Do you manufacture the hoods?

No, we’re a controls company. Our focus is on the electrical controls, to make your kitchen hood part of an intelligent and demand-responsive ventilation system. Think of Intelli-Hood as an energy savings appliance. While everything else in your kitchen is adding to the electrical load, this system is actively saving you money in your kitchen operations.

We do partner with many hood original equipment manufacturer companies around the globe to offer direct installation packages for both new and retrofit applications.

Can the controls be installed into existing kitchens?

Absolutely. We are comfortable with existing kitchen applications and are accustomed to overcoming challenges that come with them. We’ve worked with a huge variety of hood types and system configurations. Our installations cover nearly every market and location – from the top of a mountain to the water line on maritime vessels. No kidding. Our highest installation is at 11,212 feet above sea level. And sometimes the maritime installations go below sea level, depending on how big the waves are.

Whatever the location, your Intelli-Hood system will be installed by our global team of Melink employed or certified installers.
