Fire Alarm Safety for Restaurants

Commercial catering installations require special consideration at the design stage. Most fire systems within restaurants act as the nucleus for all other fundamental operations such as: plant, ventilation that are interfaced to the fire alarm system.

The environment within commercial kitchens, unlike others, is subject to the build-up of grease and dust particles. This can severely affect its operation and if not designed correctly can give rise to nuisance activation of the system usually during the busiest and most inconvenient periods.

Good design will overcome much of the above and the beauty of good design is….it doesn’t cost a penny, it comes free as a result of years of experience working in the field and resolving issues caused by some basic errors made by less experienced contractors.
