Nobel Fire Systems has designed and installed commercial kitchen fire suppression systems in two properties owned by independent hotel group Dhillon.
The company fitted its flagship ‘K-Series’ system at both The Olde Bell near Slough and Stoke Place in Stoke Poges, Buckinghamshire.
Additionally, Nobel put the K-Series into The Olde Bell’s ‘Malthouse’ kitchen, which is a separate catering facility that serves the conference area at the hotel, as well as a satellite kitchen at Stoke Place.
The project also involved the installation of gas emergency stop valves in the main kitchens at both hotels in order to fully conform to current gas regulations.
In a swipe at its rivals, Nobel said that “unlike the majority of other fire suppression systems, K-Series requires no ugly pipework that needs to be boxed in, nor does it display cheap looking copper or brass plated nozzles that protrude through the kitchen’s vented ceiling.”
Nobel counts Jamie Oliver, Nando’s, Rick Stein, the Sir Christopher Wren Hotel, Boodle’s and the Courthouse Hotel as customers of the ‘K-Series’.
Ben Parker, commercial director of Nobel, says the company’s services range from risk-based analysis, consultation and design, through to final installation.
“We all know that in the catering industry none of us can afford to be complacent when it comes to fire risk and safety issues because of the potentially devastating consequences,” he said.
