The kitchen is the heart of any restaurant; it’s where food is made and where the staff comes to work. However, due to the use of fire in ovens and stoves, kitchens are at risk of fires. One way to prevent fires from starting is to install a hood suppression system.
A hood suppression system is installed over the cooking station as well as the gas line that is connected to the cooking station. If the system is triggered by a fire, it will shut off the gas line and put out the existing flames with a water-based fire suppressant. The hood also removes smoke from the kitchen. While water can’t put out a grease fire and a fire extinguisher will ruin your food and produce, a hood suppression system is ideal for putting out kitchen fires.
