosphere.  Sure there's not more to it than the AS?

Some rangehoods are flueless and exhaust into the kitchen. They use special filters to catch the fats. You often see these in apartment complexes. But a flies rangehoods must exhaust into the atmosphere.

Yeah carbon filters I think they're called. I am currently renovating my kitchen, and doing most of the work myself. I recently installed a rangehood that we have ducted it to vent out through the eaves. The old one had the filter and what I found is that it didn't eliminate the odors as well.
