Ventilation & Extraction Systems

KES Facilities Ventilation

In addition to the refrigeration and air conditioning, KES Facilities are also experts in the design, install and maintenance of ventilation systems. Ventilation is absolutely necessary in an extensive array of industries and in most cases your ventilation system must meet a certain standard to ensure that your company stays compliant and that your insurance remains valid.

Ventilation systems are often required in commercial kitchens, any industry where spray booths are used and also various other applications including transport companies, universities and most types of manufacturing.

Ventilation as well as keeping your organisation compliant, also has many other benefits which make it extremely beneficial. An efficient ventilation system will reduce your company’s operational costs and also improve its environmental performance

Grease, Smoke and Odour Reduction systems for ventilation

KES Facilities are now manufacturing and designing bespoke Grease, Smoke and Odour Reduction systems for ventilation in commercial kitchens and food production in house as well as fitting existing brands. Due to project variations and restrictions in space, time and council expectations we know the needs of a custom service in all areas to achieve a compliant system.

We share our experience and knowledge with consultants, contractors, environmental health officers and architects to ensure effective nuisance and pollution control system which can both filter and purify air being discharged from a commercial premise in line with the essential DEFRA Guidance.

All kitchens vary and grease, smoke and odour control solutions have to be customised to a fine balance between performance, cost, space and the style of cuisines provided. Our team can work with you to carry out an Odour Assessment of any commercial food premises, this will then lead you towards making the selection of a nuisance control system that will comply with local authority requirements that is such a sticking point in today’s kitchen ventilation

Kitchen Extracts in commercial kitchens are designed to provide operatives with a safe and comfortable working environment, while maintaining food hygiene requirement. Compliance is achieved by removing the by-products of cooking from the cooking area including heat, humidity, grease, smoke and odour.

These are removed from the cooking area by the kitchen extract and are usually discharged outside of the building around 1 metre above the eves.

This discharge point can be at high level, but is often at low level, and in an area where the products of discharge can cause a nuisance and none compliance. Issue with local authorities for noise complaints, odour and grease issues are the most common.

It is increasingly common for establishments to take responsibility for the discharge of the nuisance caused by the products of cooking. When prospective tenants/owners seek planning advice from local authorities to open a new restaurant, demands will often be made of them to offer grease, smoke and odour control to suitable levels. This may also include maintaining an aesthetic solution too, environmental controlled areas even more so will have tighter restrictions.

KES facilities are successfully providing and installing highly effective products for Kitchen Extracts from its Yorkshire based operation centre. These products include Baffle, Mesh, HEPA, and Activated Carbon filters to control grease, smoke and odour emissions from kitchens.

Our aim simple in minimising any impact they have on their surroundings while achieving the compliance needed for kitchen ventilation systems to be signed off by planning.

With a varied product range to include some new alternatives which are being sought out by other competitors, restaurant owners, designers, and the local authority.

Products offered by us include UV Ozone Technology, Electrostatic Precipitators, and Atomising Odour Maskers / Neutralisers to deal with the nuisances and planning restrictions

From extract design for both the new installations, and retrofit situations including, size, weight, air resistance, capital and revenue costs along with environmental benefits.

The solutions we offer include incorporating grease, smoke and odour control, and to enhance this further, a new product is also being launched, the Kitchen Extract AHU.

We can manufacture a custom Kitchen Extract Air Handling Unit utilises Activated Carbon and HEPA filtration technology, combining this with a fan and attenuator, all mounted within a double skinned aluminium box to offer the complete kitchen extract system or ventilation system to suit most needs

Fresh air / Extract air (Ducted ventilation systems)

Fresh air and Extract air plants are now more important than ever in the environment that we live in, with the focus on a clean and healthy working environment.
Fresh air is the basic requirement for a healthy and productive workplace.
It may sound obvious, but any workplace – be it industrial or commercial, factory or office – needs to constantly circulate a fresh airstream to replace and ventilate stale and noxious air.
Not only is ventilation with air filtration and purification a fundamental to a healthy work environment, it also ensures that machinery is not damaged or components and products spoiled by fumes or condensation.
Air ventilation systems are on the requirements of building regulations

Some systems lead towards Tempered Fresh Air Ventilation. These are generally adopted to satisfy Building Regulations requirements for building occupancy levels where there are no openable windows. In these circumstances, air handling plant and associated ductwork are installed to meet CIBSE requirements and incorporate air handling plant consisting of motorised inlet dampers, panel / bags filters, electric / LTHW heater batteries, supply / extract fans and in-line packaged attenuation

KES Facilities Ltd can offer a full design and installation service for Fresh Air and Extract systems.
A full overhaul of existing plants can also be carried out in some situations to bring older systems back into full use.

We can also provide replacement air filters and fan belts for all types of systems, linking them up with annual maintenance contracts to ensure frequent and regular changes are carried out

Our engineers will design and install a bespoke ventilation system that is perfectly suited to your premises and your business.
