Kitchen Fire Equipment

The biggest potential fire risk in kitchen environments is fires that involve cooking oils. We stock wet chemical (f-class) fire extinguishers which are the only fire extinguishers that are specifically designed to combat cooking oil fires. Our 2ltr and 6ltr wet chemical fire extinguishers are also safe for inadvertent use on live electrical equipment up to 1,000 volts at a distance of 1 metre increasing safety for the user.

Kitchen Fire Extinguisher Information

Anything else? If you don’t have a kitchen fire that involves cooking oils, then dry powder fire extinguishers are an excellent alternative as they offer excellent fire fighting capabilities. The only disadvantage with a dry powder fire extinguisher is that it does leave behind a residue.

You will also want to consider using fire blankets. Fire blankets are ideal to be used against fires involving oils and fats and they are lightweight and easy to use. It is not generally recommended to use fire blankets against catering deep fat fryers. You may also wish to consider placing fire extinguishers on our rotationally moulded fire stands as these can be wiped clean.

For the home kitchen:
Consider a compact 2ltr wet chemical or 2kg dry powder fire extinguisher. Both are lightweight and easy to use and store. You may also wish to include a fire blanket.

For the industrial kitchen:
Use a 6ltr wet chemical fire extinguisher for cooking sources involving oils and fats and dry powder fire extinguishers elsewhere. Also include fire blankets.

A first aid kits is always useful for any kitchen environment and we offer a number of fire safety kits deisgned specifically for kitchens.
