Your other option, the filtered models, do not do as well because they will recycle the same air within your building only they run it through a charcoal filter first to make it cleaner. While a ducted model is preferred in most situations, they can be a bit more on the expensive side. Not to mention, you may not have the space necessary to fit the ducts. It is important that you find industrial extractor fans that have been built to last.
One of the common drawbacks of industrial extractor fans is how loud they are. This can be such a problem that most restaurant managers choose to run them only when the amount of steam, smoke, and pollutants in the air reaches an intolerable level. However, there are some high end models that can run in a Quiet Mode that doesn’t make that much noise at all and even can be run all the time if you choose.
Kitchen cabinets & storage - Make your kitchen as efficient and functional as a professional kitchen with well thought out cabinets and storage. That way, all your stuff is close to hand. Dark, richly coloured units are ideal for an industrial style kitchen. The Raffello high gloss in anthracite (pictured) looks striking with bright metal appliances, the sleek, glossy cabinets making a real design statement. The Carisbrooke taupe is a little more subtle than the Raffello and when combined with the right worktop and accessories, also perfectly captures the industrial trend.
Complement your sink with a pull out or spring neck tap like the ones often on show in restaurant kitchens and the industrial look will be complete. Spring neck taps feature an extendable spout making it easier to tackle difficult cleaning tasks and look for ones with a spray head for rinsing fruit and vegetables easily. You may want to include a waste disposal unit underneath your sink. Having one will allow you to remove all food waste from your bins, grinding scraps into tiny pieces that are then rinsed away down the drain. It’s an ideal addition for a kitchen built to entertain and is constantly cooking.
