In today’s commercial kitchens hotels, restaurants and gastro pubs, higher temperature cooking oils and high efficiency appliances with a slow cooling down mechanisms such as deep-fat fryers have combined to make fire suppression more challenging than in past few years. All the more challenging is the risk clearly identified concerning the deep fat fryers relating to the natural behaviour of fire to spread throughout a building via the kitchen exhaust ductwork, therefore the need to protect people and property from fire is crucial.
The answer is simply this,the operator or owner of the property must accept not only their business interruption and the damages due to fire and firefighting but also,the liability towards other tenants, visitors or thirdparties as well as unfavourable reports in the media. Kitchen fires are among the most dangerous and frightening fires, statistics show that many restaurants never reopen after a major fire. Deep Fat fires are self-igniting and after ignition, the temperature rises dramatically. Deep or shallow Fat fires are fuelled by fat vapours which are highly flammable. That is why they can only be extinguished by isolating oil from the oxygen and reducing the oil temperature.
