It's much less expensive to prevent kitchen fires than to repair structural damage after a fire. For this reason, many business owners appreciate the security that comes from installing a fire suppression system. Not only are you able to protect your building's occupants, but you are also restricting fire damage to an individual cooking surface.
Wet Chemical fire suppression systems have been designed to protect commercial kitchens and exhaust hoods from the dangers of fire. A self-contained restaurant fire suppression system incorporates discharge nozzles over the appliance and along the entire length of the kitchen hood.
Heat detection devices located behind filters, run the entire length of the hood and activate automatically at a pre-determined temperature. These systems are fully automatic and require no power to operate and protect the hood 24 hours a day.
