When it comes to commercial fires that occur throughout the year, there are almost always some that occur within a commercial kitchen setting. Whether the commercial kitchen is within a hotel or a separate restaurant, a lack of fire protection can make it easy for kitchen fires to begin. A commercial kitchen can be a volatile area because of the amount of grease and vapors in one small area. If there is a buildup, fires can easily occur.
ANSUL products have been used to protect more commercial kitchens than any other fire suppression brand. One of their more well-known and used products is the R-102 Restaurant Fire Suppression System. The system uses a design that is flexible along with the effective ANSULEX Low pH Liquid Agent. The agent effectively pushes down open flames while also cooling down the heated surfaces. It also creates a vapor-like blanket that helps to prevent re-flash in the kitchen.
This type of suppression system is created to protect areas in the kitchen that are associated with the equipment related to ventilation. These areas include filters, ducts, hoods, and plenums in the commercial kitchen. It is considered to be friendly for cooking equipment and can be purchased in two different designs: Overlapping and Appliance-Specific. The system is normally found in the following types of commercial kitchens:
- Mobile Food Trucks
- Catering Facilities
- Convenience Stores
Some of the features that come with the R-102 Restaurant Fire Suppression System include the following:
- Five-year warranty
- Aesthetically appealing
