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.

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.

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.
