An SLC 710 fan from the Elta 'Select' range has been fitted during an extensive refurbishment of Rick Stein's Seafood Restaurant.

The single fan was fitted in an outside courtyard area to provide extraction power to three canopies in the main kitchen of the TV celebrity's world-famous restaurant which overlooks the ancient but busy fishing port of Padstow, Cornwall and the Camel Estuary. Being typical of many Cornish buildings, the restaurant's kitchen is situated halfway below ground-level and with 16 guest rooms above the restaurant, noise levels of the extractor fan were a big consideration.

Ventilation and air conditioning sub-contractor for the project, Partridge Ventilation working on behalf of M&E contractor EIC South West fitted the single fan to service the three kitchen canopies but was ably assisted by Elta Fans' representative Mark Butler. Mark programmed the fan's inverter controller on site to restrict extractor performance in order to reduce noise levels for the comfort of guests in the rooms above.

Elta Fans is part of the £85 million Elta Group, a family of businesses with operations in six countries on four continents which, together with a network of international distributors, provides quality fans and related air movement equipment to customers worldwide.
