    I'm not sure if there is a minimum distance,normally they are fitted in a standard unit.The average distance are approx 800mm and also not too low for obstruction of your head.

    650 mm seems to ring a bell with me

    It's 760mm vertically from 50mm outside the hob edges, to any COMBUSTIBLE surface. Hoods aren't, of course. CHeck the cooker/hob installation instructions, which override the BS's anyway.

    750 – 800mm should be OK. I’ve got a SS & curved glass, twin fan extractor over a 1m wide, 7 burner cooking range; the manufacturer recommended a min of 850mm but that was really way too high for the aesthetics of the hood & the surrounding wall units so I installed it at 750mm. They tend to play it on the safe side; my range often has most of the gas burners going at once and it’s been operating for 18 months now without any problems.
