Automatic kitchen fire suppression systems are intended to control and extinguish fires without human intervention. A well designed and working kitchen fire suppression system can keep a small fire from becoming a big fire, often saving lives and property.
A well designed and maintained kitchen fire suppression system is a critical necessity if you own a bar, restaurant, food truck or food trailer. Fortunately, All Florida Fire Equipment is the recognized expert in the greater Tampa area for designing and maintaining kitchen fire suppression systems that will protect your business.
Annually, there are over 8,000 fires that occur at restaurants and bars, which results in excess of $245 million in property damage each year. The majority of these fires are caused by equipment used during the cooking of food. The push to lower fat in our food has resulted in increased use of vegetable oil for cooking. While healthier, vegetable oil burns at a higher temperature, making ‘grease’ fires harder to extinguish.
As a result, kitchen fire protection systems have evolved to using a ‘wet chemical’ system, as recommended by the UL 300 compliance guide for modern kitchens. The wet chemical system has the advantage of not only smothering the fire but also cooling the area to keep the fire from reigniting. All Florida Fire Equipment has the expertise needed to design, install and maintain the most effective and efficient system for your restaurant or bar.
As is the case with all fire protection products, your kitchen fire suppression system must be maintained in tip-top share in order to be effective. In fact, Florida law requires that your fire suppression system is inspected semi-annually.
All Florida Fire Equipment sells, inspects and services a wide variety of pre-engineered kitchen fire suppression systems.
