What You Need to Know About Restaurant Kitchen Fire Suppression Systems, Anchorage, Alaska

If you’re planning to open a restaurant, one of your first priorities should be fire prevention. Commercial cooking environments have the highest risk of a fire, so you want to do everything you can to protect your establishment and its occupants. The guide below explains kitchen fire suppression systems and why you should have one installed.

What Is a Kitchen Fire Suppression System?

Ikitchen fire suppression systemt’s an apparatus that uses dry and wet suppressor agents to extinguish a fire as soon as it breaks out. Attached to the hood of the cooking area, it has a release nozzle component to make it easy to access the source of the blaze before it can damage the rest of the kitchen appliances. 

How Does It Work?

When a fire breaks out, the chemical release nozzles on the suppression system are tripped by a manual switch or by a fire detector. The gas line is automatically shut off to kill the fuel source. The nozzles will discharge a water-based chemical solution designed specifically for kitchen grease fires. The hood will also turn on to remove the smoke that is created in the process.

First and foremost, this will protect the occupants of your restaurant from what could be a substantial threat. But, in addition, it will also prevent the spread of expensive damage to the rest of your restaurant.
