Commercial Kitchen Extraction Systems


When planning and designing a commercial kitchen one of the major factors to consider is the extraction system. Planning authorities can be very particular in their requirement for the treatment of noise and odour in relation to extraction. Environmental Health officers will usually direct planning applicants to the DEFRA (Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs) report which sets out

Guidance on the Control of Odour and Noise from Commercial Kitchen Exhaust Systems

This 100 page report can be a daunting prospect for the non specialist so it is vital that professional advice is obtained when installing an extract system into a commercial kitchen.

In summary the planning authorities will assess 4 key factors in their consideration of noise and odour when considering an application for a commercial catering kitchen extract system.

Cooking Type Pub, Italian,Chinese,Indian, Café, French etc
Size of Kitchen Relates to the number of covers
Proximity of Receptors The distance to other properties that may be affected
Dispersion The discharge point of the extract system, eg High, Low level

In essence each of these factors is scored against a set of criteria. The score obtained will determine the level, if any, of the noise and odour treatment required.

This is the first in a series of several short videos that we'll be releasing over the coming months that will give you more of an insight into how Bettaquip does so much more than simply design a commercial kitchen project.

We want you to meet some of the team at Bettaquip and see what goes on behind the scenes. Watch (and maybe learn something new) as we show you how the commercial catering equipment we supply can be put into action.

Here's a little teaser of our first video. We must have been mad letting Alan Evans loose in the Electrolux Kitchens LIVE on camera ...
