We are an approved supplier of the Ansul R102 Kitchen Fire Suppression System.
ANSUL products protect more food service kitchens from fire than any other brand. The R102 Fire Suppression System incorporates a flexible design with an extremely effective ANSULEX Low pH Liquid Agent. ANSULEX quickly knocks down flames and cools hot surfaces, while generating a tough vapor securing blanket that helps prevent re-flash.
The R102 system is designed to protect areas associated with ventilating equipment, including hoods, ducts, plenums, and filters. It also protects auxiliary grease extraction equipment and cooking equipment such as various types of fryers, griddles, range tops, broilers, char-broilers and woks. The system is ideally suited for commercial kitchens in fast food chains, retail food courts, diners, convenience stores, catering facilities, mobile food trucks, hotels and casinos, stadiums, schools, hospitals and more.
The R102 system is cooking equipment friendly and offered in two designs: Appliance-Specific and Overlapping. The appliance-specific design aims the nozzles at the specific hazard areas of each appliance. With the overlapping design, the nozzles are arranged to overlap and provide a “fire-free zone” throughout a group of appliances.
Ansul R102 Suppression systems are to be serviced on a bi-annual basis.
When an Ansul R102 Suppression system is installed, it will immediately offer protection to staff, premises & equipment. After 6 months, the bi-annual service will be required. This ensures you are meeting the system requirements and, subsequently, ensures you are conforming to your insurance providers requirements.
The service comprises of a full inspection and test to ensure it still has the capability to fire. In addition to ensuring the system will fire, the engineer will also look at whether the system is still covering the appropriate risks. Upon completion of the service, a report will be produced specifying whether the system is appropriate for the risks or whether further works are required.
10 year tests are a legal requirement of the system. Once the system reaches 10 years old, it must be given an overhaul. This is a specific requirement to comply with British standards. If this requirement is not satisfied, the system may not work when required to do so or, even worse, cause an injury to someone when the system is fired.
