high performance
maximized visibility

Designed to deliver competitive containment performance and energy efficiency, the NovaGuard™ operates with exhaust volumes significantly lower than conventional hoods and has higher sight lines as well. By creating side alcoves, and moving plumbing fixtures there, the interior space is increased within the same footprint.

  • Flush sill with spill containment trough
  • Durable chain and sprocket sash system
  • Self-lowering sash that keeps the sash at 18” if raised above the set point
  • 44-1/2” viewing height
  • Factory pre-plumbed and pre-wired hood posts
  • Side alcoves for additional interior space
  • Optional glass end panels in alcoves
  • Optional alcove shelving to fully utilize unobstructed work surface
  • Created for research environments
