Air management specialist Mansfield Pollard has developed a brand new product to re-circulate the extracted air from above a commercial kitchen cookline.


The Bradford-based manufacturer has a reputation as a problem solver within the industry thanks to its knowledge, experience and capabilities which bring value to its customers not only in the UK but in locations as diverse as Azerbaijan and Dubai.

The new re-circulating canopy is the latest addition to Cantech (the kitchen canopy arm of the Mansfield Pollard portfolio) and was designed to overcome the logistical challenges faced by clients with restaurants situated in one of the world’s largest shopping centres; The Dubai Mall.

The new free standing re-circulating canopy- which purifies the air so that it can be reused – is ideal for installing above electric cooking suites where running extract and supply ductwork to atmosphere would prove problematic, such as in listed buildings.

This latest innovative design is the first of its kind to incorporate a self-cleaning electrostatic precipitator and saves on the costs associated with ongoing ductwork cleaning, filter replacement and the downtime associated with maintenance.

Joanna Robinson, MD at Mansfield Pollard, says: “Business remains buoyant in the Middle East and our kitchen canopies are installed in over 50% of the 160 eateries in the spectacular Dubai mall.

“In a region where green credentials and energy efficiency are paramount, it is vital that our specialist team can develop bespoke solutions that not only tackle the problem but ensure a low environmental impact.

“We want to be solutions-focused and to be able to support our clients by offering complete airside packages. They can come to us for everything they need on a project and be confident that we’ll work with them to deliver innovative, cost effective and technically appropriate solutions.”
