Nationwide Ventilation has revealed it is now producing LED vapour-proof recessed light fittings within its standard range of commercial kitchen ventilation canopies.
The fittings come in 2ft, 4ft and 6ft twin tube fittings and mount flush within the roof section of the canopy.
Although the lights are more expensive up front, they have an average life of 50,000 hours compared to a standard T8 fluorescent, which lasts for 8,000 hours, according to the Kent-based company.
“One of the other main benefits of the LED lights is that they use 50% less energy than traditional T8 fluorescent tubes, which offers a big saving over the course of the year to the operator,” said Robert Terry, director of Nationwide Ventilation.
Terry said the tubes do not buzz or make any noise during their operation, nor do they produce any UV. As a result, they will not attract mosquito, flies or other insects into the kitchen environment. They also contain no mercury or any other hazard materials.
Nationwide Ventilation specialises in the design, manufacture and installation of high quality kitchen ventilation systems and associated environmental products. Its range covers all types and models of ventilation canopies.
