How Does a Kitchen Fire Suppression System Work?

For Fire Protection Services, Call (800) 968-2871!

kitchen fire suppression grease fire

According to the National Restaurant Association, 57% of all restaurant fires originate from cooking equipment. This means that preventing restaurant kitchen fires and grease fires can be as simple as installing a kitchen hood suppression system.

To protect your restaurant and its occupants, you’ll want to invest in a kitchen fire suppression system. In this blog post from Fire Pros in Grand Rapids, Michigan, you will learn how these suppression systems work so you can be prepared in the event of a restaurant fire emergency.

What Buildings Benefit from Kitchen Fire Suppression Systems?

While fire suppression systems are common in restaurants, they can also be installed in apartment buildings or even student housing. Many commercial building owners feel that investing in kitchen fire suppression systems is less expensive than repairing fire and smoke damage.

Where Is the Kitchen Fire Suppression System Installed?

Kitchen fire suppression systems can be designed to protect a wide variety of kitchen appliances, such as stoves or deep fat fryers. The nozzles for the fire suppression system are installed in the kitchen hood exhaust. That way, the wet chemicals will be discharged directly over the source of the fire.

How Does a Kitchen Hood Suppression System Work?

A fire needs three things to thrive: oxygen, heat, and fuel. Once the system detects a fire, the nozzles above the appliance will discharge wet chemicals. These wet chemicals are engineered to quickly put out fires by covering the flames and starving them of oxygen. As soon as the system trips, the gas line to the appliance will also be immediately cut off, depriving the fire of fuel.

This two-pronged approach quickly puts out a kitchen fire without affecting other cooking stations. This means that you don’t lose all of the food being prepared in your kitchen, just the food that was burned in the fire. Since fires produce a lot of smoke, the hood automatically turns on to remove the smoke from your kitchen. Kitchen hood suppression systems respond automatically to fires, which minimizes loss.

Are Fire Suppression Systems Just for Kitchens?

Fire suppression systems can discharge different chemicals for different applications. For example, a different chemical will be used for grease fires than for oil or electrical fires. Be sure to hire a fire protection contractor who’s familiar with the type of system needed for your application.

What Are the Benefits of Kitchen Fire Suppression Systems?

It’s much less expensive to prevent kitchen fires than to repair structural damage after a fire. For this reason, many business owners appreciate the security that comes from installing a fire suppression system. Not only are you able to protect your building’s occupants, but you are also restricting fire damage to an individual cooking surface.
