Kitchen Fire Suppression Systems

The heart of every restaurant or hotel is the kitchen, a major fire in this area is not only life-threatening, but can be a threat to the future of a business. With today’s high temperature cooking oils and the ever-increasing demands on cooking equipment, the threat of fire is greater than ever before. A Kitchen Fire Suppression System is an essential investment to insure your business against the threat of fire.

Kitchen Fire Gas Suppression in a commercial kitchen
The threat of fire in commercial kitchens and food service facilities is constant.

Grease build-up in the exhaust hood is the cause of many kitchen fires and can be extremely hard to extinguish using traditional methods due to accessibility problems. Wet chemical systems automatically detect and suppress a kitchen exhaust hood fire, whether it starts in one of the appliances or in the exhaust hood itself. The system can provide shutdown of gas supply to kitchen and signal to main fire panel if required.

Kitchen suppression systems are exposed to extremely harsh conditions and therefore require regular routine maintenance to keep them in fire ready condition. Australian Standard AS 3772 requires systems to be maintained to manufacturers guidelines. Most systems require routine maintenance at 6 monthly intervals. Ensure your system gets maintained by accredited technicians. Torvac Solutions can provide competitively priced servicing for all brands of kitchen suppression systems. We can arrange servicing to minimize or eliminate kitchen downtime.
