Are you looking for filters for your commercial kitchen range hoods? Interested only in durable solutions? Do you want to enhance the functionality of your workspace by installing lighting? At AiFO Components, we offer both LED canopy lamps and filters for range hoods that purify the air and enhance comfort in the kitchen.

Filters for gastronomy hoods

Grease baffle filters are a crucial element of every commercial kitchen range hood as they are responsible for purifying the air from grease particles. In our offer, you will find two main types of filters for range hoods: labyrinth filters and mesh filters.

Labyrinth filter

The labyrinth filter, also known as a grease trap, is designed to absorb air and fumes, capturing grease particles. The collected grease gathers in the range hood’s gutter, from where it can be easily removed thanks to an oil drain valve.

Due to its design, the air passing through the labyrinth filter changes direction multiple times, effectively trapping contaminants. Hence its name – the labyrinth filter.

Our offer includes a wide range of grease traps of various sizes, fitting the most popular hood models with depths of 300, 400, and 500 cm. These filters are made of AISI 430 stainless steel or acid-resistant AISI 304 stainless steel, making them durable and corrosion-resistant.

Mesh filter

The mesh filter is another type of grease filter, custom-made according to the specifications provided by the client. This allows the mesh filter to be tailored to any dimensions, ensuring a perfect fit for a specific hood.

Although mesh filters are less popular than labyrinth filters, they are also of interest to users. They are made of AISI 304 stainless steel, providing excellent corrosion protection.

Various types of grease filters, such as labyrinth and mesh filters, can be used in commercial kitchen range hoods. These filters effectively purify the air from grease particles. In our offer, you will find a wide range of filters made of high-quality stainless steel, ensuring reliability and long-lasting protection for your range hood. Regardless of the filter choice, you can count on our help and advice in selecting the best solution for your needs.

LED lighting

LED lights installed in commercial kitchen range hoods are intended to illuminate work surfaces. They provide adequately lit workspaces, such as worktables, stoves, ovens, and furniture, even at night.

Main criteria for choosing LED lighting:

  • lumen count – one of the main parameters that allows you to appropriately match the product and the amount of light to a specific place and application,
  • beam angle – the width of the beam angle depends on the type of diodes used. For example, if surface-mounted SMD diodes are used, the light beam has a wide angle,
  • color temperature – in the case of LED lighting, the standard “warm color” means a temperature of 3000K (Kelvin),
  • type of diodes used,
  • cooling method.

LED lights features

Considering the above aspects, AiFO Components offers LED lights designed for installation in commercial kitchen range hoods, featuring:

  • IP65 sealing standard – LED lighting is resistant to particles and debris. Additionally, the lamps withstand high temperatures, so they can be placed in hoods directly above kitchen stoves and commercial grills.
  • High efficiency – LED tubes are highly efficient and energy-saving.
  • High longevity – up to 50,000 hours of operation. Together with significant energy savings and efficiency, LED tubes are an excellent long-term investment.
  • Versatility – commercial kitchen range hoods can be found in various types of food service establishments: restaurants, bars, and canteens. They facilitate essential tasks by illuminating stainless steel furniture, commercial tables, worktops, and burners where dishes are prepared. The lights also minimize the risk of accidents. Everything is well lit and visible during work.

We also offer essential accessories for commercial kitchen range hoods:

  • oil drain valve for the range hood,
  • filter holder,
  • vent valve for hoods.
