Grease buildup is a natural consequence of cooking processes in commercial kitchens. Over time, grease particles accumulate on the interior surfaces of exhaust hoods, filters, and ductwork. When these deposits become thick enough, they can become an ignition source, sparking a fire that spreads rapidly through the ventilation system. The presence of open flames, high temperatures, and flammable vapors within the kitchen environment only heightens the potential for disaster. Such fires can quickly escalate, endangering kitchen staff, customers, and the entire building.
The accumulation of grease within kitchen exhaust hoods and ducts can lead to devastating fires, endangering lives, damaging property, and impacting businesses.
In the event of a kitchen exhaust hood fire outbreak, the best case scenario would be fire suppression as soon as it ignites. With the help of WEFIRE® Automatic Fire Suppression System, our system gets activated as soon as heat, flames or even smoke has been detected. The Fire Suppression System will subsequently release a suppression agent that extinguishes the fire.
