UTILITY DISTRIBUTION SYSTEMS

Incorporating a Utility Distribution System (UDS) into your restaurant or foodservice establishment may be one of the best “dollar-for-dollar” investments you can make. If you are planning for a new facility or just making upgrades to your present establishment, you owe it to yourself to consider the myriad of options and conveniences that a well-designed UDS will provide.


Utility distribution systems are passive pieces of equipment that distribute gas, electricity, air, water and steam from a single enclosure located in a cooking battery island or attached to the ventilation system above and behind your cooking equipment line. Instead of having each piece of cooking equipment attached to independent connections, the UDS provides a central hookup location for all of your utility needs.


A UDS consists of four primary components. The first part is the supply riser where all the utilities’ main supply connections are housed. Second is the plumbing chase for individual water, gas and steam distribution lines. The third part is the electrical chase, which houses the wiring and electrical components. The fourth is the pedestal, which provides room for rough-in services.


Since the size and shape of a UDS depends on the equipment being used and the length of your hood, each system is customized for the facility. Manufacturers use your equipment specs to determine the proper amount and type of connections. It is here where your input for future needs will provide the big payoff. By adding a little more than your present needs require, you allow for future expansion and growth.
