Odour Control Systems

When a restaurant or commercial kitchen opens it is subject to the environmental criterion that no smoke or odour should be noticed at the exhaust. Environmental Health Officers are able to serve notice on premises causing odour nuisance. We can provide a range of effective methods for controlling odours in the work environment and surrounding areas including Electrostatic {ESP} units, air purifiaction units and UV-C technology.

Make-up Air Systems

Regulations now require that ventilation systems supply an adequate amount of replacement air as incorrect flueing can lead to incomplete combustion and the build up of pollutants such as carbon monoxide. We can install effective make-up air input systems that work efficiently with a kitchens exhaust system.

Heat Recovery Systems

A Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV) is a self-contained system that balances the air intake and exhausts, delivering filtered, fresh air into your kitchen and extracting stale, moist and dirty air with minimal heat loss. This provides energy savings benefits by reducing heating requirements while improving air quality and temperature control.
