ANSUL Kitchen Fire Suppression Systems
What we do
Kitchen fire suppression is a fixed automatic fire extinguishing system designed to protect equipment, life and property. Industrial kitchens are a major source of fires with deep-fat fryers, high temperature cooking oils and slow cooking appliances. Kitchen fire suppression systems counteract that risk by quickly detecting and suppressing the fire, therefore limiting the damage caused.

Yes, in the UK, it is a legal requirement for commercial kitchens to have a kitchen suppression system installed. Kitchen suppression systems are also commonly referred to as fire suppression systems or fire extinguishing systems.
The requirement for kitchen suppression systems is set out in the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, which is the primary piece of fire safety legislation in the UK. The Order places a legal duty on the “responsible person” for a commercial premises to take reasonable steps to reduce the risk of fire and to ensure the safety of people on the premises.
A kitchen suppression system is an essential component of a commercial kitchen’s fire safety measures. It is designed to quickly detect and extinguish fires that may start in cooking appliances such as deep fat fryers, griddles, and range hoods. This can help to prevent the spread of fire and minimise damage to the kitchen and surrounding areas.
In addition to the legal requirement for kitchen suppression systems, insurance companies may also require commercial kitchens to have a suppression system installed as a condition of coverage.
Kitchen suppression systems need to be serviced and maintained on a regular basis to ensure their continued effectiveness in the event of a fire. The frequency of servicing will depend on the specific system and the manufacturer’s recommendations, as well as local regulations and standards. However, as a rule, kitchen suppression systems should be serviced at least twice a year.
During a kitchen suppression system service, a qualified technician will inspect the system and its components, test its functionality, and replace any worn or damaged parts. The technician will also ensure that the system is still appropriate for the specific hazards and cooking processes in the kitchen.
In addition to the annual service, it is important to have the system inspected and tested after any changes or modifications to the kitchen, such as the addition of new appliances or a remodel. This will help to ensure that the system is still suitable for the new hazards and cooking processes in the kitchen.
Regular servicing and maintenance of kitchen suppression systems are critical to their effectiveness in the event of a fire. Failure to properly maintain the system can lead to reduced performance and potentially catastrophic consequences in the event of a fire.
