Kitchen Fire Suppression

Kitchen Fire Suppression

Food and drink premises are regarded as one of the more high-risk fire categories because of the hazards associated with kitchens.

Fires in a working kitchen can arise in numerous ways including defective or damaged heating controls, unattended devices, burners overheating and grease/dirt residue build-up. With this specific, very problematic risk in mind, IPH Fire Solutions offer a certified suppression system to suit this particular risk requirement.

How does Kitchen Suppression actually work?

In the event of a fire, the system discharges a wet chemical mix, propelled by a pressurised gas onto the fire itself. This immediately extinguishes the fire and the workplace needs minimal cleaning with no special training or equipment.

The result is an almost instant extinguishing of a potentially lethal fire situation which protects the kitchen, the appliances, the building and of course human life.

Our approved Kitchen Suppression Systems detect excessive heat using a ‘pneumatic detection line’ which is the fastest detecting method of any British Standard approved kitchen suppression system on the market!

Extinguishant agent is distributed to the heat source via stainless steel pipework fitted to the canopy.

IPH Recommend 

PAFSS KitchenGuard® utilises a sophisticated wet chemical agent. This extinguishing medium is more than 99% biodegradable and is therefore not a hazardous waste.

It can also be used as a cleaning agent, since it has excellent cleaning and fat-dissolving properties. This agent uses an extinguishing mechanism called saponification. Saponification helps to turn cooking fat into a soapy substance, smothering/cooling the fire and preventing re-ignition.

When looking for a kitchen suppression system to safeguard staff and work space area, what are my key considerations?

Responsive

Like any fire scenario, kitchen fires need to be dealt with quickly before they can develop and cause further, more significant damage.

KitchenGuard is fast acting both in detection and system actuation.

Linear pressurised detection tubing detects the fire, which melts and bursts when exposed to prolonged flame or heat to activate the system.

This drop in pressure opens the cylinder valve, releasing the extinguishing agent through stainless steel pipework and nozzles onto the hazard areas.

Reliable

Reliability is key. You want a system you can trust to work when you need it to.

KitchenGuard detection tubing is unaffected by oil, dirt and kitchen grease which can cause delay in activation on other systems.

All discharge pipework, fittings and nozzles are stainless steel, vital in potentially corrosive environments as well as complementing the kitchen environment.

KitchenGuard does not require any mechanical movement or electrical signal to detect and activate.

Ready

On guard 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, PAFSS KitchenGuard will be ready if and when it is needed.

KitchenGuard is a self contained system that requires no power supply for the detection of fire and for the activation of the system.

In case of any power outage to the building KitchenGuard will remain operational at all times.

The health of the system is easy to check with simple visible pressure gauge monitoring.
