Noise control for extractor fans

150 150 Northern Fan Services

Noise control is an important part of our design service. With many commercial extraction systems, noise control is essential. This is often deemed necessary by the local authority.

New commercial extraction systems may need to make additions to a standard system in order to reduce noise. This could be because they are in a built up area with close neighbours. There are a number of ways this can be done. One of the most popular and efficient ways is to add attenuators to each side of the extractor fan. This reduces noise at both ends. Attenuators can be of varying depths dependant on the amount of noise reduction necessary.

One of our recent installations to a new Pizza Takeaway in Hull had added noise reduction added to the system. Our engineers installed 2 fans and 2 canopies plus a fresh air intake system. Both of these fans have been fitted with highly efficient attenuators to each side ensuring maximum noise reduction.

See here the guidance and top techniques for noise reduction in commercial settings.

When fans operate at peak efficiency, they’re at their quietest. A regular clean and service can help improve efficiency. Our team can help with this. Call us on 01482 650100


Canopy Install for Busy Pub Kitchen

150 150 Northern Fan Services

An additional extraction canopy was manufactured and installed for this busy pub kitchen. This was to accommodate extra cooking equipment that had been added to the kitchen and required additional extraction.

The Royal Oak Pub + Kitchen in Old Malton contacted us as they were in need of an additional canopy to fit over a cooker and fryer in their kitchen. The hood was bespoke made and installed within a week of receiving a deposit. We use the highest quality fine grain stainless steel and all items are made to measure.

As some commercial kitchens and businesses grow, additional cooking equipment is added to the kitchen. This often results in needing an extra canopy or an extension to the current and main one. Extraction regulations for canopies over a gas cook line require the canopy overhangs the cook line by 300 mm to the front and sides. Should you have a gas combi oven then the front is required to overhang by 600 mm. Its good practice to have this 600 mm even over an electric combi oven.

Does your business require additional extraction to serve the kitchen? Give our team a call on 01482 650100 to see how we can help.

Extractor Fan Replacement for Café

150 150 Northern Fan Services

This busy Transport Café found they were in need of a new extractor fan. We supplied and installed a more efficient replacement, including compatible speed controller. Our engineers worked around the cafe’s opening hours and visited site on a Sunday evening to ensure no disruption to the business. Alongside the fan replacement, some alterations to the ductwork were necessary. This was bespoke made and installed within a few days.

Some signs that a commercial extractor fan is becoming inefficient and in need of a replacement/upgrade are:

  • Suddenly becoming noisier than usual or producing unusual sounds.
  • Failure of exhaust fan: This requires a specialist HVAC engineer to assess the cause.
  • Fan may seem slower to power up. This is very common in older fans and is often the first sign that a replacement is necessary.

Speed Control Change for Busy Leeds Restaurant

150 150 Northern Fan Services

This busy Leeds City Centre, Latin Restaurant, contacted us about a faulty speed control. The extractor fan was not working as it should be and, upon arrival, our engineers determined that this was due to their existing speed control not being compatible with their fan. The new speed controller was fitted immediately and fan is now working as it should be.

Fan efficiency is an extremely important factor in a correctly functioning extraction system. A compatible speed controller is a factor in this as well as regular servicing and cleaning of the fan. Sometimes, a inefficient fan could be due to a problem and it may need a repair. We can help with all of this. Give our team a call on 01482 650100.
