  • Why does the gas supply shut off to the kitchen when the fans fail?
    In commercial kitchens, particularly those equipped with gas appliances, safety measures are paramount to prevent potential hazards. When ventilation fans fail, it can lead to a buildup of harmful gases, such as carbon monoxide and methane, which are byproducts of cooking processes. These gases need to be efficiently extracted from the kitchen to maintain a safe working environment. To ensure the safety of personnel and prevent the risk of gas-related incidents such as fires or explosions, many commercial kitchens are equipped with interlocks or safety systems. These systems are designed to shut off the gas supply automatically when ventilation fans fail or when there is inadequate ventilation in the kitchen. By cutting off the gas supply, these safety mechanisms help mitigate the risk of gas buildup and potential hazards associated with it. In summary, the gas supply to the kitchen shuts off when the fans fail to prevent the accumulation of harmful gases and maintain a safe working environment for kitchen staff.
  • Why do commercial kitchen extract systems need cleaning?
    Cleaning commercial kitchen extract systems is vital for fire safety, hygiene, efficiency, compliance with regulations, odor control, and insurance purposes. Regular cleaning removes grease buildup, reduces health risks, lowers energy consumption, ensures compliance, and satisfies insurance requirements, helping to protect your business and assets.
  • How do you calculate extract canopy size?
    To calculate the size of your commercial kitchen extraction canopy, follow these steps: Measure the total width of the cook line equipment. Add a 300mm overhang to any side not against a wall. This will determine the required length of the canopy. Measure the depth of the deepest cooking appliance. Add 300mm to the depth measured in step 3. This will give you the necessary depth for the canopy. Following these steps will provide you with the appropriate size for your commercial kitchen extraction canopy.
