Churches Fire & Security provide kitchen fire suppression products from trusted suppliers to our catering customers nationwide.

A fire suppression system is an essential piece of equipment to keep an commercial kitchen safe from fire. It can quickly detect and douse a fire, minimising the damage that can occur in an emergency.

In commerical kitchen settings, such as in hotels, bed & breakfasts, restaurants, schools or other catering facilities, fire suppression systems from Ansul are often used.

HOW DOES A SUPPRESSION SYSTEM WORK?

Using advanced technology to rapidly determine the presence of a fire (usually via smoke/heat detectors, or manually using break glass points), a fire suppressant is released to remove the oxygen from the affected area. Nozzles are located underneath cooking hoods with specific amounts of suppressant. These are designed to cover the selected area with the suppressant, cutting off the oxygen supply and dousing the fire, avoiding the spread of the fire and avoiding any extensive damage.

The activation of the fire suppression system can trigger the fire alarm in the building, allowing for safe evacuation of the area whilst the system works to extinguish the fire. After activation, the system can be re-charged by a Churches Fire & Security technician within hours, meaning the kitchen is safe to use as quickly and safely as possible.

In a busy commercial kitchen, there are many sources of ignition, increasing fire risks at every use. Fire extinguishers and blankets should be positioned in the kitchen as standard, with suppression systems providing automatic protection in the immediate area.
