Commercial Kitchen Ventilation
Adequate and effective Commercial Kitchen Ventilation is required to create both a safe and a comfortable working environment in commercial kitchens. Systems are often required to quickly and efficiently remove significant quantities of fumes and vapour, discharging them to a safe external location, as well as to help dissipate large amounts of heat. This is usually achieved by mechanical means through the use of canopy hoods installed over the kitchen appliances, with systems also providing good levels of general ventilation throughout the kitchen as a whole.
With a wealth of experience designing and installing commercial kitchen ventilation systems, we are able to supply and install materials for any commercial application – from small canteens right up to large scale industrial operations.
Our comprehensive product portfolio ranges from simple, extract-only kitchen hoods through to more complex supply-and-extract kitchen canopies with insulated supply sections and air-capture capability.
Our range of canopies is manufactured from austenitic 304 brushed stainless steel (18swg thick), ensuring that each product not only provides robust, reliable performance but also an elegant design solution. Featuring welded construction, with no rough edges, the canopies also provide low maintenance and safe surfaces where wiping down may be necessary.
Where lighting is specified, canopies are available with either surface mounted or recessed lights, all of which fully meet IP65 specification and deliver 500 lux light level directly to the cooking area. Lights are all manufactured from shatter-proof glass, are both vapour and steam resistant and may be hinged to allow access above the canopy for maintenance.
Available in a range of mounting options, the majority of our canopies are supplied with high efficiency baffle filters (cyclone type) which may be easily removed for replacement or for routine cleaning in a dishwasher. The filters do not clog and so deliver a constant pressure/ volume. They also create an effective fire barrier. Canopies are available in the following categories:
These units provide the efficient and safe extraction of fumes, odours and contaminated air.
Extract and Supply
Extract and supply units effectively remove fumes and vapours whilst also delivering a supply of clean replacement air.
Supply, Extract and Capture
These remove fumes and vapours, deliver a supply of clean cool air and facilitate the capture of contaminants.
Ansul R102 Fire Suppression System
Our Ansul R102 Fire Suppression System provides an automatic (or manual) fire detection and extinguishing system to protect cooking equipment, canopies and ductwork. Custom designed to meet the needs of each individual application, the system is based on an Ansul automan regulator and suppresses fires by spraying at the plenum area and filters, cooking surfaces and the exhaust duct system with a pre-determined flow rate of Ansulex liquid.
Splashback Wall Cladding
Our splashback wall cladding systems are custom-made to suit each particular application. Manufactured from folded and welded stainless steel, the cladding system provides highly durable, easily-cleaned surfaces to run along the wall below the canopy, behind the appliances and extending down to the finished floor level.
Manufactured from Type 304 Catering Grade Stainless Steel, panels are mounted onto the wall using a hidden fixing system, with the external seam then sealed with a food grade sealant. Columns, corners and sockets can all be easily accommodated either during manufacture or on site during installation.
Service Distribution Units
Our Service Distribution units provide a robust, easily cleaned housing for the mechanical and electrical services that are required to supply cooking equipment. Custom-designed for each project, the units feature separate chambers for each service with access panels and doors to suit.
Typically, the units comprise a horizontal service spine and either one or two vertical risers – according to where the services need to be routed. Each riser can have internal divisions to form separate chambers for different services. The units are all manufactured from Type 304 Catering Grade Stainless Steel to provide a durable, fire resistant and low-maintenance enclosure.
