If you operate a facility that includes a kitchen, such as a hospital, a retirement home, a college campus, or a hotel, you know that fire is a continual hazard. Grease fires tend to flare quickly in kitchens and can cause extremely painful burns to workers, damage to the building and equipment, and, in extreme cases, death.
Make sure that your employees and clients are fully protected with the latest in kitchen fire suppression systems. These complex systems use chemicals to extinguish the fire, while at the same time cutting the heat source off. This technology helps to remove some of the danger from the kitchen workplace and keeps your facility running smoothly.
Servicing, maintenance, and upgrading of these systems should be conducted only by experienced fire safety technicians. Call a company that specializes in fire safety and knows about kitchen fire suppression systems to ensure that your system is working at maximum efficiency.
Working in a commercial kitchen can be a fast-paced, high-pressure job. When hundreds of orders are moving out of the kitchen during peak hours, errors can be made and accidents can happen. That’s why it’s important that employees follow rules regarding knives and slicing machinery, appliances, spills, and other dangers. But one danger that’s often beyond the control of the kitchen worker is that of the flash fire, or grease fire.
Kitchen Fire Suppression Systems
Because burns from grease fires can be devastating, it’s important that kitchens serving large volumes of food employ kitchen fire suppression systems. These automated systems detect grease fires and shut down the heat source while at the same time applying chemical to the flaming oil.
New standards for these systems mean that yours may be eligible for an upgrade. Call a local company specializing in fire safety to find out more about new fire suppression system standards.
