Flammable liquids, gases, food, oil and ignition sources are a major concern for insurance companies, and owners of hotels and restaurants are now recognising this risk. Modern kitchens present a dangerous combination of high amounts of flammable oils and extreme sources of heat, creating an environment in which fire is a constant threat.

As well, extraction hoods capture a large amount of grease that deposits in the interior of the hoods, the fans and ducts, providing possible ways to initiate or propagate a fire. But one danger that’s often beyond the control of the kitchen worker is that of the flash fire, or grease fire.



Kitchen Fire Suppression Systems

Because burns from grease fires can be devastating, it’s important that kitchens serving large volumes of food employ kitchen fire suppression systems. These automated systems detect grease fires and shut down the heat source while at the same time applying chemical to the flaming oil.

As well as being able to provide and maintain a Kitchen fire suppression system, AFE can also provide a specialist wet chemical portable fire extinguisher in the event of a flash fire.

Wet chemical fire extinguishers are specifically designed for suppressing class F fires from cooking oil or grease. In any type of commercial kitchen, grease fires may flare up, especially in deep fat fryers. Other kitchens with inexperienced and multiple users, such as those found in dormitories are good locations for a wet chemical fire extinguisher.
