Commercial Kitchen Vents Are Important
Commercial kitchen vents are vital to the smooth running of a restaurant, whether small or large. They provide a flow of air to keep the kitchen safe for your staff and your customers by filtering the hot greasy air produced from cooking and bringing in make-up air to cool and oxygenate the kitchen. They also keep the air smelling fresh and stop kitchen smells floating out into the dining room – very off-putting for customers.
The best vents are made with stainless steel, which does not corrode and will last many years. Some contain variable speed motors to suit both busy and slack times and can include smoke alarms. Every hot food preparation area needs a vent, however, with ranges side by side, a single range hood can cover all of these. These range hoods can either be wall-mounted or provided as an island installation to suit the layout of your kitchen.
The right style and size of vent hood for your kitchen is essential. It’s important for efficient functioning, as well as safety, as lack of correct
ventilation can lead to a deadly carbon monoxide build-up and to accumulations of grease, which can encourage mold and mildew, which are also health hazards and which can get your restaurant closed down! Restaurant owners have to abide by the regulations, so finding the right ventilation is important to keep from getting a fine or even being shut down for violations. So make sure you pick the right size and style for your business.
