Protecting your employees, customers, equipment, and restaurant from fire should be your top priority as a restaurant owner. According to the National Fire Protection Association, more than 7,400 fires break out each year in commercial kitchens and restaurants. These cause severe injury and millions in property damage each year.
You can reduce the likelihood of a fire emergency by understanding your risks and installing appropriate fire protection systems. This will keep you and your property safe.
Gold Standard Fire Protection are experts in restaurant fire suppression. Our team can install, maintain and inspect your fire protection systems. We also provide training for your staff, as a well-informed team is a critical part of fire prevention and safety.
Restaurants are at greater risk than other commercial buildings.
The commercial kitchen is the most significant fire hazard in any restaurant. This is where the majority of restaurant fires start. They also cause the greatest property damage. Open flames, high temperatures, and flammable cooking oils all make for ideal conditions for a fire.
A quarter of restaurant fires are caused by deep fryers, which is why they are the most common source of a fire. Cooktops and ranges are the second most likely to cause fires.
Proper equipment handling and cleaning methods can keep these risks low; however, it is vital to have a kitchen equipped with an adequate chemical fire suppression system in the case of a fire.
Most restaurants require a couple types of fire extinguishers:
Fire extinguishers have been specifically designed for use against cooking flames.
ABC Fire Extinguishers are designed to combat fires of any kind, including those caused by flammable liquid (Class A), electrical (Class C), or ordinary fires.
Your employees can use portable fire extinguishers to reduce the spread of fires and other damage in your building. To ensure that your employees are prepared to respond to a fire emergency, we offer training if needed.
Employees and customers are more likely to panic if a power cut leaves your restaurant in darkness. Install and maintain emergency lighting and exit signs to keep the restaurant's atmosphere calm.
Although the first goal is to prevent fires, it is important to be prepared in case of an emergency. Your team should be educated on the protocol for what to do in a kitchen fire and how your fire suppression system works.
With proper preparedness, we can ensure your employees' safety.
Chemical fire suppression is essential for smothering cooking flames and preventing them from re-ignition. We can help you design a system that meets your needs.

Your kitchen is always at risk for potential grease fires. Water can actually spread these fires making it worse. Hot flames, hot equipment, electrical connections, cooking oils, and cleaning chemicals make for the perfect recipe for a disastrous fire.
