Stopping Kitchen Fires Before They Start
The kitchen is one of the most likely places for a fire to start in your facility. The fires that come from high-temperature cooking equipment and oils can’t be put out with a bit of water. This is why having a kitchen hood fire suppression system is imperative to get control of a kitchen fire before it becomes a runaway disaster.
What is a Kitchen Hood Fire Suppression System?
A kitchen fire suppression system combines fire detection and grease-fire suppression chemicals in the same system, so it can douse a cooking fire the instant it starts. It fits into your existing kitchen hood, covering your most likely culprits such as fryers, griddles and broilers.
How Does It Work?
Imagine it’s meal time and your kitchen staff is working on overdrive trying to prepare the food and make sure your patients and clients receive the highest standard of food service. A fire can start from the simplest of things, such as:
Kitchen staff having an accident.
Grease build-up in the kitchen.
Flammable materials, such as cooking oils, catching fire.
A kitchen hood fire suppression system that is well-maintained will first detect the fire. This will then trigger the system to release the fire suppression chemicals, putting out the flames. The system saves your business from costly property damage and potentially even saves lives.
