Cooker Hood - extraction point

I need to install a cooker and and I want to extract it outside.

The problem is that the closest external wall would mean that the exit point would be directly under an awning (about 2 foot under).
This is putting me off. I can't lower or higher the exit point easily.

How much cr*p gets kicked out of these vents? Could I put a vent guard or something over the vent?

Routing is elsewhere will be an absolute nightmare. It would be about 4 metres and exit right on the flashings of a flat roof.

problems problem!

Cooking? I just eat the stuff. I wouldn't know the hot part of a saucepan!

Trouble is the awning cost loads and I would not want to ruin it.

I could vent to the side of the house but this is a 4 metre run and it comes out right on the flashing of the flat roof.

I don't know if the extract specifications would allow it but have you considered fitting a couple of bends and a section of duct externally so the discharge is lowered from the exit in the wall ?
That will do it thanks

I have order a rectangular 150mm vent kit with some extra 90 degree elbows. I can then extract it 18 inches lower.

I will probably lose a little effeciency but not that much. The overall run is still less than 3 metres.
