The associated fire risks develop as grease laden air is directly drawn from those areas above ovens, fryers and grills where the cooking process is taking place, via an extract canopy, ductwork system and discharged to atmosphere.
As a result, the build-up of grease within the kitchen extract ventilation system is highly combustible and acts as a potential ignition source. All it takes is a small fire from a pan or cooker to be drawn into the system where flames and heat can very quickly spread through a building.
