This is one of the most important aspects to resolve when
designing kitchens. To guarantee a hygienic and safe environment
for the kitchen worker gas combustion fumes, steam and smells
must all be ventilated externally.
Every cooking block that emits fumes, produced from the
cooking of food or the combustion of gas, must be equipped
with a ventilation hood.
Generally, these have to be installed at a height of 1900mm
(from the lower edge of the hood to the floor) but, obviously,
it has to be compatible with the equipment below. On the
whole, they are made of stainless steel for ease of cleaning
and resistance to rust.
