Fire Ready Hood

The fire ready hood operates both as a functional hood and a fire suppression system. The exhaust fan can either be manually operated with the face-mounted dial, or automatically based on the hood temperature, which is monitored by an onboard controller. If the hood temperature is elevated beyond normal operation, the controller will automatically disable the appliance via the factory-supplied appliance disconnect. An audible alarm and dry contact will be engaged to alert occupants and building alarms of elevated temperatures. If the temperature continues to rise, the agent will be released through the nozzles directed at the appliance and exhaust duct.
