FCSI Roundtable on Advantages and Limitations of Ventless (Ductless) Solutions sponsored by Halton

Six of the world’s foremost design consultants plus the director of Global R&D for Halton discuss the advantages and limitations of ventless (ductless) solutions.

On Tuesday 22 June, 2021, six of the world’s foremost design consultants plus the director of Global R&D for Halton, took part in an FCSI virtual roundtable to debate the advantages – but also the challenges and limitations – of ventless solutions in foodservice spaces.

The roundtable addressed the following topics:

  • The advantages of ductless ventilation systems in foodservice
  • The implications of installing ductless ventilation on existing building infrastructure
  • Why many operators are increasingly looking at ductless ventilation systems as an option to adapt retail/office environments into hospitality spaces
  • How operators can create new avenues of F&B revenue in areas considered as non-traditional (or, previously ‘dead’) spaces through ventless/ductless ventilation systems
  • Not only the opportunities the technology presents, but also any current limitations it faces, globally
  • Any pervasive ‘myths’ about the technology and how operators and consultants can navigate a changing regulatory landscape
  • Where ventless innovation is heading and what the future looks like for the technology
