Halton Innovation Hub, Béthune, France

This hub’s essence is a fully operational display kitchen equipped with all our innovative technologies, without exception. Enjoy a facility fully oriented to uplifting demonstrations and to an immersive culinary experience!

Be immersed in gastronomical delights and Halton technologies as the benefits reveal themselves to you!

During the challenging and sometimes stressful design period of a kitchen/restaurant, Halton wants to remove ventilation as a source of that stress and create peace of mind, before the investment! That is what was envisioned when designing our brand-new Halton Innovation Hub. At its core is a state-of-the-art and fully operational show kitchen.

All our innovative technologies, without exception, are showcased in real world conditions. The only difference with any other display kitchen is that we also equipped it the ability to show their efficiency.

In addition, see in real-time how Halton Connect allows you to monitor, our solutions and especially confirm that we have achieved your projects’ objectives

Halton Connect is our brand new and state-of-the-art IoT (Internet of Things) platform whose core is an advanced and yet easy-to-use cloud-based portal. It allows you, as well as our engineers to keep an eye on the operation and maintenance of the kitchens’ ventilation, for incomparable benefits.

Halton Connect enables Halton Care smart services that directly contribute to the highest value of ownership and to peace of mind.

See how Halton Connect is powerful and reactive, whatever the number of technologies installed during your visit!

The means Béthune R&D lab is equipped with are also used to study and design customized solutions for you.

Béthune R&D lab is specialised in acoustic and airflow measurements. It is also equipped with an imaging technology called Schlieren. It is widely used in the aeronautical industry to study air flows which can’t be seen to the naked eye or – in our field – the hot air released by cooking appliances.

In addition to serving our own development needs, this technology is often used to make tests for customers who have unusual requirements or challenges, whether linked to very specific cooking appliances or to the necessity to use customised hoods or exhaust device.

Béthune Innovation Hub is backed up to Halton’s European Center of excellence in hood manufacturing, airflow optimisation systems and distant monitoring solutions.

As part of your visit in our Innovation Hub, you will have the opportunity to visit one of Halton’s 3 European Excellence centres in the manufacturing of ventilation solutions for commercial kitchens. See by yourself that innovation also calls for manufacturing and integration quality.
