Restaurant Fire Suppression Systems
For restaurant owners, their kitchen is the heartbeat of their operation. It's where Fires are more likely to occur in a restaurant than nearly any other kind of business. Employees will have continual exposure to high heat, fires can break out for a variety of reasons.

Therefore, fire suppression system instantly becomes your first line of defense. You just need to know more about it and how it works.
Easy to Use with Manual Options
Restaurant fire suppression systems are generally easy to use. Much like the sprinkler system running through professional buildings, the suppression kicks on when it detects flames and growing heat. Different systems do have different ways of detecting a fire, so be sure to look into this when discussing the installation with a service provider. Once tripped, the two-prong approach kicks in quickly to kill the fuel source while dousing the flames. This keeps potential financial loss to a minimum, with only the food on the cooking surface destroyed.
Manual activation should come as an option. As is the case of fires when a sprinkler system is present, if the designated trigger is not activated, the nozzle system may not turn on until the fire has spread beyond the cooking surface. To prevent this from happening, a manual activation point on the restaurant fire suppression systems allows an operator to turn on suppression, killing the flames quickly.
When is a Fire Suppression System Necessary?
Not all restaurants have a fire suppression system. When is it necessary to have such a system installed? In any commercial kitchen, it does not matter the location, it is a safety precaution. From a football stadium to fast food kitchens and really anywhere else in between, kitchen fires can quickly burn out of control.
