Teaching Kitchen Ventilation provided by Halton

Addressing the unique operational and acoustic requirements of Culinary School Kitchen Ventilation

Culinary schools are different than the typical production kitchen but must have the ability to address intermittent and high demand quickly.

Halton’s commercial kitchen ventilation system, whether our Capture Jet Series of energy-efficient canopies or our Ventilated Ceiling Systems, provide solutions that address noise and energy efficiency.

From the design concept, Halton is prepared to meet with your design team, contractors and tenants to review the system and its capabilities.

Considerations for Culinary School Kitchens and their unique ventilation requirements.

Culinary Schools are not significantly different than a traditional classroom. The same requirements for a teaching environment apply to a culinary school with a couple of important exceptions. In a teaching environment, open site lines and low noise levels are essential elements of a properly designed classroom.

In a teaching kitchen exhaust system, demand centers around the course schedule. You would have some periods of inactivity followed by a significant uptick in cooking. The system is required to be able to respond instantaneously as well as isolate inactive ventilation stations as well.
