It is often a requirement in commercial kitchens to have an extraction hood suppression system. because this is where a fire is most likely to happen.

This then forces the extinguisher medium through the nozzles onto the fire. Normally they need to be checked on a six-monthly basis. Each one needs to be designed according to the open cooking devices below the hood, such as hobs, deep fat fryers and grills.

Class F fire extinguishers are specifically designed for kitchen fires involving cooking oils and fats. They use a special wet chemical agent that reacts with the oil to create a soapy foam, cooling the fire and preventing re-ignition.

While a regular ABC fire extinguisher can be used in the kitchen, it will not be as effective against fat fires. It’s recommended to have a Class F fire extinguisher in the kitchen for better coverage.
