Replacement Flakt Woods fan installed at busy Wetherby pub

150 150 Northern Fan Services

This busy pub/restaurant just outside of Wetherby, West Yorkshire gave us a call as their commercial extractor fan had become very noisy and wasn’t operating to its full potential. As the existing fan was old, the best option was a replacement fan. The extractor fan was fitted externally, so, we came out to complete a site survey.

HVAC systems during the Covid-19 Outbreak

150 150 Northern Fan Services

Advice relating to the current Covid-19 outbreak is developing and changing rapidly. But one of the main recommendations for all workplaces is to have efficient HVAC systems in place. For all food service establishments, this includes a reliable cooking fume extraction system and fresh air intake system.

See a publication recommended by HSE containing current guidance on HVAC systems – https://www.cibse.org/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus,-sars-cov-2,-covid-19-and-hvac-systems

HVAC systems. Kitchen extraction systems. Fresh air replacement in commercial kitchens.
A sufficient extraction system with fresh air replacement is more important than ever.

We always recommend that busy kitchens have a reliable and sufficient fresh air in take system installed. This includes a separate fan fitted to draw air in from the outside. This ensures optimum air flow and is in-line with the current guidance relating to Covid-19 safety in the workplace.

Have a look at our page relating to the installation of fresh air in take systems – https://northernfanservices.co.uk/fresh-air-replacement-systems/

When you install a fresh air replacement system to your kitchen, it adds replacement air for what’s being drawn out of the kitchen by your extraction hoods. These systems solve many problems such as unpleasant odours, negative air pressure, excess grease, and poorly performing extraction hoods.

New Full Extraction System in York Restaurant

New extraction system install in York city centre. Bespoke made commercial stainless steel canopy. Kitchen extraction system fitted.
1.5metre bespoke made stainless steel canopy in DP1 fine grain stainless steel

This busy restaurant and grill house in York city centre called us as they needed a new full extraction system installing. The existing system was no longer sufficient for what they needed. An engineer attended site to complete a site survey to determine what system would be best for this location.

Once the client was happy we got the items in to production. As all of our systems are bespoke made, installation will go ahead roughly a week after a deposit is taken. The canopy was made to measure and included a filter bank and 2 x bafel filters (pictured above). Check out our canopies page at https://northernfanservices.co.uk/tailor-made-canopies/ to see how we could help your business with a new system.

The Corner Grill House, York.

The new full extraction system included canopy, filters, ductwork, extractor fan, speed control and all weather louvre. Installation took a day to complete.

Clients often contact us when their current system is no longer performing as it should. This is usually because the kitchen has grown and new equipment has been added, but the extraction system has not been extended to accommodate this. Have a look at this link from HSE detailing the guidelines for ventilation and extraction in catering kitchens https://www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/cais10.pdf.

There are a number of ways to detect whether an extractor fan is in need of an upgrade or replacement. These are:

  • The fan may have become noisier than usual.
  • The fan may start to rattle.
  • It may stop and start.
  • It may run slower than usual.
  • It may not be operating at the usual level of extraction.
  • If you have added to your cooking equipment since your old system was installed, you may need to also upgrade your fan to cope.
