The Best Method for Containing a Commercial Kitchen Fire is a Fire Suppression System

Flash fires in commercial kitchen occur all too frequently. They start for a variety of reasons. Whenever a flash fire erupts, it can be a serious interruption to your business. It means a call to the fire department and potentially, damage to your equipment. The most common type of commercial kitchen fire is a grease fire. Common water sprinklers simply don’t do a decent job of suppressing a grease fire – but your fire suppression system is an essential tool for containing a grease fire. Your fire suppression system connects both the range hood and the gas line and when activated, will cut off the fuel source for the fire. A fire suppression system also has nozzles that have been installed on the range hood’s ventilation system which spray a fire suppressant. These duel methods effectively contain flash fires so your equipment won’t get damaged and your employees will be safe in the event of a fire in your commercial kitchen.
