PAFSS Kitchen Guard


Residential Kitchen Pneumatically Actuated Fire Suppression System

Why Choose PAFSS KitchenGuard Installers


The Problem

Cooking food by deep-frying can be dangerous if something goes wrong. Around 16,000 domestic fires start every year when food is being deep fried. ROSPA statistics ( report around 3000 people a year are being injured. Multi-user kitchen environments, such as student accommodation, HMO’s, blocks of flats or other multi-occupancy buildings can present a particular problem with regard to the risk of fire in their kitchens. Unattended or forgotten cooking activities can often be the most common way that these fires start.

The PAFSS Solution

PAFSS KitchenGuard Mini is a fully automatic fire suppression system which uses much of the same technology and performance characteristics as a fully approved commercial kitchen suppression system that complies with LPCB standard LPS 1223. Based on simple principles and reliable functionality, requiring no electrical power for activation, PAFSS KitchenGuard Mini is a clear and logical choice.

System Operation

PAFSS KitchenGuard mini is a 2 litre wet chemical indirect fire suppression system. It utilises a linear, pressurised detection tube which is positioned under or within the extract hood and which is connected to a cylinder containing the wet chemical extinguishing agent.
