Commercial Kitchen Ventilation Systems - Extraction Canopies
Commercial kitchen ventilation properly designed, manufactured and installed is an essential part of every catering kitchen environment. Ventilation systems enable busy kitchens to function efficiently and safely and also provide a comfortable working place for staff.
Ventilation systems are designed to remove heat and grease generated from catering equipment positioned beneath, along with steam from cooking processes, dishwasher systems and other kitchen equipment. Another essential requirement of the kitchen extraction system is to remove carbon monoxide gasses produced from the combustion process when cooking using gas appliances.
8 Tips To Help You Choose The Correct Commercial Kitchen Ventilation System
Commercial Kitchen Ventilation Regulations

Stainless Steel Extraction Canopies And Commercial Extractor Hoods:
Extraction canopies can either be wall mounted or fixed as an island unit. Target manufacture extraction canopies and commercial extractor hoods to suit individual and operational kitchen design requirements.
- front of house bespoke extraction canopies and hoods
- back of house extraction canopies including wall mounted canopies and island ventilation canopies
Commercial Kitchen Ventilation Design:
For a restaurant kitchen ventilation system to be effective it is important to achieve air balance. Air being removed from the kitchen should be replaced using make up air or an air input system. This make up air can be delivered in a variety of ways depending on the food service establishment requirement and the amount of air changes required.
Ozone Plasma Odour Neutraliser systems are also available, these are designed to reduce odour emissions to a minimum and are a practical solution when designing commercial kitchen ventilation systems for installation in listed buildings.
By carrying out a site survey, Target Catering Equipment can assess ventilation requirements and submit ventilation design plans for the required planning permissions if needed.
Target's ventilation system design may include the following:
- stainless steel extractor canopy or hood
- ventilation ductwork
- carbon filtration systems
- grease mesh filters or baffle filters
- variable speed controller
- air input systems - make up air systems
- fire suppression systems
- bulk head lighting
- odour control units
Commercial Kitchen Hood Manufacture:
Target manufacture and install stainless steel commercial kitchen hoods as an individual unit or canopies can be provided as part of a complete ventilation system including ducting in larger new build kitchens or refurbishment projects. Stainless steel extraction canopies can also be manufactured and supplied ready for your own installation team to fit.
- constructed from stainless steel
- fabricated to include a drip channel
- drip channel ensures easy cleaning
- manufactured to HVCA specification for kitchen ventilation systems DW / 172
Ventilation Requirements - Induction Catering Equipment
When budgets are tight and ventilation installation costs need to be kept to a minimum or no gas connection to the catering establishment is available, an alternative solution to gas cooking is powerful induction cooking technology. Target Catering Equipment offer this electric induction cooking alternative to gas catering equipment. By installing electric induction cooking equipment you no longer need an to install an expensive gas safety interlock system thus keeping ventilation requirements to a minimum.
Induction cooking also reduces the heat produced within the kitchen enabling ventilation systems to run effectively using lower speed controller settings. By manufacturing Induction Range Cookers which provide the speed, variable heat and controllability of the traditional gas range but without the need for a gas safety interlock system, you can now obtain a viable, energy efficient alternative to gas cooking equipment for your catering kitchen.
