.: Canopies & Hoods


Stainless steel Canopy



At Thermo Fireplaces & Braais we have many years of experience in the manufacture of Canopies, also known as hoods or gathers. We can custom-make all square, rectangular, hexagon and octagon canopies.

Whether you want a mildsteel, powder-coated mildsteel or (any grade of) stainless steel canopy - we can help you.

All canopies can be made with either a top flue-outlet (whether top-middle, top-side or top-rear) or rear outlet (out the back). We can also advise you on the gather and chimney-size needed for optimal removal of smoke.

Should we consider a canopy to be inadequate to alleviate a problem, we can advise you on the addition of an extraction fan.
