Commercial Extractor Fans from CK Direct
Commercial extractor fans are necessary for the safety of your kitchen and comfort of your staff and customers.
Kitchen ventilation is a crucial part of your commercial kitchen design – as integral as designing your cooking or refrigeration equipment. Commercial extractor fans are not simply a way to improve your working environment, they are a necessity. New kitchens that don't have adequate ventilation in their design risk being rejected by their local planning authority. As well as compliance to health and safety regulations, if commercial extractor fans are not effectively maintained and cleaned and your kitchen experiences a fire, your insurance company will contest any claim you make. One of the most common triggers of commercial kitchen fires is grease-filled air that can result in suddenly combustion. Kitchens that do a lot of frying are particularly vulnerable, as is wok cooking where flames and flare ups are integral to the style of cooking. Routine maintenance of commercial extractor fans is therefore crucial – with professional cleaning services recommended. If you consider commercial extractor fans remove and collate grease and sit above your stove – neglecting to clean and maintain your kitchen ventilation system make them the number one fire hazard in your kitchen.
Commercial Extractor Fans from the Experts
Commercial extractor fans serve a number of functions in your kitchen – the Health & Safety Executive has concerns about carbon monoxide and other potentially poisonous gases that result from combustion of gas. Carbon monoxide can be lethal, and in busy kitchens the effects of drowsiness the gas creates is a risk that has to be taken seriously. Poor kitchen extraction is also considered to be responsible for particles released during cooking that could trigger respiratory illnesses. Commercial extractor fans should be regularly checked, cleaned and maintained to ensure they are working at their optimum.
