But as anyone who’s worked in or around a commercial kitchen knows, the unexpected happens, and it’s always a good ideal to prepare for the worse case scenario.

How an automatic fire suppression system works

If a fire occurs in your commercial kitchen, the automatic fire suppression system will activate when the sensor detects a certain preset temperature – usually 450 degrees. At that point, the system releases an extinguishing agent to douse any flames on your appliance and in the plenum. In that same moment, the automatic shut-off valve cuts off your gas supply, which further reduces the chance of injury and serious damage to your kitchen. The automatic feature of of fire suppression systems is the main reason commercial kitchens need them, all systems are also equipped with a manual pull trigger as well.

No need to go it alone

Flue Steam will make sure your system works optimally, complies with all relevant codes (including the UL 300 standard), and perform any maintenance tasks that are required by law every 6 months.
