AXA’s Commercial Kitchen Fire Safety Service

Of all occupancy types, food and drink premises are the third most likely trade group for large fires*. Risks in kitchens are numerous and not just limited to deep oil frying. Poor management control of the grease build up within extraction systems is also a huge contributor to the spread of fire.

Whilst it is very important to maintain good management of the cooking equipment and extraction ducting, there is always the chance of fire. A large proportion of restaurants worldwide choose to enhance their protection with fire suppression.  

To ensure the complete solution is available with superior suppliers, AXA have created the Commercial Kitchen Fire Safety Service with Swiftclean for kitchen extract fire safety cleaning and ANSUL for fire suppression.
