A well designed kitchen ventilation system is required to create a safe and comfortable working environment. There are many hazards to consider when designing a suitable ventilation scheme including fire risk, dangerous fumes and odours, noise and regulations.

There are various standards and statutory regulations that apply not just with respect to the design and installation but also the maintenance of ventilation systems and failure to comply with these can have serious consequences and have lead to criminal prosecutions.

Airedale Ventilation Services design and manufacture complete ventilation solutions that out-performs your expectation even in the most demanding environments.  From surveying and servicing existing systems through to complete design and manufacture of new systems that ensure you comply with your legal responsibility.

Catering and cooking can produce significant quantities of fumes and vapours as well as large amounts of heat. Ventilation is necessary to remove these and discharge them to a safe external location. This is usually achieved by mechanical extraction via a canopy hood installed over the cooking appliances. The ventilation system should also provide general ventilation throughout the kitchen. It is particularly important to provide adequate make-up air for gas-fired appliances. The lack of an adequate supply of air, and/or incorrect flueing arrangements can lead to incomplete combustion and the accumulation of combustion products such as carbon monoxide.
