1,4 billion incoming international tourists a year and probably 1,8 in 2030. This represents just a part of the travel hubs’ constantly increasing footfall, which is predicted to become even bigger, with new and stronger demands, requiring specific solutions. That’s what Halton designs for their catering spaces.
Halton offers full design for catering spaces, incorporating fire safety strategies, including the opportunity of reduction in long expensive duct runs.
Fire Risk is an inevitable consequence of commercial kitchens’ ventilation systems. In the unlikely event of a fire inside a travel hub, the financial consequences can be severe as it often means the closing of the terminal or station where it occurs. As such, restaurant kitchens located in airports and travel hubs require specific attention and provisions to make them safe but also energy efficient and comfortable for the chefs and their teams.
Another aspect of the travel hub, considering the ever growing size and architectural complexity of the terminals, is the difficulty “locate” a route to atmosphere for the ventilation discharge at a reasonable cost. Adding to the complexity are the challenge in balancing multiple ventilation systems within a terminal. The challenges for ventilation in Travel Hubs are many.
Halton’s Fire Strategy can provide the highest level of fire safety, whether used to suppress a fire directly at the source, or provide solutions to help prevent the spread of fire into the terminals through the ductwork or to monitor the duct work to anticipate when the cleaning is required.
When it is difficult to find a route to atmosphere, Halton’s ductless filtration solutions enable kitchens to operate in previously unfeasible commercial spaces of airports and travel hubs. They also enable relocation of extract system at restaurants’ lease-end.
