UL300 Restaurant Fire Suppression Systems
Restaurant / UL300 Suppression Systems service
The kitchen is one of the essential parts of a restaurant, and each one is distinguished by the good food and the diversity of dishes it offers, therefore maintaining safety is a very important component. It is common that fires occur in kitchens due to high temperatures, the different ingredients used to make dishes and the fuel used to cook food.
The main causes of fires in kitchens are the accumulation of fats in the equipment and the lack of knowledge about fire management by the kitchen operators. For decades, tests have been conducted looking for effective systems for rapid fire arrest, and there are specific tests that determine if they are effective.
In today’s commercial kitchens, the higher temperatures of cooking oils, the high performance and the low cooling capacity of appliances such as fryers are factors that made fire suppression system a more challenging activity today than ever before it was in the past.
The fire suppression system for restaurants is a pre designed system, with liquid chemical agent, operated by the cartridge and regulated pressure, with an agent circulation network by fixed nozzles. It is registered by Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL/ULC).
Kitchen suppression systems use advanced extinguishing agents to smother the flames and eliminate vapors quickly. The cooling of the high-performance appliances after suffocating the first flames is of vital importance to avoid the reactivation of the fire and minimize the interruption of the business.
The system is configurable for automatic detection and takes action, in addition to remote manual triggering. Supplementary equipment is accessible for connection to the fire alarm box of the building, closing, and electrical connection, and mechanical or electrical devices to shut off the gas supply.
Suppression systems for kitchen Focus on:
- Restaurants of all kinds
- Fast food chains
- Culinary schools
- Sports complexes and stadiums
- Social clubs
The system must be installed and maintained by authorized and duly trained experts.
The Omega kitchen protection system is composed of chemical extinguisher cylinders, thermal sensors and a manual activation button.
This equipment, when exceeding the temperature programmed in the system, automatically breaks the thermal sensors and discharges the extinguishing components in each cooking appliance, in the grease ducts, in the filters and immediately produces a closing of the valve. The objective of this system is to extinguish the flame and lower the temperature in the kitchen.
At Omega Fire Protection we have a team of specialist engineers who develop each project of Restaurant/UL300 Suppression Systems with a unique design that adjusts to the specific needs of each client, thus guaranteeing the correct functioning and efficiency of the system in general.
