While it may not be as much fun as picking through all of the high tech, shiny, and attractive kitchen appliances, choosing an effective restaurant hood system is key for any commercial kitchen. While you’ve probably spent years considering the ins and outs of your very own restaurant kitchen and know just what you want and need in it to make your ideal food, there is a high chance that considering airflow did not factor heavily into those day dreams. That’s why below you can find all of the ins and outs of the restaurant hood system, so you can make a choice that makes your kitchen safer and adds to its overall appeal.
The Importance of Fire Suppression
If in your commercial kitchen any cooking appliances or methods will be utilized which include grease and smoke, you cannot meet building codes without a restaurant hood system. Leaving out this feature is illegal and potentially dangerous for your employees and customers.
The Removal of Smoke, Heat, And Grease
Aside from meeting building codes, smoke must be removed for both the safety and health of your kitchen staff. They have to be able to see what they are doing in order to create beautiful food that is also safe to eat. Also, without the proper outlet, the smoke which accumulates in the kitchen will overtake your dining room and drive away customers. A buildup of heat can also make for intolerable working conditions. The removal of grease is key for both fire prevention and overall cleanliness. A buildup of grease means staff must spend extra time cleaning.
