Commercial Kitchen Extraction

Commercial kitchen extraction is an essential part of every catering establishment. By removing heat, grease and smells along with the harmful byproducts generated during cooking processes and from catering equipment positioned beneath, commercial kitchen ventilation ensures the health, safety and well-being for members of staff and customers.  

Measures are in place to quality assure each individual commercial kitchen extraction system.  As the basis for each site specific extraction system design, our design engineers use the latest BESA specification for kitchen ventilation systems, DW/172 second edition 2018.

Extraction Canopy - Gas Equipment 

An extract canopy is required to not only remove odour and heat but to also remove the harmful by products of combustion such as carbon monoxide gasses which are produced from the combustion process when cooking using gas appliances.

Extraction canopies for gas appliances should over-sail catering equipment by a minimum of 300mm, they will also require an external high level exhaust point in order to meet environmental health commercial kitchen canopy regulations and also a gas interlocking system to comply with BS6173 regulations.

Extraction Canopy - Electric Equipment 

When budgets are tight and commercial kitchen extraction installation costs need to be kept to a minimum or no gas connection is available or you have building limitations, you should consider an all electric commercial kitchen, incorporating powerful commercial induction cooking technology.

The induction cooking process does not give off any harmful by products.  It also reduces the amount of excess heat as you would find with gas appliances,  thus reducing the heat produced within the kitchen and enabling the kitchen extraction system to run effectively using lower speed controller settings and removing the requirement for a gas safety interlock system and high level exhaust point.

Commercial Kitchen Ventilation Design

In order to select the correct ventilation canopy to meet your requirements and comply with regulations you will need a detailed ventilation design and specification to suit your kitchen operation.  At Target we carry out site surveys in order to assess ventilation requirements and submit ventilation design plans and specifications for any required planning permissions. 


Target manufacture commercial extractor hoods to suit individual and operational kitchen design requirements. The commercial extractor hood can be purchased as an individual unit or hoods can be provided as part of a complete ventilation system which will include ducting, fans and filters etc. suitable for 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, or if you require our specialist team of installers can install to your requirements.

All Target extractor hoods are manufactured to BESA DW/172 specification for commercial kitchen ventilation systems.  Extractor hoods are constructed from commercial catering grade 304 stainless steel and include Target's unique drip channel design for easy cleaning.


Suitable for equipment positioned in a cookline against a wall.
