Lincat introduces SmartVent – an affordable ventilation system for commercial kitchens
Lincat has introduced SmartVent – an affordable, modular ventilation system for gas and electric cooking equipment in commercial kitchens. Designed in partnership with sister company Britannia – the kitchen ventilation experts – SmartVent extraction canopies are flexible, effective and easy to install. This makes them perfect for creating a comfortable working environment in fast food outlets and cafes, as well as smaller pubs and restaurants.
Each canopy is 1200mm deep, with four length options: 1200mm, 1600mm, 2000mm and 2400mm. Units can be ordered either singly or in multiples to suit individual requirements. Each is equipped as standard with bright, energy efficient LED lighting.
Rachel Smith, Marketing Manager of Lincat said:
“SmartVent extraction canopies offer caterers a real alternative to expensive, bespoke kitchen ventilation systems. Modular in design and robustly constructed, they can be produced quickly to meet challenging installation deadlines.
“To accommodate DW172 requirement for a 300mm overhang to the front of the canopy, at a 1200mm depth, each SmartVent canopy is suitable for use with any equipment up to a typical 900 series, such as our Silverlink 600, Opus 700 and even the new Q90 heavy duty range.”
SmartVent canopies benefit from a variable speed fan which incorporates a powerful direct drive motor for reliable performance. The fan can be fitted to vent either vertically or horizontally to suit your individual project requirements. They also operate quietly – at just 62 decibels – quieter than an average mobile phone ringtone. The fan is also positioned in closer proximity to the cookline than standard high level ventilation systems which improves their performance, allowing you to maximise the cooking space beneath the canopy.
As with all Lincat equipment, SmartVent canopies are provided with a comprehensive, two-year on-site parts and labour warranty.
