Why Choose Us

Superior Metalworks, Inc. is an NSF Certified manufacturer and has been a member of the National Fire Protection Association (N.F.P.A. #000102050) for over 25 years. We continually update our kitchen hood systems and fabricated items to meet all NSF,N.F.P.A., & I.M.C. code changes and have worked very hard for over 30 years to become leaders in this field with a reference list of literally thousands of satisfied customers, including the PA Governors Residence and the PA State Farm Show Complex. From small college campus kitchens, large Universities, Government Facilities and National chains to the personal touch of your local diner or specialty restaurant, we can help you make your kitchen a pleasant and easy to keep clean place to work. The Hood System is the heart of every kitchen and customizing this to meet specific needs is our goal on every job.

Our Commercial Kitchen Hood Line

All hoods are NSF certified and all components, including the Stainless Steel baffle type filters and lights, are U.L. listed Hoods & N.S.F. approved for grease-laden vapors. U.L. listed Hoods with the N.S.F. rating are also available. All N.S.F. certified hoods are fabricated on the premises and are 100% stainless steel. We do not cut corners like some of our local competitors and the larger manufacturers who use galvanized steel in portions of their hoods. Each system is custom engineered according to the cooking equipment below it and we provide scale engineer stamped drawings for submittal to local authorities and/or third-party inspection agencies.

You can rest assured that every effort is made to provide leniency in pricing without affecting the quality and integrity of our finished product.


Superior Metalworks, Inc. can provide installation for our hood systems throughout Pennsylvania & Maryland. Every installed Kitchen Ventilation System is guaranteed to pass all inspections as per NSF, N.F.P.A. #96 and International Mechanical Code Regulations. If you are not within our installation area, Superior Metalworks, Inc. can fabricate Hood Kits to specifications and ship them throughout the United States. Delivery for an all inclusive hood kit is approximately 3 weeks from receipt of order and installation of a hood system is normally 4 weeks from receipt of order.
