Commercial Kitchen Extraction & Ventilation

Our kitchen extraction systems are designed and manufactured in accordance with DW/172, “HVCA Specification for Kitchen Ventilation Systems”. To ensure the systems continued efficiently.

Effective kitchen ventilation systems as stated by HSE

The objectives of an effective kitchen ventilation system are to:

  • Remove cooking fumes at source, ie at the appliance
  • Remove excess hot air and bring in cool, clean air so the working environment is comfortable (inadequate ventilation can cause lethargy and heat stress contributing to unsafe systems of work and high staff turnover)
  • Make sure that the air movement in the kitchen does not cause discomfort, eg from strong draughts
  • Provide enough air for complete combustion at fired appliances and prevent the risk of carbon monoxide accumulating
  • Be easy to clean, avoiding build-up of fat residues and blocked air inlets which lead to loss of efficiency and increased risk of fire
  • Be quiet and vibration free
