Restaurant Fire Suppression Systems

One of the most dangerous places for fires is in commercial kitchens. High-heat industrial equipment can be found in restaurants. This equipment is likely to come into direct contact with cooking oils or grease. It can be challenging to protect your kitchen staff and equipment. Fire extinguishers are only part of a fire prevention plan in the kitchen environment. It is essential to have a restaurant fire suppression system built to meet your commercial kitchen needs to prevent costly damage and keep your employees safe.

A restaurant fire suppression system is a safe and efficient way for your kitchen to extinguish fire hazards quickly at the source.

Our experts at Gold Standard will teach you how to maintain and operate restaurant fire suppression systems and help you get started in planning your fire safety procedure.

How Does it Work?

This is how your restaurant's fire suppression system will respond in the event of a fire:

  1. The gas line will be shut off automatically if the system is tripped. This will turn off the fuel supply for the fire.
  2. A chemical fire suppressant designed to stop grease fires from reigniting will release
  3. The kitchen hood will be activated to remove smoke from the area

Kitchen fires can spread and burn even after the gas is turned off. These systems include foam nozzles strategically placed above your workspaces to eliminate any chance of fire spreading.

These systems can quickly put out commercial kitchen fires if they are actuated quickly. Your restaurant fire suppression system must be able to move quickly to ensure that your restaurant's fire does not spread.

Restaurant Sprinkler Systems

Your kitchen may already have a working fire sprinkler system.

Water sprinklers can be substituted for chemical pre-engineered systems but are more effective when combined.

Automatic Water Sprinklers are not designed to address specific needs to extinguish fires on ducts, hoods, deep fryers, and griddles. However, automatic sprinklers can provide general fire protection by their coverage and strength.

Chemical suppression systems can extinguish commercial kitchen fires without the need to splash or reignite cooking grease. 

Your restaurant will comply with the National Fire Protection Association's (NFPA) standards by using automatic water sprinklers and wet chemical systems.

Fire Safety Risks in Commercial Kitchens

The National Restaurant Association reports that each year, an average of 8,000 restaurants in the country experience a fire. Fires cause property damage exceeding 246 million dollars. It is essential to ensure the safety and health of your customers, staff, and property. 

Kitchen fire suppression equipment can be used with regular training and cleaning to reduce your chances of losing or being injured by fire. There are several common fire safety hazards in commercial and restaurant kitchens:

Grease Fire Prevention

Grease can quickly build upon the surfaces of your commercial or restaurant kitchen. This includes exhaust hoods and walls, floors, work surfaces, vents, vents, and floors. Grease is highly flammable, so it is crucial to establish clear guidelines for daily cleaning. Because of the adverse reaction with water, chemical fire suppression systems are needed to extinguish these fires properly.

Hood Filter Maintenance

A kitchen exhaust hood can be a powerful tool in removing smoke, gas, cooking odors, and grease. However, if they are neglected, they can become unreliable and cause fires and other safety hazards.

Electric Wiring Hazards

A fire can be caused by faulty equipment or worn-out or damaged wiring. It is essential to inspect and repair or replace wiring as often as possible.

Open Flames

Open flames close to flammable substances or residual grease can quickly ignite, spreading throughout your commercial kitchen. Open flames should not be allowed to spread. Kitchen staff must have fire suppression training.

Are You Protected?

 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.
