Tyco Fire Protection Products Highlights Importance of Kitchen Safety at Hotelympia 2014

Tyco Fire Protection Products continues to take the lead in commercial kitchen and restaurant fire safety at Hotelympia, demonstrating its ANSUL R-102 Restaurant Fire Suppression System. Tyco will highlight the importance of robust fire suppression solutions to protect lives, safeguard investments and brand reputation, as well as ensuring business continuity.

Visitors to the diner-style stand will learn more about the ANSUL R-102 Restaurant Fire Suppression System. A pre-engineered, cartridge operated system, ANSUL R-102 uses ANSULEX a Iow pH wet chemical agent which quickly knocks down flames and cools hot surfaces, while generating a tough vapour securing blanket that helps prevent re-flash.

The advantage of the system lies in its ability to quickly detect and extinguish grease and cooking oil fires whether it starts from an appliance, in the plenum or duct, protecting lives and preventing damage. Since the introduction of the R-102 Restaurant Fire Suppression System in 1982, it continues to be the number one fire protection solution for the global food service industry, protecting 90% of the world’s top 200 restaurant chains.

To ensure constant reliability of the ANSUL R-102 Restaurant Fire Suppression System, Ansul products are installed and serviced by a network of factory trained and audited distributors the world over, the largest service network in the industry.
Chris Prideaux, UK Business Development Manager, Ansul Restaurant Fire Suppression Systems, Tyco Fire Protection Products, comments, “We’re delighted to be demonstrating our effective fire suppression solutions at Hotelympia for a second year running. In the UK alone there are 24,000 commercial fires every year, of which 6,000 are cooking related. The majority of these are caused by a griddle oil fire and approx. 80% of these restaurants or hotels either never re-open or go out of business within 18-months. It’s therefore vital to put in place an effective fire suppression solution to protect against these risks. We look forward to speaking with visitors about how our solutions can help them going forward.”

ANSUL R-102 is certified to meet globally accepted standards across all different appliances for UL300 and LPS1223 approvals to deliver the highest levels of safety. For more information, visit Tyco Fire Protection Products at stand 1110 at Hotelympia, London.
