Construction Services & Ventilation Systems
Vent Services and Commercial Kitchen Systems Overview
During our onsite visits we carry out a full survey with the client to discuss all their technical and design requirements and provide a quote for a bespoke extract system to suit their needs and budget. We also carry out services for fresh air supply into buildings and the removal of stale air. These can be straight forward systems or more complex heat recovery systems; these are fitted in factories, schools, plant rooms or domestic properties by our expert team. We will work alongside your local council to ensure your planning application runs smoothly.
Kitchen Extract Systems
Ventilation in a commercial kitchen is important for health, safety and comfort purposes. The kitchen extract system has always been to remove steam, cooking fumes and grease generated from the cooking equipment. The use of gas in the kitchen from the equipment creates carbon monoxide gases; washing equipment and boiling generates steam which has to be removed from the working area. All our systems are designed to meet HVAC standards and meet DW172 specification.
For a restaurant kitchen ventilation system to be effective it is important to achieve air balance. Air being removed from the kitchen should be replaced. This can be achieved in a variety of ways depending on the food service establishment requirement and the amount of air changes required. Ozone Plasma Odour Neutraliser systems are also available, these are designed to reduce odour emissions to a minimum and are a practical solution when designing commercial kitchen ventilation systems for installation in listed buildings.
By carrying out a site survey, Malfan can assess your ventilation requirements and are able to supply the following services.
• stainless steel extractor canopy or hood
• ventilation ductwork
• carbon filtration systems
• grease mesh filters or baffle filters
• variable speed controller
• air input systems - make up air systems
• fire suppression systems
• bulk head lighting
• odour control unit
Eco-friendly maintenance of filtration systems
In this day and age, extract systems are more carbon friendly and require constant maintenance. We can survey and set up a schedule to maintain the system’s filtration helping to improve the system efficiency and life span while also reducing running costs and reducing the overall carbon foot print.
In the Malfan workshop, we make our own galvanised ducting, stainless steel canopies, wall and centre bench preparation tables, sinks, shelves, racking, and hand wash basins. These can be made to measure following our comprehensive site survey or we can make these to a client’s own specification.
Supply and fit of branded appliances
With a huge list of market leading manufacturers and stockists, we specialise in the sourcing and installation of market-leading kitchen appliances including commercial ovens and fan systems. These can easily be incorporated into any kitchen design and are installed by our expert team of Gas Safe fitters and NICEIC electricians.
All the electrical work in our contracts is carried out by our electricians who are NICEIC registered. We carry out a full range of electrical services from new sockets and lighting, through to complete re-wiring services. We also carry out the necessary surveys through to five year fixed wiring tests.
Gas work and interlock systems
We install all our own gas and plumbing. This is done by our plumbers who are registered Gas Safe. This work consists of all services to cookers, sinks, dishwashers and other equipment. Also, in the kitchen, we install a gas safety interlock system to comply with British Standard B56173. With the need to meet current regulations, all new installations should be fitted with a gas interlock system. We can supply and install a bespoke system to meet the current regulations within the client’s budget.
Plumbing work and sink installation
We install stainless steel catering sinks and well as proving handwashing sinks for areas along with preparation tables to ensure the highest levels of hygiene at all times.
We supply and install plasterboard ceilings, MF ceilings as well as suspended ceilings. A suspended ceiling is the ideal finish for any office, school and warehouse environment, with a range of many finishes to choose from. It offers a pleasing and modern look combined with an acoustic dampening and fire protection properties. It is also an extremely effective way of hiding unsightly cables and pipe work whilst still retaining easy access where necessary. We have considerable expertise in the design and installation of all types of commercial premises, whether you are looking to repair an existing ceiling or install a new one. You will find with our in-house electrician, one call is all you have to make.
We supply and fit new stainless steel wall cladding as well as white rock plastic cladding and a wide range of Acrylic finishes, depending on the client’s requirements.
We supply and install vinyl, carpet and non-slip floorings in all areas including wet room areas. These come in various colours with designs to meet your specific requirements.
We carry a vast range of stock fan units and this allows us to get a client’s system back up and running ASAP in the event of a fan failure. We can supply and install or supply only.
24 hour fan breakdown emergency response
In the unlikely event that any of our ventilation system fans break down, we aim to have an engineer on site within 24 hours. Most repairs can be fixed by our skilled engineers there and then, but should new parts need to be ordered, we will aim to get these to you as soon as we can and have you up and running again.
