By setting requirements on the equipment's maximum permitted noice level, an improved work environment can be achieved.
Boiling pans must not exceed a 68 dBA sound level in accordance with EN ISO 11201 mentioned in BS EN 13886:2005, or equivalent, where the distance to the boiling pan is 1 metre, when the boiling pan makes most noise (with the mixer running).
- Test results from noise testing conducted in accordance with measurement methods stated in the requirement.
A professional kitchen is an energy-intensive activity. In a school, for example, it is estimated that the kitchen facilities answer for approx. 13% of the electricity consumption (excluding heating). The equipment used for cooking, refrigeration and dishwashing is energy intensive and remains switch on for many hours a day. It is highly relevant, from a life cycle cost perspective, to demand energy-efficient equipment and good quality products. Professional kitchen equipment is designed for a long life and intensive use - a boiling pan can, for example, last up to 30 years.
The version date indicates when the sustainability criterion was created or last updated. Last reviewed dated tells when we last checked that the sustainability criterion still is relevant.
