Commercial Kitchen Extraction


A commercial kitchen extraction system is an essential part of every catering kitchen, ensuring a safe and healthy working environment for members of staff and also members of the public. Commercial kitchen extraction systems are designed to remove heat, grease, smells and harmful by products generated from catering equipment positioned beneath it, along with steam from cooking processes, dishwasher systems and other ktichen equipment.

Extraction for Gas Equipment

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

Extraction for Electric Equipment

When budgets are tight and ventilation installation costs need to be kept to a minimum, 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, or the amount of excess heat as you would find with gas appliances thus reducing the heat produced within the kitchen, enabling the ventilation system to run effectively using lower speed controller settings and removing the requirement for a gas safety interlock system and high level exhaust point.
