Halton Skyline brings life to light

Kitchen specific LED-based lighting system that adds unrivaled the human centric dimension to the culinary lighting aspect

The lighting in professional kitchens has been too often neglected and yet it is an aspect which is extremely important. We’re not just talking about energy efficiency and working conditions but also about hygiene. Good quality lighting allows, for example, to more easily track dirt in a kitchen, which could otherwise be unnoticed.

Halton’s Culinary Light combines the lowest return times on investment while providing the best visual comfort and safety in professional kitchens.

      

Halton’s LED based lighting system has been specifically and exclusively designed for professional kitchens, making it the first Culinary Light. It enables you to adjust the general lighting between 500 to 750 lx, while specific zones benefit from a lighting of 1,000 lx, especially in areas with quality control, such as the outlet of a dishwasher.
It also provides a visual comfort of a very high quality, close to sunlight render, and this with massive energy savings.
Halton's HCL benefit from several control options like for instance the adjustment of light intensity depending on the natural light (less light close to the windows, more on the rest of the kitchen) which saves even more energy.

Better visual comfort, safety and wellbeing
• More efficient: the average luminous efficiency is 40% higher compared to typical High Intensity Discharge (HID) tubes.
• More light: provides a better illumination level with an average of 750 lx, increased to 1,000 lx on specific areas for better working conditions or quality control.
• Less dazzle: excellent shielding that prevents the staff being dazzled.
• Close to sunlight render: better colour rendering thanks to a more natural luminous spectrum. Better volumes rendering thanks to the combination of the two spot models with different opening angles. 
• In its most advanced configuration, Halton Skyline has the ultimate capability to adjust the color temperature of the light. It enables creating daylight-similar light sequences depending on the kitchen activity to improve the chefs’ and staff’s wellbeing. Halton Skyline adds a Human centric dimension to the Culinary lighting.
• Easier to clean: light modules are flush mounted thus reducing the number of joints making it easier to clean.

Get your money back in record time
• Less energy: up to 70% energy savings compared to traditional fluorescent tubes to get the same illumination level of 500 lx.
• Durable lighting level: keeps the calculated lighting level after 50,000 working hours.
• Extended lifetime: during the same period, traditional fluorescent tubes have to be replaced 3 times.
• Lowest payback times: specifically designed by Halton for Halton to get the best cost effectiveness.

Flexibility
• A range of control possibilities for instance the adjustment of light intensity depending on the natural light (less light close to the windows, more on the rest of the kitchen) which saves even more energy.
• The focused spot beams can be mounted on a motor to adjust their position without having to access the light module (on request only).

Specification

Suggested specification

The hood shall be trademarked under Halton, KVF/KVI model. It will be equipped with the Capture Jet™ technology. KVF model also integrates a makeup air system on the front.

It shall be supplied complete, ready to be installed with all embedded technologies fully pre-wired from factory.

The following specifications shall be fully observed.

Hood outer casing
• Constructed from 1.0 mm AISI 304 stainless steel in a brushed satin finish. The joints of the lower edge shall be fully welded for better robustness, hygiene and aesthetic. All exposed welds are ground and polished to the metal’s original finish.
• Hood sides shall be of double-wall construction to enable the air supply of the side Capture Jets. Capture Jet™ technology.
• The hood shall be equipped with the Capture Jet™ technology based on the use of two sets of nozzles on the lower part of both the front and side(s). The Capture Jets improve the hood capture and containment efficiency, therefore reducing the exhaust air flow rate required and the energy consumption.
• The air used for the Capture Jets shall not represent more than 5% of the calculated exhaust airflow and the air speed at nozzles outlet shall be a minimum of 8 m/s. Slot- or grille-type discharge shall not be used.
• The hood shall be supplied with an integrated fan to provide the required airflow and static pressure to the Capture Jet™ nozzles. Therefore, an additional supply air system is not required.

Exhaust and supply airflow rates
• The exhaust airflow rates shall be determined with a EN(1) 16282-1 based calculation method taking into account both the convective loads released by the cooking appliances and the hood capture efficiency according to ASTM 1704-12 standard. Both the exhaust airflow rates and capture efficiency shall be justified by a calculation note.
• Any modification of the hood installation height together with the input power, type and dimensions of the cooking appliances shall be brought to the attention of the hood manufacturer as they all significantly impact the exhaust airflow rates.
• The makeup air design, especially the balance between exhaust and supply, shall be entrusted to the hood manufacturer as it also impacts the exhaust airflow rates and capture efficiency. It is also key to preventing cross-contamination between the kitchen areas.

Exhaust plenum and filters
• The exhaust plenum shall be constructed from 1.2 mm AISI 304 stainless steel in a brushed satin finish. The sides of the lower part shall be fully welded to be liquid-tight.
