Foodservice Exhaust Hoods & Restaurant Ventilation

The foodservice exhaust hood is the central component to consider when designing and planning a restaurant ventilation system. We use AutoCAD technology for your design.

Exhaust Hood Design by Dine CompanyExhaust ventilation is important to safely deal with both smoke and grease. Factors in the design of such systems include the flow rate (which is a function of the fan speed and exhaust vent size) and noise level.

Foodservice exhaust ventilation for commercial kitchens and restaurants is typically engineered to building and kitchen specifications. Exhaust hood systems are designed to remove cooking or steam vapors from the kitchen and replenish with tempered fresh air. Proper ventilation is important for the safety of the kitchen and the health of everyone in the establishment.

While some foodservice equipment only requires simple ventilation, such as dishmachines and pizza ovens, cookline equipment requires careful planning and design in order to meet local and state safety codes.
