Busy Kitchen
Commercial kitchens are busy places

Commercial kitchens are busy places, full of hustle and bustle. Picture the scene: chefs and cooks working on all kinds of foodstuffs, shouting out for orders and ingredients, constantly working against the clock. In this kind of environment, it's hugely important to have the right kind of extraction canopies installed.

There are many different types of extraction canopy on the market and it's easy to feel swamped when trying to find the right extraction canopies for your commercial kitchen.

"Why?," you might ask, "Surely I just need extraction canopies to get rid of unwanted fumes and keep my kitchen clean". Well, there are lots of options available for today's range of extraction canopies, and there's more for you to think about.

Standard features on extraction canopies might include manufacture from .3mm galvanised, fully welded construction, drip trays and galvanised filters, but what other options should you be aware of?

Here are just a few considerations to bear in mind:

  • With commercial kitchens already having the potential to be high-stress environments, it can be useful to cut down on noise as much as possible. Some extraction canopies will produce far less noise than others, so it's important to bear this in mind when choosing your model.
  • Do you want your extraction canopies to come complete with aluminium mesh filters? Should they have disposable mesh filters?
  • Would you prefer to have an air supply through the front of the extraction canopies?
  • Should your extraction canopies have surface mounted lights, recessed incandescent or flourescent lights?
  • You'll need to consider where your extraction canopies will be installed and where the exits will be, too.
  • You may find some extraction canopies suppliers with 'off the shelf' offerings, but if you really want the best possible extraction canopies for your commercial kitchen, you may want to choose a professional supplier; this way, your equipment will be manufactured to suit your exact requirements, including its location and the cooking equipment it will serve.
