Kitchen Fire Suppression Systems
Commercial kitchens pose one of the greatest risks for fires. Your restaurant is full of industrial, high-heat equipment that often encounters cooking oils and grease, all of which present a significant fire hazard. Protecting your kitchen staff and the equipment within your kitchen is paramount but can be tricky. Fire extinguishers are cumbersome and are not conducive to the cooking environment, and water only makes grease fires worse. Having a reliable restaurant fire suppression system is essential.
A restaurant fire protection system provides the safe, efficient solution your kitchen needs to quickly extinguish any fire hazard, directly at the source of most kitchen fires — the cooking surface.
