Commercial kitchens are a high-risk fire location because they frequently use open flames, high-temperature equipment, and combustible materials. To effectively prevent fires, here are some suggestions.

1. Safe and reasonable kitchen ventilation system: Properly design and layout the hood, hood filter, duct system, etc., and use a baffle grease filter with flame retardant function to capture more debris and reduce the amount of exhaust gas stuck in the kitchen. The amount of grease inside the cover forms the first line of defense for kitchen safety.

2. Clean the flue and oil fume purification equipment regularly: Kitchen oil fume is one of the main causes of fires. Regular cleaning of flues and fume purifiers can reduce grease buildup and reduce the risk of fires.

3. Use fire-resistant building materials and finishes: Commercial kitchen walls, ceilings, and floors should use fire-resistant building materials and finishes to reduce the possibility of fire spread.

4. Train employees: All employees should receive appropriate fire prevention training, including how to properly use and maintain kitchen equipment, how to deal with oil fumes and fire escapes, etc.

5. Follow proper food cooking and stir-frying procedures: Proper cooking and stir-frying procedures reduce the risk of fire by reducing the risk of scorching food and grease.

6. Regular inspection and maintenance of kitchen equipment: Cooking equipment in commercial kitchens should be inspected and maintained regularly to ensure proper operation and reduce the risk of fire.

7. Regularly check electrical equipment and wiring: Electrical equipment and wiring in commercial kitchens should be checked regularly to ensure there is no damage or overloading.

8. Maintain good hygiene and organization: Commercial kitchens should be kept clean and organized to ensure that no flammable materials are scattered or accumulated to reduce the risk of fire.

9. Install and maintain fire alarm systems: Commercial kitchens should install reliable fire alarm systems, and perform regular maintenance and inspections to ensure they are working properly.

10. Conduct regular fire drills: Commercial kitchens should conduct regular fire drills to ensure that employees have the correct fire escape procedures and can respond quickly to fires.
