Pre-engineered Kitchen Fire Suppression Systems
Pre-engineered kitchen fire suppression systems protect the hood, duct and cooking appliances located Under the hood.
When a fire starts, the detection network, located in the hood behind the grease filters will automatically detect a fire
by means of temprature rated heat detectors known as fusible links, these links are made in different temperature ratings
pre determined at time of install and by the distance above and type of appliance being protected and are usually in 3 different tempraturerating (360, 450 and 500 degrees) once these links reach thier temprature rating or higher they will release thus releasing chemical throughout the hood, and on the appliances.
Also, a manual pull station can be used to actuate the system and release the chemical over the fire.
As the system is discharged, any gas and/or electric cooking power will be shut-down to the appliances.
Maintenance on kitchen fire suppression systems must be conducted at least semi-annually (every six months) in accordance with Fire Codes and NFPA 17A requirements as well as the manufacturer's listed installation and maintenance manual.
There are several system manufacturers and brands available. All systems operate, generally, in the same manner and
are pre-engineered to specific designs. At Denon Fire Protection we install Range Guard, Kidde, Pyrochem/Protex, Amerex and Buckey.
We also inspect and do semi-annual service on all kitchen fire suppression systems
An important aspect to keep in mind is that each system has a limited amount of liquid chemical.
The system size is not only an important consideration at the time of kitchen design, but is just as important when introducing new appliances to an existing kitchen/hood or moving appliance location. If the size, design and installation are not per the manufacturer's specification and listing, proper fire protection may not be achieved.
Dry Chemical Fire Suppression Systems
Dry Chemical Fire Suppression Systems are normally used for spray booth application
(automotive spray booths, open faced spray booths, local applocations and paint mixing rooms)
A paint booth fire suppression system can save lives and property,
and is an important component of a spray booth system.
The city of calgary and the alberta fire code have mandated the installation of these systems in all spray booth applications and must be installed in your spray booth. A paint booth can be a very hazardous environment. Paint booth fires, though infrequent, can be devastating to your shop, your property and your employees.
Generally, a paint booth fire suppression system includes dry chemical tanks
that are discharged when heat-sensitive fusable links are broken.
(as like the kitchen fire suppression system) In the event of a fire, when any one of the fusable links break,
tensioned cables are released which punctures a C02 or Nitrogen Actuator Cartridge, thus releasing the dry chemical fire retardant through nozzles positioned throughout the paint booth, Plenums and the duct. Also like the kitchen fire suppression systems a manual remote pull station will be located either at the personnel entrance to the spray booth or the closest exit of the building.
Allowing a user to trigger the system from outside the booth.
Upon Actuation in some cases the system will shut down the fan before releasing the agent to the fire, also and external bell will be activated to alert any workers in the building that the system as activated.
The control panels that are included with all booths can be interlocked to the fire systems main control unit to comply with varying local requirements. As part of the paint booth fire suppression system, the authority having jurisdiction may require the use of Door Limit Switches and or an Air Solenoid shut off Valve. When these parts are wired in series through the control panel, the circuit will shut off airflow through the air solenoid valve when the fan is not running. With this system installed, a painter can not spray without the booth exhaust fan running.
