It’s no secret restaurants have a greater fire risk than other types of businesses. Many restaurant owners are unaware of the heightened potential danger and how significant fire damage can be. According to the National Fire Protection Association, 61% of all restaurant fires originate in the kitchen, and cooking materials were the first item to ignite in nearly half of those fires. Largely in part due to kitchen hood fire suppression systems the majority of commercial cooking fires are contained and do not spread beyond the initial location. Integrating a fire suppression system in your commercial kitchen can mitigate the risks of fire damage and help recover from unforeseen incidents.
These systems tend to get dirty and can degrade quickly so it’s important to have a licensed professional service vent hoods regularly.
