Prevent Catastrophes From Kitchen Fires
Kitchens are full of potential fire hazards. When you think about all the flammable materials in commercial kitchens, like cooking oils, fats from meats and fuel for the gas range, the threat of an out of control fire seems ever present.
Hood Fire Suppression Systems Quickly End Fires
A hood fire suppression system will quickly put out a fire. When fire is detected, the system will release chemicals that reduce the availability of oxygen on the stove, thereby putting out the flames. The system will then remove the smoke produced by the fire.
A few reasons kitchens can be the source of fires:
Flammable materials such as cooking oils are always present.
Movement around the stoves, especially during mealtime rushes, can result in accidents.
Grease can build up quickly if regular cleaning schedules aren’t maintained.
Boxes from food and supply deliveries can ignite of not properly stored.
Fire suppression systems are crucial if you own a restaurant or a kitchen runs within your facility. Commercial kitchens are one of the few places that actively have constant open flames, leaving the potential for a disastrous fire to happen at any second. Northwest Fire Systems is here to provide maintenance and inspections of your kitchen fire suppression systems.
