Restaurant Hoods & Ducts
According to the National Restaurant Association, 8,000 drinking and eating establishments report a fire each year and approximately 57% of those restaurant fires involve the cooking equipment.
Based on the combination of open flames, cooking oils, electrical connections, cleaning chemicals and paper products, restaurants and other industrial kitchens require special fire protection.
Improved efficiency and a change in the oils used in cooking have created a scenario that combines higher temperatures with oils that have a higher auto ignition temperature in which they can spontaneously ignite.
Pre-Engineered Wet Chemical Suppression Systems
Restaurant fire suppression systems are designed to work in the unique set of circumstances posed by commercial kitchens. Fire Fighter Sales & Service Company has a number of products for kitchen fire suppression. We recommend the installation of a pre-engineered wet chemical suppression system, specifically designed for the hazards of a commercial kitchen.
Pre-engineered wet chemical systems have
• pre-determined flow rates
• quantities of extinguishing agent
• specific pipe sizes
• number and types of nozzles prescribed by the manufacturer.
It is important to have these systems installed by a qualified fire protection contractor. Fire Fighter Sales & Service Company will also perform your semi-annual inspections, including fusible link replacement, in order to ensure proper operation of the system.Fire Suppression
