hoods


Explanation:
GDT :

hood hotte d'aspiration n. f.Syn.capotage n. m.

Déf. :Dispositif d'entrée d'un système de captage.



As in "capote" being a hood, bonnet (chimney cap, chimney cowl), which is no doubt what Poornima's cowling is referring to. You know, any sort of poitned cap type thing which goes over air-vents on the roof, hoods for extractor fans, caps to protect the chimney from rain, bird nesting and so on.
