Why install a fresh air replacement system?

A fresh air replacement system is an essential part of any commercial kitchen. Current guidelines advise all commercial kitchens have some type of mechanical air replacement system in place. These systems ensure to:

  • Replace air removed by extraction system
  • Prevent odors escaping the kitchen area
  • Keep a good air quality for employees and customers
  • Reduce CO levels

Covid Safe Kitchen with Fresh Air Replacement

150 150 Northern Fan Services

Make your commercial kitchen Covid safe with a fresh air supply system.

The law pre-covid, stated that there must be an adequate supply of fresh air in any enclosed work space. This has not changed since the pandemic and is now, perhaps, even more important.

Due to the risk of aerosol transmission (when someone breathes in small particles in the air (aerosols) after a person with the virus has been in the same enclosed area), it is now more important than ever to have a fresh air supply to reduce that risk.

Aswell as reducing the risk of aerosol transmission, a mechanical fresh air supply system reduces CO2 levels in poorly ventilated, enclosed areas such as commercial kitchens.

Pictured above – an example of a recent fresh air supply system installed by our engineers at a hotel in Malton, North Yorkshire. Fitted into the external wall, the system comprises of a plate fan with 4 way diffuser, louvre and a replaceable filter to filtrate any bugs, dust and debris from outside.

Take a look at a recent publication by HSE detailing guidance for ventilation post-covid. Ventilation and air conditioning during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic (hse.gov.uk). Now the hospitality industry is running as normal, it is essential we make kitchens as Covid safe as possible with fresh air supply systems.

Gas Interlock Panel Repairs

150 150 Northern Fan Services

A gas interlock panel fault can interrupt the smooth running of a kitchen massively. A fault code on the panel is not always due to a fault with the fan/ extraction system. Sometimes this fault can be with the interlock panel itself.

Our expert team of engineers can quickly attend and determine what is causing the fault to get your system up and running.

An example of a quick repair above. This restaurant in York called as their interlock panel was showing a fan fault and cut off the gas supply right before a busy Saturday’s service. Our engineers attended the same day, getting the system back up and running temporarily before returning the next working day to replace the faulty panel.

Canopy and Duct Install at Water Park Café

150 150 Northern Fan Services

Canopy and System Install – The North Yorkshire Water Park asked us to install a new canopy they had purchased online. The canopy was an off the shelf product and did not come with any ductwork. We supplied the ductwork and attended site prior to install to decide the best extract route with the team there. With a busy business with a lot of footfall and customers moving around the building, it is always best to extract up through the roof wherever possible to direct any fumes away from customers. We manufactured a roof cowl to install above roof level to disperse the air.

Check out our Facebook page for other recent work www.facebook.com/northernfanservices

Complete a contact form to make an enquiry for your business.

The quickest way to get a quote from us and to proceed with an install is to Watsapp kitchen pictures and cooking equipment details to 07927743336. The information we require is:

  • Pictures of the kitchen showing area extract system is to be fitted.
  • External pics showing outside of kitchen wall.
  • Full details of kitchen equipment including dimensions
  • Kitchen room height

We can then provide you with a free rough quotation. Once you are happy to proceed, our engineers will come out to complete a site survey. Then the system goes into production and installation can usually take place in 7-10 working days.

Extractor Fan Cleaning

150 150 Northern Fan Services

Annual extractor fan cleaning and servicing is an important part of running a commercial kitchen. It is a vital part of keeping your system running efficiently and is also a legal obligation. Insurance companies, Environmental Health Agencies and Fire Safety Officers will ask for evidence of regular extractor fan cleaning. We offer a full extractor fan clean and service and issue a cleaning certificate to you once this is complete. Should you require any photo evidence of this, please let our engineers know and they will also provide this.

Get in touch with our sales team to get a quote for your commercial extractor fan clean.

Our team will ask for photos of the fan and its location and a site address. That is really all we need to get you a quick quote over. Email us at sales@northernfanservices.co.uk or Watsapp this info over to 07927743336. We will work around your opening times to get this done quickly and efficiently with minimum disruption to your business.

The cleaning of your extract fan not only improves the overall hygiene of your kitchen but also decreases the fire risk. Your insurance wants to confirm that you are mitigating the risk of fire by cleaning your extraction system regularly, to prevent risk to people and property. 

As well as cleaning the fan, our engineers also service it, changing any parts necessary to prolong the life of the fan and keep your system working to its full potential.

Tailor-made Extract System for Outdoor Kitchen

150 150 Northern Fan Services

This high quality, tailor-made extract system was designed and installed by our engineers for a beautiful outdoor kitchen at this gorgeous property. A custom, double skimmed, flue was installed to serve an outdoor pizza oven and a custom built stainless steel canopy was fitted to serve a gas barbeque.
