What is a Fire Suppression System?
There are lots of ways that you look to protect your business and one of the simplest is to make sure your fire suppression system is working and well-maintained. Fire suppression systems can be activated by a pull station or an automated system that detects when a certain temperature threshold is reached. These suppression systems can quickly turn a potentially disastrous event into a minor setback for your kitchen.
Fire suppression systems release wet chemical extinguishing agent that will quickly put out any fires. Each of the chemicals used in this suppression system is designed to react with grease which then creates a harmless soapy substance that won’t be reignited! Since these fire suppression systems are effective in a short time frame, your big, expensive kitchen equipment is saved and protected from burns and harmful smoke.
Your fire suppression system will also shut of electricity and gas in your kitchen to make sure everything is safe once activated. The quick response time of your system saves you from additional damage that can cause delays in getting your kitchen back on line after an accident!
