In today’s restaurants and commercial kitchens, the use of high-temperature cooking oils, solid fuels, and high-efficiency kitchen equipment allow more food to be produced faster. However, along with the speed and efficiency come increased fire hazards. Kitchen fire suppression systems are designed to detect and extinguish fires in the duct, plenum, and/or appliances located under the kitchen hood.
Equipped with any number and combination of ranges, broilers, fryers, and ovens operating at very high temperatures in close contact with fats, cooking oils, and other combustibles, commercial kitchens provide an ideal environment for fire. Not surprisingly, cooking equipment was responsible for more than 60 percent of the fires studied by the NFPA, underscoring the importance of following all fire extinguishing equipment requirements for the hoods, ducts, and cooking appliances used in commercial kitchens.
