Kitchen Hood Extinguishing Systems

Open flames, red-hot cooking surfaces, and a heavily grease-laden environment combine to make the modern commercial kitchen a potentially dangerous fire hazard.

Kitchen fires spread quickly and have proven to be very difficult to extinguish, making them the leading cause of structural fire damage.

Protecting the modern commercial kitchen from the ever-present danger of cooking oil and grease fires is the reason we developed The Buckeye Kitchen Mister™ System.

Utilizing state of the art misting technology, the Kitchen Mister System has proven to be the most effective fixed kitchen fire extinguishing system ever developed, extinguishing potentially deadly kitchen fires fast, before they can spread.

That’s why the Kitchen Mister System is quickly becoming the preferred choice of fire protection professionals throughout the world.

System Cylinders
The models BFR-5, BFR-10, BFR-15 and BFR-20 cylinders are designated by flow point capacity (so the BFR-5 supports five (5) flow points) instead of the amount of agent they hold. Recharge is available in 5 and 10 flow point containers so there’s never a chance of error.

The Kitchen Mister Shielded Cable
Interface is used to connect Buckeye Shielded Cable to any standard 1/2 inch conduit connection device. The use of Buckeye Shielded Cable instead of conduit and corner pulleys for connecting the gas valve, remote pull station, and fusible link line to the Systems Releasing Module reduces installation time by up to 50%.
