Commercial Kitchen Extraction Installers

Commercial Kitchen Extraction Installers Creating Healthy Cooking Environments

A commercial kitchen doesn’t only involve food preparation. Diners waiting for food to be served aren’t always aware of the technicalities involved behind the scenes & when it comes to running a commercial kitchen.

Kitchen staff are exposed to excess grease, steam, carbon monoxide, heat, and odours amongst other things. If this is not well managed it will cause safety and health issues for all.

An installer should put in place ventilation that removes anything that might cause distress or harm during the cooking processes, as well as anything dangerous that could be inhaled.

A professional commercial kitchen extraction installer will ensure everything is implemented correctly according to the relevant local rules and regulations. It’s essential for every commercial food producing establishment.

Designing the Right Extraction System for a Commercial Kitchen

There are certain rules and regulations in place to protect the building, the kitchen staff and customers. Custom kitchen design and installation takes into account the following:

  • structure.
  • the size of the layout.
  • the premises.
  • There are various kitchen design configurations to suit the way a building has been constructed as well as the different kitchen layouts.

Having the best possible kitchen ventilation cannot be underestimated. Anything that shouldn’t be in the air during cooking should be extracted and replaced with fresh air. Carbon monoxide gases are generated during cooking so an extraction system will take care of that.

Commercial Kitchen Extraction Supply and Installation London

An installation, can range from more simple to complex. All components must work together so everything can work in unison.

We’ve seen extractor hoods installed with random ductwork and extractor fans and it’s not the best sight. So, to prevent this, a commercial kitchen extraction supply & install company like Fan Services, will make sure everything is set up correctly (including extractor fan, extractor canopy hood and ducting compatibility).

You should get an installation team to take care of the install, the testing, the certification, and the final commissioning.

Extraction Canopy Essentials – Gas or Electricity

A commercial extraction canopy installed for a gas stove will need an external exhaust point to meet environmental health regulations.

At times when there is no obvious gas connection available, it is understandable that you the business owner will want to keep costs down. Having cooking equipment reliant on electricity will help with this.

There is an added advantage to using electricity instead of gas. It helps to enhance kitchen safety because there are no harmful impurities in the air.  Therefore, it is worth noting that excess heat is also reduced as a result of using an electric hob instead of gas where lower controller settings can be used.

Gas is used in the majority of commercial kitchens in London, but using electric can remove the need for gas safety interlocking installation.

Essential Components of a Commercial Extraction Canopy

This may include the following:

Speed control and fans: The fans (ERP Compliant) are included to move fumes from the hood to the ducts – suitable for voltage inverter speed control.

Drawer with a drip channel:

  • There is a concern that condensed air will collect and drip down both the back and the sides of the exhaust canopy. This could potentially contaminate any food positioned underneath.
  • The drip channel is there to collect and channel the water vapour produced from cooking.
  • The drawer can be emptied to remove any moisture and liquid.

Canopy lights: the lights should be easy to clean, be heat resistant, and have glass which is shatter proof. Ideally canopy lights should have a recessed fitting with LED energy saving lamps fitted into place.

Filters: a filter prevents grease from building up and will filter out other airborne particles.
