You may even want to run the fan a bit after your staff has finished for the day in order to clear up any residual pollutants that may remain in the air. If you are currently looking at the different options of industrial extractor fans you have available, you will have to decide whether you would like a model that uses ducts or one that uses filters. The former choice is the most efficient as it can take the polluted air directly out of your building and replace it with clean air.
Kitchen lighting - Harking back to the overhead lighting of factories and warehouses, pendant lighting is particularly well suited to an industrial style kitchen. We love ones in copper, such as this bronze-effect dome light and this industrial-style copper light with eye-catching rivets and chains. If you’re looking for something simpler, this shiny Manison dome light is a great option. Or why not explore our Sylcone range of retro lights? Available in black, nickel, brass and copper finishes, they’ll look great in an industrial-inspired space. Plus they come with an oversized, hand-blown bulb that will finish off your lighting look perfectly.
There is no need for extensive cabinetry in an industrial kitchen as open shelving on an exposed brick face is the norm, typically using reclaimed old timbers or beams that were already within the space. When displaying items on these exposed shelves, it is best to stick with the trending materials of wood, stainless steel and plain white dishware. It is hard to accurately recreate the looks of exposed ductwork in a space, so traditionally this type of design is used in renovated loft spaces.
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.
