SCDF has noticed an increasing trend in fires involving kitchen exhaust duct (KED) over the past few years. This poses fire safety risk to adjacent property(s) and the occupants.

Fire rated ductwork can be key to preventing unforeseen fire spread ignited from your kitchen, throughout your building. The build-up of effluents such as grease and grime within the ducting of a Kitchen Exhaust & Ventilation System, coupled with high temperatures, can self-ignite and cause a fire in the ducting itself. When this happens, it is especially important that the fire does not break out of the ducting into adjacent property(s) and service risers, and that radiant heat is minimised to prevent ignition of a second fire outside the duck.

A reliable fire rated ductwork should have these abilities:

Stability – the ability to resist collapse when exposed to fire conditions

Integrity – the ability to resist penetration from, or the escape of, flames, smoke or sparks

Insulation – the ability to prevent radiative spread of fire

To ensure the safety of your business and employees, this protection is definitely essential.
