Typical challenges

Display kitchens are distinguished by aesthetic demands, one more audacious than the next that does not necessarily totally harmonize with the air and ventilation laws. Customizing the ventilation systems’ components that are in view and innovating by developing specific technologies are key to enable the highest architectural flexibility.

Removing the smoke, heat and odours released by the cooking appliances with the lowest possible airflow is an as significant challenge.  It is a delicate balance between energy savings but also ensuring your guests are not annoyed by air draugths, ventilation noise or odours.

Display kitchens are positioned in the middle of the dining area. Fire safety, cleanability, and lighting should also be carefully considered.
