The high efficiency of Halton kitchen ventilation systems is based on the unique Capture Jet™ technology, which reduces the effective net exhaust volumes while improving extraction efficiency, with fan and ductwork size minimised. The hoods deliver a small air jet – the Capture Jet™ – to push the upward-flowing thermal current toward the filters. Compared to conventional exhaust-only canopies, Capture Jet™ technology has a 40 to 65% lower required exhaust volume for extracting an equivalent heat load. This yields direct savings in both running and initial costs.

Fanute is the Southern African distributor of the Hydrofinity range of ultra-low water industrial washing machines. These industrial machines use a proprietary polymer technology to reduce the water required to wash dirty linen, with thousands of small polymer beads (known as XOrbs) placed into the wash drum during the wash process. The XOrbs deliver a significant improvement in the environmental impact of laundry, with an 80% reduction in water usage and an over 90% reduction in electricity usage compared to standard industry machines, while providing superior cleaning results and improved fabric care. The Hydrofinity machines are available in two models: 36KG dry weight and 20KG dry weight. Data sheets are available on request.
SA is a water scare country and we have to save this dwindling resource where we can. Flushy SA, is a water saving innovation that essentially retrofits older (single/front) flush water waster systems which can use up to 15 litres of potable water in every single flush! Once installed, the Flushy is proven to save up to 50% of the water used. No need to do a costly replacement of the entire system, all that is required is the little big water saver, the Flushy.
Compared to conventional lighting, LED lights use less energy, last longer and produce a better light. LED lights are eco-friendly, as they contain no mercury. Most of the components of LED lights are recyclable. The reduction in the use of energy contributes to less coal being burned to generate electricity, less packaging (as you replace the bulbs less frequently) and in the long-term, you save money. We stock a vast range of LED tubes, LED downlights, LED filament bulbs and LED standard bulbs.
Toilets consume vast amount of water and in the hospitality environment it is difficult to control the number of flushes.

There is no reduction in pressure and therefore you won’t see any difference in the toilet flushing. The Lilydome waterless urinal waste system uses unique technology which is environmentally friendly and cost effective, doing away with water consumption associated with urinals.
