On Tuesday 22 June, 2021, six of the world’s foremost design consultants plus the director of Global R&D for Halton, took part in an FCSI virtual roundtable to debate the advantages – but also the challenges and limitations – of ventless solutions in foodservice spaces.
The roundtable addressed the following topics:
- The advantages of ductless ventilation systems in foodservice
- The implications of installing ductless ventilation on existing building infrastructure
- Why many operators are increasingly looking at ductless ventilation systems as an option to adapt retail/office environments into hospitality spaces
- How operators can create new avenues of F&B revenue in areas considered as non-traditional (or, previously ‘dead’) spaces through ventless/ductless ventilation systems
- Not only the opportunities the technology presents, but also any current limitations it faces, globally
- Any pervasive ‘myths’ about the technology and how operators and consultants can navigate a changing regulatory landscape
- Where ventless innovation is heading and what the future looks like for the technology
