You need to make sure your kitchen has everything necessary in it to limit fire risks - and there are many ways you can do this! A good way is by making sure there are no traces of grease because grease combusts easily; so when you clean your system, make sure you’re using TR19® Grease. Your system should also be cleaned at least once a year, depending on how much it’s used.

Another very important passive fire prevention measure is the regular testing, cleaning and maintenance of fire dampers. These are metal louvres that can open and close and are installed across the ductwork to form a temporary barrier when closed but allow the free flow of air when open. You may not even be aware that your ventilation system has fire dampers, but they fulfil a very important function, so you must be sure that they are in working order.
In the event of a fire travelling through ductwork, the fire damper must close, to restrict the oxygen supply to the fire and create a barrier that slows the spread of the fire. This buys valuable time in which to safely evacuate shoppers, especially the more vulnerable and less mobile centre visitors.
There are different types of fire dampers; some are spring operated, some have fuse-links and there are other designs that are remotely operated. All types must be regularly tested, using a method known as drop testing, cleaned and maintained. According to BS 9999 guidance updated in early 2017, all fire dampers must now be tested at no more than twelve-month intervals.
We can help you locate your fire dampers, create access to inaccessible fire dampers then drop test, clean and maintain them for compliance. More information can be found on our fire dampers page.
Laundry extract systems should be included in every fire risk assessment, according to Regulation Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. Cleaning these usually involves inspecting and cleaning the ducts which might make it appear that you're negligent of your safety. If you don't clean these out, you might put yourself at an increased risk for fires or cause your insurance company to take issue with you.
