Fire protection for commercial kitchens

Tyco Fire Protection Products, fire protection

Tyco Fire Protection Products claims that its Ansul R102 fire-suppression system protects more food-service kitchens than any other brand. This pre-engineered, wet-chemical, cartridge-operated system has been tested in worst-case scenarios, with minimum and maximum piping restraints and minimum and maximum temperature limitations. The system has been tested under these strict conditions and is certified to meet UL300 and LPS1223 approvals.

The advantage of this fire-suppression system lies in its ability to quickly detect and extinguish — whether it starts from an appliance, a plenum or a duct. The Ansulex liquid fire suppressant extinguishes grease and cooking-oil fires and rapidly knocks down flames and cools hot surfaces whilst generating a robust, vapour-securing blanket that helps prevent reflash. The Ansulex agent is easy to clean up and can usually be cleaned from appliances and kitchen areas in two to four hours.
