Restaurant Fire Suppression History
The initial fire suppression system we use today was invented in the 1960s as a means to automatically exterminate fires that broke out in industrial kitchens. Initially, these commercial systems took advantage of the same dry chemicals as regular fire extinguishers. Those chemicals are good at suppressing fires kindled by wood, paper, and textiles. Because the most of commercial restaurant fires involved cooking oils, engineers had to develop appropriate chemicals to use in fire suppression systems for these facilities.
Current fire suppression equipment dispenses wet chemical extinguishing agents, which are designed to create a soapy layer above the oil surfaces and equipment that helps cool off the temperature and cuts off the oxygen.
These chemicals can come in two forms; either premixed into one tank, or they can be dispensed from different containers of water and chemical concentrate and form the extinguishing agent when released.
A significant advantage that wet chemicals have over dry systems is that they’re excellent at preventing kitchen oils from reigniting after they have been extinguished.
Kitchen Fire Suppression Design, Installation, and Replacement
The proper way to extinguish a kitchen fire is to eliminate the fuel source and smother the flames, cutting out the oxygen. Your restaurant fire suppression system is designed to do just that.

Emissions from restaurant cooking equipment are often polluted with vaporized grease and other fuels that could kindle a fire or make the flames spread quicker. That’s why routine inspections and maintenance are critical for a safe work environment.
Adam’s Fire Protection offers routine services necessary to keep your restaurant fire supression system in optimal condition and code-compliant. Don’t let critical inspections and maintenance slip your mind, or your commercial kitchen could become a fire disaster just waiting to happen.
