What's it going to cost? 

This will depend on the size of your cookline . Ansul systems have 1 - 6 tanks usually (some can be bigger.) As a guideline allow £3,000 - £5,000.

How long will it take?

We can usually install an Ansul system in 6 - 12 hours from start to finish

Can this be done overnight?       Yes, in fact we prefer this as we have freedom to install unhindered. We also do not charge any extra for overnight work

What does it do?

In a nutshell the Ansul system will detect an appliance fire and extinguish it as well as fire inside the canopy and ducting.

The Ansul R102 does not require a water supply nor an electricity supply. The system is fully self contained giving protection 24/7

Caterfire are fully authorised installers of the Ansul R102 kitchen fire suppression system. Its important to ensure that any installer is an authorised installer otherwise your Ansul warranty will be void and you may encounter insurance difficulties.

The Ansul system installation process involves securing the stainless steel cabinets that house the tanks to the wall high near the ceiling usually adjacent to the end of canopy. the system does not require a power supply or water supply as it is self contained.

Pipe work in stainless steel will be run from the cabinets to the canopy and where possible will be hidden above the ceiling. This supply pipe will branch out to supply nozzles over the appliances as well as in the plenum and ducts. A detection line will also be run through EMT (galvanised conduit) through a series of pulley elbows through to the detectors which are sited over ducts and appliances. This detection line is a high tensile steel cable running the full length of the canopy Also in EMT a line will be run to a pull station that will be fixed to the wall  on a major escape route. After installation full simulated firing tests are carried out and the system is fully commissioned. Finally a certificate to UL300 , LPS 1223, and EN 16282-7 will be issued. Installations are usually completed in one day (night) although larger systems can take longer.
