Commercial Kitchen Fire Suppression FAQs
Why is it important to have a kitchen fire suppression system?
As a commercial kitchen is used, oil and grease start coating the surfaces near stoves, grills, fryers, and other cooking appliances. With the presence of open flames, it is easy for a grease fire to start, and materials like paper cups, paper towels, and cardboard packaging make the ideal kindling to spread the fire. That is why commercial kitchens are the most prone to fire of nearly all commercial buildings.
How does a kitchen fire suppression system work?
The suppression system is mounted in the hood over a stove, grill, fryer, or other cooking appliance. When a fire breaks out, the intense heat melts fusible links, activating the suppression system. A foam or water-based suppressant is released from nozzles over the cooking surface, smothering the fire, while interlocks disconnect the electrical supply and the gas supply.
How often should a kitchen fire suppression system be inspected?
A kitchen fire suppression system should be inspected and serviced twice a year to ensure it is ready for an emergency. This includes replacing the fusible links, testing the controls, verifying the suppressant tanks are full and pressurized, making sure the nozzles are not clogged, and ensuring the interlock circuits are intact and working properly, among other tasks.
How often should the kitchen hood be cleaned and inspected?
Grease accumulation are the leading cause of fires in a commercial kitchen. The NFPA recommends frequent cleaning of the kitchen hood to avoid grease fires, including scraping down to the bare metal of the hood. For low-volume restaurants, this may only need to be done once a month, while higher volume locations may need weekly or even more frequent cleanings.
What can I do to prevent kitchen fires?
Keep the kitchen clean and organized, and store paper products, aerosol cleaners, and other flammable products far away from cooking appliances or other sources of ignition. Clean the grease traps on grills and hoods often, and change the oil in your deep fryers frequently to avoid flare-ups.
