During January

Before you get to preparing for Burns Night on 25th January you have a little time to get some maintenance done if needs be.

You could also improve your profitability by installing the revolutionary, CK Direct Commercial Kitchen Heat Recovery system.

This system has been designed to utilise waste heat from the cookline in order to provide your restaurant and kitchen with all its hot water needs.

Installation is completed without the need for cookline alterations, and has no effect on the extraction system, meaning it can be quickly and easily retrofitted to any site, providing significant cost savings and a fantastic ROI.

CK Direct are based in Peterborough and have national coverage. Since they were established in 2002 they have earned an enviable reputation for quality and support.

You need look no further than CK Direct for:

  • commercial kitchen ventilation and extraction systems including the recirc units for premises that can’t extract externally.
  • stainless steel accessories
  • odour and noise control
  • cleaning and fogging systems


Having enjoyed, we hope, a successful Festive season, January is an ideal month for organising your replacements and upgrades schedule and CK Direct is the company to help you with all of that.

Call 01733 230378 and one of the technicians will be pleased to arrange a viewing, if required, and schedule your project to suit your 2024 calendar.
