A Type I grease hood is required wherever there is non residential stove-top cooking. BDS may allow a Type II hood where a, church, club or similar use doesn't have a full service commercial kitchen and grease producing foods aren't prepared. For more information see the BDS Code Guide or speak to a Life Safety Reviewer.

Hoods are not required for portable appliances of any kind, but if the Fire Inspector finds grease buildup when inspecting the business, the Fire Marshal's Office may require that a hood be installed.
