Kitchen ventilation avoids use of ductwork and structural changes
Britannia Kitchen Ventilation has installed a Refresh circulation unit in the central-London office of Cadbury Green & Black to provide kitchen ventilation without extensive ductwork running to atmosphere or the costly structural alterations normally associated with traditional installations. The free-standing unit incorporates a services tower housing an integral fan unit and four stages of filtration to remove grease and odours from the airstream. The cleaner air is reintroduced to the kitchen through the integral supply-air diffusers on the front face of the canopy.
Another benefit of Refresh is that the risk of fire within the structure is considerably reduced as no greasy ductwork runs through the building, which could ignite and spread fire to the rest of the building. In addition, cooking fumes are not exhausted to atmosphere, so there is no danger of kitchen odours causing a nuisance to neighbouring properties.
Refresh is supplied with a comprehensive controls monitoring package that indicates when filter elements are due for change.
