The Proline Range Hoods PLFW 520.42 is a pyramid-style, wall-mounted range hood that has rewritten the book on hood aesthetics. It’s a fantastic marriage of brushed stainless steel and sharp, defined edges. If traditional, European-style design is what you’re looking for in a kitchen, then the Pro Line Range Hoods PLFW 520.42 will fit right in. Knowing that it can be hard to purchase the correct size of range hood for your kitchen, Proline Range Hoods offers the PLFW 520.42 in up to 5 different sizes

Boasting a 6-speed resolution “variable fan speed” control panel, the PLFW 520.42 has more available options that almost every other hood in its price range. A 600 CFM, pre-installed, internal blower motor is offered in the 24” and 30” models, and an 1100 CFM dual centrifugal blower in the 42”, and 48” models. Super Quiet technology, incorporated into the design of the Proline Range Hoods PLFW 520.42, means that only 1.2 Sones worth of noise are produced when the hood operates at its lowest setting and 5.3 Sones when operating at its highest. Proline Range Hoods has given you your choice of filters with the PLFW 520.42, either stainless steel baffle or honeycomb. Depending on the type of cooking you do, or the position of the hood, you might choose one or the other. Both styles are industry standard, however, and will work for most applications.

The Proline Range Hoods PLFW 520.42 sports a touch-sensitive LED control panel from which you can access 6 blower speeds and a delayed auto shut off program. The Proline Range Hoods PLFW 520.42 features two 20 watt, fully-dimmable halogen lights. Not only are LED lights extremely energy efficient, but they last much longer than traditional halogen bulbs.

The Proline Range Hoods PLFW 520.42 is designed for 6” vertical ducted installations, but it can be easily converted to ductless operation. Chimney extensions are available.
