Arlington, VA, is one of the hotspots of Virginia for business, culture, and more, recognized as “the best place to live in America” by Niche. Arlington, just outside of Washington, D.C., is a place where people can be proud to live for many reasons. As food is a significant component of any city, commercial kitchen safety is also a priority. Fireline Corporation provides kitchen suppression services in Arlington, VA, that every commercial kitchen will want to have.
The Importance of Kitchen Suppression Services
Commercial kitchens are notorious for having certain hazards. In most cases, the accidents are slips and falls, but fire is another very present hazard that kitchen staff must manage at all times. A kitchen fire can spread quickly and wipe out a business within minutes. As commercial kitchens use multiple commercial-grade appliances such as ranges, fryers, ice makers, and much more, prevention systems are necessary should a fire ever break out.
How Kitchen Suppression Systems Work
Kitchen suppression systems are a series of pipes that connect to the kitchen’s gas line and spray chemicals specifically for commercial kitchen fires. If the fire’s fuel source is oil or grease, you do not want to put it out with water. In these cases, certain chemicals are necessary to extinguish the flames. That’s where kitchen suppression systems come in.
If the system detects a fire, it will shut off the appliance’s power (the gas line), turn on the exhaust hood, and release its chemical spray. The kitchen suppression system’s nozzles are located just above any appliance that might catch fire.
A manual pull station may be included in the system’s design to prevent a delayed reaction due to syncing with the fire sprinkler or suppression system, which could activate only when the flames spread more.
