Extract & Air Input Hoods

    The air in a commercial kitchen can become full of grease, smoke and cooking odours very quickly and sometimes a bit of help to purify the air is needed.

    This is where our extract and air input hoods come in – the hoods can replace and supply air into the kitchen environment via the canopy. The air that is pumped into the kitchen forms an air-curtain effect, which provides kitchen staff and chefs with a blast of cool air that alleviates the effects of radiant heat.

    Each of our extract and air input hoods are suitable for electrical and standard gas appliances, so no matter what your kitchen requirements, Staybrite will have you covered.

    Extract and Make up air Canopy variations

    Replacement air can be supplied into the kitchen via the canopy. A full-length integral fully insulated make-up air plenum can be incorporated inside the front face or perimeter of the canopy, parallel to the extract plenum. Or, in the case of island canopies, a plenum on each of the canopy faces parallel to the extract plenum.

    Canopy Front Face Discharge

    This is the normal method of introducing the replacement air into the kitchen.

    Induction supply air

    This enables a jet of ambient air to be injected within the canopy via a slot at the lower internal edge of the canopy face, parallel to the extract plenum.

    Perimeter supply air

    This creates an air-curtain effect, providing kitchen staff with a cooling air flow to alleviate the effects of radiant heat and forming a barrier to the rising thermal currents.

    Alternatively, any combination of the above options can be incorporated into the face of any canopy.

    Our low velocity ventilation and extraction systems conform to the British DW172 standard and are compliant with NZBC G4/AS1, B2 and H1 as an acceptable engineered alternative solution. They are manufactured by Staybrite Stainless Fabricators under licence to CK Direct of Peterborough UK.
