The basic function of a Kitchen Fire Suppression System is to automatically detect and extinguish a fire. The wet chemical distribution technique, along with dual, independent activation capability, automatic fusible link or manual release provides efficient, reliable protection the moment a fire is detected. In addition to a Kitchen Fire Suppression System, a portable pressurized K-Class extinguisher must also be present. Expanded, ancillary capability provides automatic shutdown for gas equipment, propane, and electrical system shutdown as well.
The installation, Inspection/Verification of Kitchen/Restaurant Fire Suppression systems is covered by various NFPA standards such as NFPA-17, The Standard for Dry Chemical Extinguishing Systems; NFPA-17A, Standard for Wet Chemical Extinguishing Systems and
NFPA-96, The Standard for Ventilation Control and Fire Protection of Commercial Cooking Operations. Commercial cooking areas, ranging from fast-food restaurants to institutional kitchens, cannot afford an interruption in operation caused by a fire. Insurance statistics prove that if a restaurant or commercial kitchen experiences a fire event, runs the risk of never reopening; and those that do open, do so at a lost time and revenue due to injury claims, equipment replacement and higher insurance premiums.
Commercial kitchens contain all the three elements needed to complete the fire triangle; fire can occur on cooking surfaces and in hard-to-reach areas like hoods and plenums. Given these circumstances, the lack of a sound Fire Protection Strategy is a luxury a business can ill afford.

A Restaurant Fire Suppression System may seem as if it is fully operational.
