Kitchen Fire Suppression Installation
When you run a busy kitchen, business survival depends on detecting and suppressing fires quickly. Restaurants face higher risks of fire emergencies than many other industries, and a fire emergency can occur at any time. As a result, it is essential to make sure your commercial kitchen’s fire suppression system is always operating as effectively as possible to ensure your restaurant will not go up in flames. Scheduling routine inspection, testing, maintenance, and repair service is a must to protect any commercial kitchen from a fire emergency, and it is required by local jurisdictions and insurance authorities.

Benefits of Installing a Commercial Kitchen Fire Suppression System
Since much of the equipment in a commercial kitchen uses heat or fire, the space is particularly vulnerable to accidental fires. Every responsible restaurant owner should have a fire suppression system installed so that when a fire occurs, it can be addressed and contained quickly and efficiently.
Fire extinguishers and blankets can be useful firefighting tools, but a commercial kitchen fire suppression system offers additional advantages and protections that make it a far better choice. Benefits include:
- It can operate without human intervention, automatically diffusing a fire and preventing its spread without employee assistance.
- It can be installed in kitchens of almost any size.
- The wet chemical kitchen hood system is waterless, which means it’s safer for your employees and appliances.
- The system quickly detects and diffuses a fire.
- A wet chemical system is extremely eco-friendly and doesn’t contribute to ozone depletion.

Frequently Asked Questions About Commercial Kitchen Fire Suppression Systems
What is a commercial kitchen hood fire suppression system?
The system consists of a hood positioned above equipment that produces heat or fire, ductwork that connects the hood to fans, the exterior exhaust fans, and the fire suppression system.
Do I need a fire suppression system?
Yes, a wet chemical fire system is required by code. Its purpose is to shut off any and all equipment fuel sources while extinguishing any cooking-related fires.
Are all commercial kitchen fire suppression systems the same?
No. Some older fire suppression systems now installed in restaurant cooking areas may not provide adequate fire protection. This is generally due to changes in commercial cooking methods, such as cooking with vegetable oils and using energy-efficient appliances. Dry chemical suppression systems are ineffective against these types of fires — only wet chemical fire suppression systems are.
