The Envirohood is Australian manufactured and engineered in accordance and compliance with AS1668-2-2012 classified under Type 7 proprietary exhaust hood. They have been independently certified by Global-Mark Pty Ltd.
The Envirohood are fully engineered to maximise effectiveness while minimising energy usage. The Envirohood ensures maximum capture of the exhaust air and efficiency for the cooking process ensuring no spillage of the kitchen exhaust air. The Envirohood incorporates stainless steel honeycomb filters or stainless steel baffle filter that are CSIRO certified to AS1530.1 – the methods used for certification include fire test on building materials components and structures as well as combustibility test for materials.
The advantages of Envirohood is that it utilises less exhaust air which contributes towards less energy running cost. The Envirohood provides for a longer cooking line while simultaneously lowering the airflow in comparison to current standard kitchen exhaust hoods.
Installation of Type 7 proprietary Envirohoods in a commercial kitchen will lower the exhaust airflow rates for exhaust and make up air, the design and engineering of the Envirohood, it allows for less upfront cost because it incorporates a smaller ductwork and fans for exhaust and make up air. The Envirohood is designed to have a larger overhang over the cooking equipment to capture the smoke, fumes and heat as well as incorporated centrifugal jet fan to assist the air curtain which makes the Envirohood the most efficient in the market.
Envirohood technology can the commercial kitchen energy bill for new or existing restaurants. The initial investment and subsequent operating cost are critical factors in determining the viability of improving the total efficiency of the commercial kitchen ventilation system.
