We provide Make-Up Air systems with our extract ventilation. The Make-Up Air is introduced into the kitchen through the extract canopy itself, through the ceiling or through a wall mounted plenum depending on available space in the kitchen.
All Make-Up Air systems include a filter system to ensure incoming air is not comtaminated with airbourne debris. If required the incoming air can be heated.
