Extinguishers for Commercial Kitchens

Restaurant fire suppression systems will not suppress fryer fires properly if ABC-rated fire extinguishers are used before or during the activation of kitchen suppression systems.

ABC-rated extinguishers can have a detrimental effect on the suppression of oil and grease fires in commercial kitchens. Although this fact has been known for decades, ABC-rated fire extinguishers continue to be used in commercial kitchens.

These extinguishers should be replaced with Class K portable fire extinguishers.
