Kitchen Exhaust systems - NO01047

Many kitchen extraction systems are well designed, well maintained and seldom cause nuisance problems. Others can provide a significant and recurring source of nuisance. Currently, there is little advice available to the enforcing officers on what measures may constitute best practicable means for abating the nuisance. Apart from the statutory nuisance aspects, kitchen exhaust system design may also:

Ø influence the work place environment where temperature and fume control is important; or

Ø have fire safety and hygiene implications where systems are poorly maintained.
