Airtherm track record of successful and efficient projects was demonstrated by the recent installation of our Island kitchen canopy system at Elmhurst Primary School in Newham, London. The project involved the successful liaising between Fowler consultants and Newham Council (consultant, consultant and client, respectively).


Airtherm Limited liaised with both the consultant and the Local Authority at all times, attending site meetings, providing comprehensive technical submission, including calculations and drawings for approval prior to manufacture of the equipment.
Our aim was to deliver a complete ventilation package to our client that was fully compliant with current legislation, and endeavour to exceed our customers’ expectations whilst fulfilling all the demands of installing our kitchen canopy, using our own qualified installation team.


The canopy was manufactured from 304 (En 1.4301) or 316 (En 1.4401) stainless steel where specified and are suitably braced to prevent product distortion.

All joints are welded and polished. The island canopy was cut, punched and folded into sub sections and factory assembled by means of computer-controlled seam welds, and non-visible mechanical fixings. Systems are manufactured to the strict guidelines of DW/172, British Standards and conform to HSE for commercial Kitchen ventilation.

The system ductwork was manufactured and installed incorporating cleaning and maintenance access doors where required to fully comply with DW/144 & TR/19 standards.

Fire Suppression System

The island kitchen canopy was fitted with a R102 Ansal fire suppression system which conforms to NFPA standards 17, 17a and 96 and is UL300 listed by Underwriters Laboratories Inc .

The system was supplied with nozzles, detectors, cartridges, liquid agent, fusible links, pulley tress and elbows as required for the specific commercial kitchen application at Elmhurst School.

We can undertake turn-key packages from the simply design and installation of the equipment to providing you with all necessary builder’s work, electrical wiring and commissioning of the complete system.
