Halton steam hoods are suitable for the dishwashing areas. In general, they are also well suited for applications where grease filtration is not the main requirement.

Fully compatible with M.A.R.V.E.L. airflow and energy optimization technology, they ideally complement Halton's Capture™ Jet hoods and ventilated ceilings, especially for LEED (1), BREEAM (2), DGNB (3) etc projects.


The dishwashing areas are often considered as secondary. And yet, if some provisions are not taken, the working conditions inside can easily become a nightmare and hygiene of the kitchenware supposed to be clean can also be compromised.

Dishwashing areas are indeed characterised by important heat and humidity loads, not only coming from the washing equipment but also from the kitchenware that come out and continue to cool down and dry where they are stored. Germs and bacteria coming from guests' plates and trays as well as detergent constitutes additional pollutants. Noise of the equipment should also be taken into account.

The Water Wash technology is designed to automatically carry out the regular filters cleaning, with no outside intervention necessary. It saves a lot on filters cleaning cost. The productivity, the hygiene and the fire safety are also improved.

KVD hoods are designed to remove the steam released by dishwashing equipment. They are equipped with specially configured deflectors to separate the moisture from the extracted air.

KVD hoods are also equipped with a low-velocity makeup-air built into the front face.

Main features and benefits

  • Front Capture Jet™ on KVD as an option for a better steam capture.
  • Better hygiene thanks to less condensation in the extract ducts.
  • Deflectors removable without tool, of max 500 mm width to be easy to clean in a dishwasher.
  • Surface LED light fitting (IP54, IK10). DALI compatible power supply as an option.
  • Better capture efficiency and comfort for the staff thanks to a low-velocity diffuser built into the front.

About Diswhashing areas' ceilings

Halton's hygienic and rigid suspended Ceiling (HSC) has been specifically designed for areas with strict hygiene requirements, such as dishwashing areas. It distinguishes itself not only by a high cleanability and stability over time, but also by materials and provisions that greatly limit the build-up of potential contaminants on its surface. More information about HSC.
