Why Install a Kitchen Fire Suppression System?



It is not uncommon for kitchen employees to leave the area and perform other tasks, whilst the fryers warm up. Fires can and do occur when fryers are left unattended, in this event a Amerex Restaurant Fire Suppression System installed by FTS Fire and Security will discharge either automatically in response to fire in the cooking appliance or it can be activated manually helping save lives and costly kitchen equipment in the process.

Which Kitchen Fire Suppression System do FTS use?

At FTS Fire and Security ltd we use Amerex Fire Protection, Restaurant Fire S Systems which are self-contained and therefore no water supply is needed.

The Amerex (KP) and Zone Defense (ZD) are pre-engineered, wet chemical, stored-pressure type systems with a fixed nozzle agent distribution network. This type of fire suppression system is listed by Underwriters Laboratories, Inc., (UL) and tested to Standard UL 300 and is also approved by LPCB (LPS1223).

The combination of the Amerex KP and ZD kitchen fire suppression sytem and an Amerex Model 260 wet chemical extinguisher provide restaurants with a ONE-TWO attack against the threat of business loss due to cooking operation fires.
