KITCHEN VENTILATION SYSTEMS
Different elements that will determine the correct kitchen ventilation system for you
- Are you cooking with Gas or Electric equipment
- is your property within a residential area?
- Does the proposed cooking have a high grease content?
- Does the system have high smoke content (char-grill cooking)?
- Does the type of cooking omit strong odours?
- Will the ventilation discharge at low or high level?
- is the property or kitchen fit for purpose?
What types of Canopy do we manufacture and Install?
Wall mounted canopies
When your cookline is single bank cooking, usually requiring a single filter bank manufactured to the length required
Island type canopies
When you have a double bank of filters and equipment so cooking will be done from both sides, usually installed in larger kitchens where space is not an issue
Low level wall mounted canopies
Installed at low level to increase the extraction rates usually over equipment such as fryers etc.
Non filter canopies
Usually installed where no grease or smoke is omitted
Usually installed above dishwash machines designed to reduce moisture
On all electric cooking appliances we can design your canopy system so that can recirculate air so that no duct discharge is required which involves a 5 stage filtration process
Additional Features you may require
We can provide solutions on many different aspects of kitchen ventilation systems
Most systems today will require some sort of odour control to be included within the design.
Carbon filtration is common and offers effective and practical odour or gas reduction in industrial and commercial applications, although dependant on type and amount of cooking time use they will need replacing on regular intervals
UV-Ozone uses UV-C technology to produce ozone and hydroxyl free radicals to oxidise cooking odours through a process of ozonolysis, more initial expense than carbon the maintenance costs are much cheaper
Grease and oil control
Electrostatic precipitators ESP Eliminates up to 98% of smoke, oil and grease particles, filters particles down to sub-micron levels
we can design our systems to reduce the noise levels produced from either the fan motor or air velocity by using duct attenuators (silencers) either in line or bespoke fabrication.
The Process - From Design to Installation
From your initial enquiry, we would usually book a site survey so we can assess the premises
We assess the property for the following information
Are there residential properties close by?
Are there any local authority stipulations regarding the use of the premises?
Measure the site to make sure it is possible to achieve what the client is after
