Kitchen Suppression Systems
Because it is a statistical fact that there are a lot of fires in commercial cooking facilities, Ansul Systems have changed to protect the modern kitchen. Having a good fire protection system in a restaurant or institutional cooking facility is more important than ever before.
More cooking is done with vegetable oil instead of animal fats. Vegetable oils have a much higher autoignition temperature.
Fryers are now made with improved insulation that slows the cooling rate, but which also increases the risk of a re-flash in the event of fire.
The links melt during a fire, causing cartridge to fire propelling gas into the liquid agent tank.
The distribution piping system carrys the agent to nozzles located above the cooking appliances, in the plenum above the filters, and in the duct above the plenum.
When updating your kitchen system to the latest technology, be sure and change your fire extinguishers, too. Fire extinguishers designed specifically for kitchens are now available. Please note that changes by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) #10 now require this special "K Class" hand portable fire extinguisher in cooking areas.

Emergency Lighting Inspection And Repair
Are you sure your emergency lighting is adequate ?
Are you sure your units will work during a power failure ?
Are you sure they are being properly maintained ?
Exit lights and emergency lighting provides lighting in corridors,
stairwells,ramps, escalators, aisles, and exit passageways.
During power outages if your emergency lights fail to operate properly,
the building occupants can become disoriented.
Routine maintenance of emergency lights and emergency
lighting is frequently overlooked until an emergency occurs,
and then its too late.
Regular maintenance is required by
NFPA Standard No. 101, chapter 31, section 1.3.7.
