Commercial Kitchen Extraction Systems
It’s absolutely paramount that any commercial kitchen is able to function in a safe, healthy and hygienic environment. This includes adhering to all workplace, building and safety regulations. At Corsair Engineering we provide commercial kitchen extraction systems that are able to meet all of the necessary demands.
Choosing the right system is a fundamental part of any kitchen. In fact, it has the potential to cause serious harm if designed and/or installed incorrectly.
Our Vortex Division can design, deliver and install a range of systems that match your needs. This could be anything from the simplest wall canopy to the most complex of solutions. We deal with on demand ventilation, UV for grease destruction, odour control, tempered air, noise attenuation – the list goes on.
We have a range of service distribution units (service spines) and a customisable ‘remote supply air cube’ range. You will have access to a genuine one stop shop with the Vortex team.
Our Vortex Division successfully launched 5 years ago. It highlights Corsair’s strengths in design, manufacture and project delivery. With a skilled and experienced workforce, we are happy to work on any and every opportunity – from the simplest to the most complex of projects. Get in touch today for expert advice.
The Importance of Good Kitchen Extraction
Kitchen extraction systems are important for many reasons. Not only do they allow kitchens to function efficiently and effectively in busy conditions, they can also increase the longevity of the kitchen itself.
Our systems help promote the health and safety of staff, making it a more comfortable working environment for everyone concerned.
The systems are individually designed to remove the build-up of heat and grease. This is generated as a by-product of the cooking process in commercial kitchens. Particulate matter, as well as fumes, vapours and heat are captured by the ventilation system and transported to a neutral point of discharge.
Cooking food will produce many different irritants that can affect working conditions and individuals in different ways. These irritants will require dispensing by the correct methods.
The objective of a well designed ventilation system is to improve air quality within a building – whether it’s refining the air within a kitchen using recirculation systems, or through more conventional methods like utilising the fresh air from outside.
All of this allows the extraction of smells, pollutants and also minimises condensation build up.
The cooking processes in a commercial kitchen can produce and release intense odours into the environment. Fitting effective odour control can counter this and greatly reduce the nuisance of noxious odours at the point of exhaust.
Corsair’s odour control systems can be designed as part of a complete ventilation package, or potentially incorporated as a retrospective addition to an existing system. This can assist with meeting local council / environmental specifications, or in sensitive areas of development.
Do I need an extractor fan in a commercial kitchen?
For most commerical kitchens, the answer is yes. Legally, your kitchen should provide adequate ventilation, which protects the health and safety of both your employees and customers – as well as reducing the risk of fire. Cooking processes produce vapours, heat and other gases that need to be managed and effectively removed from the working environment.
- Without an extraction system in place, your local authority may not grant you planning permission.
- If a kitchen is being refurbished, you will need to ensure that any existing ventilation system is retained or replaced.
