Britannia Kitchen Ventilation - Ventilated Ceilings
Kitchen Ventilation - Kitchen Ventilated Ceilings - Britstream Range
Britannia has been servicing the commercial kitchen ventilation market since 1995. Our portfolio contains a long, long list of fully satisfied customers and end-users; a legacy which provides us with a reputation that is second to none. From the largest to the smallest of projects, no effort is spared in finding the right solution to your kitchen ventilation problem.
Since its inception, Britannia has built its reputation upon a team of the industry’s most experienced people, with a combined knowledge far surpassing that of our competitors. It is this intimate understanding of the product, the industry and our focus on customer service, which has seen us grow into the UK’s market leading supplier of Commercial and Institutional Kitchen Hoods.
Our ethos is simple: we provide a range of products of the highest quality, at very affordable prices, whilst being mindful of the impact their manufacture and use has upon the environment.
Britannia offers a range of products by covering all types of ventilation systems which includes: grease filtration systems, recessed fluorescent light fittings, service distribution units, splash back wall cladding, fire suppression systems and make up air systems. Canopies and ceilings are manufactured from type 304 satin polished stainless steel. All welding is of high penetration, reground and polished to match the original finish. Joints in the canopies are formed by means of internal standing seams with stainless steel bolts, which are then covered with a full height cover strip and sealed to the canopy valance with food grade sealant. All construction complies with DW172.
No visible fixings are used in the construction of our hoods.
The Britstream Range
The Britstream range of hoods has been developed after years of “in the field” research and development of kitchen hoods. Apart from this real-world input, we have extensively tested and retested products at our own facility in Leamington Spa as well as sponsoring many external test procedures on various components.
The result of all this work is a hood system based around a group of modularised components which can be configured in multiple ways to create, what to all intents and purposes is a bespoke product. All parts have been designed to achieve a predetermined performance but are specifically not over-engineered. The combination of these properties provides a consistently high quality product, with great flexibility of application and at extremely competitive prices.
Ultrastream UV Filtration System
Britannia also offers the Ultrastream range of canopies, which use UV Filtration to provide secondary grease destruction and odour removal. This keeps extract ducts clean and allows for cleaner discharge air.
First stage grease removal is achieved using the Superstream high efficiency baffle filter panel, which also provides a fire barrier between the kitchen and ductwork.
Grease and odour destruction is achieved by passing the extract air through the UV lamp assembly located within the canopy. Intense UV light energy breaks down and destroys residual grease and odours by a combination of ozonolysis and photolysis.
Refresh Recirculation Unit
Refresh is a self contained kitchen ventilation unit that comprises an extract and supply canopy with a dedicated services tower at one end. The tower has an integral fan unit and additional stages of filtration to clean the air before being introduced back into the kitchen.
Contaminated air from cooking appliances is filtered first by the Superstream baffle grease filters located in the canopy to remove the vast proportion of the grease from the airstream.
Using the power of the internal fan in the tower, the air is then drawn out from the canopy and through the tower assembly and passed through four additional stages of increasingly efficient filters, to remove remaining grease before going through carbon filter elements to reduce odours. Filtered air is then reintroduced into the kitchen through the supply diffuser on the front of the canopy.
Ventilated Ceilings from Britannia
Britannia provides two types of ventilated ceiling system – Silverline and Heydal.
Silverline is the canopy based ventilated ceiling that provides dedicated extract chambers which are safely ducted to the atmosphere, reducing the fire risk within the kitchen space. The surrounding ceiling area is manufactured from stainless steel infill panels and supply air diffusers, providing a clean line of sight across the kitchen, whilst providing a durable aesthetically pleasing solution.
Heydal is the fully demountable ventilated ceiling system (see image at top of page) that provides a clean line of sight whilst combining flexibility of layout for the end client who may want to move his kitchen equipment around in the future. The void above the ceiling is grease free and is used to introduce clean air back into the kitchen.
