Section 505.1  (2015 IMC) requires that exhaust ducts form kitchen hoods have a smooth inner wall. Many hood manufacturers are now providing a flexible transition duct (much like a dryer exhaust duct) with the hood. I have not allowed the installation of this flex duct based on section 505.1 Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Am I interpreting the code wrong? By the way the 2015 IRC requires the same type duct.
