Nobel Fire Systems has fitted its K-Series fire suppression system into the kitchens of Thornton Manor, Cheshire.
The Grade 11 listed Elizabethan manor house is a wedding, conference and events centre and was featured in a recent episode of BBC 1’s ‘Don’t Tell the Bride’.
The estates manager contacted a number of companies as part of the initial process to find a specialist partner to design and install a fire suppression system for the venue’s Music Room kitchen, which provides the majority of food for guests.
The contract was awarded to Nobel Fire Systems following a site survey by its engineers and their response to the brief that demanded practicality and efficiency combined with aesthetics for this project.
Another important part of the brief was the requirement for an overlapping system where the nozzles are arranged to overlap and provide a fire-free zone across a group of appliances.
Following this initial installation, Nobel was invited back to Thornton Manor to install another K-Series system, this time in the ‘Dining Room’ kitchen.
Manufactured in stainless steel to enhance the working life and endurance of the product, all pipework, nozzles, detection and controls have been designed to match the appearance, functionality and strict hygiene requirements of the Thornton Manor kitchens.
The electrical nature of the K-Series system should ensure that all circuits can be monitored for fault conditions.
Ben Parker, commercial director of Nobel Fire Systems commented: “Today, the aesthetics of contemporary physical space in commercial kitchens is becoming an increasingly important consideration for owners and designers. We believe that it’s therefore imperative that we contribute products that deal with the requirement positively and creatively. The Nobel K-Series system does just that.”
