The galley is the on-board kitchen on a water-borne or air-borne vessel, used for cooking food and storage of various food materials. Due to the limited size available on a vessel, the galley in various ships and aircrafts needs to be compact and efficient for optimum utilization of available space. Furthermore, considering the heavy nature of the ships and turbulence experienced during the voyage, the galley in such vessels needs to be robust and rigid. These factors have led to the increasing demand for movement resistant and fixed galley equipment in ships and aircrafts. On-board galley equipment makes use of various overhead cabins and compact fixtures to offer optimum storage capacity and capability.
