Backguard Flue Risers For Range Tops
A flue riser is a metal piece of equipment attached to the back of range tops to direct excess heat into the ventilation hoods. Commercial ranges feature multiple cooktops ranging from open burners and hotplates to charbroilers and griddles. These cooking surfaces generate a considerable amount of hot and greasy air. Redirecting these potentially harmful fumes into the exhaust hoods helps create a safer and more comfortable working environment.
Backguard flue risers have a simple design but robust construction. They have channels to mount on your stovetop and flue outlets to catch and rise the heat and vapors towards your restaurant hoods. They are often made of high-quality stainless steel to withstand heavy use and intense heat. This material ensures rust resistance, promising top-grade performance for many years. Therefore, you will not have to buy one again and again.
Flue risers come in various widths and heights. Width measures go in line with standard range sizes. Most restaurant range widths vary between 24 and 72 inches, with increments at every 12 or 18 inches. Therefore, all you need to check when selecting your backguard is the width of your ranges. You can also choose from several heights. A taller backguard means a shorter distance from the range hood. When this gap is smaller, ventilation performance will be better.
Backguard flue risers are available with or without shelves. Shelves can give you extra storage room without blocking the flue outlet. Thus, you can keep your spices or other seasoning ingredients and food prep utensils within close reach. Single and double deck shelves are your existing shelf options. A solid shelf is the standard design, but you can also choose from tubular or slotted shelves.
With a flue riser, you can protect your staff and kitchen walls from excess heat and fumes. Chef’s Deal has backguard flue risers in different sizes and shelf designs to match your restaurant ranges and kitchen layout.
