All About Denlar Kitchen Hoods

Bridgeport, CT: Late in 2009, The Bridgeport Housing Authority (BHA) experienced tragedy when an unattended cooking fire grew out of control and took the lives of a mother and three young children. Recently, a fire started under similar circumstances but the result was far less tragic, when housing officials revealed that a significant cooking fire was extinguished by a ‘Designer’ Series range hood system provided by DENLAR Fire Protection.

Guardian Fire Protection is happy to announce that we now have a partnership with DENLAR hoods and are installing their product as part of our kitchen fire suppression installation offering. They are designed for residential type oven/ranges that can be in residential or commercial settings such as:

  • Daycares
  • Churches
  • Schools
  • Community centers
  • Apartments
  • Condos
  • Senior living facilities

The DENLAR hood serves as an exhaust fan like you’d typically see in a home, with an added bonus: it has a built-in fire suppression system that dispenses fire extinguishing agent and simultaneously cuts the power (gas or electric) to the appliance.

If we learned anything from that devastating fire in 2009, it was that kitchen fire safety is not to be taken lightly. The Housing Authority in Bridgeport identified the DENLAR hood system as the most intelligent and cost-effective solution for their needs and are in the midst of upgrading each individual residence to this new level of kitchen range-top fire protection. By taking this proactive step to stop cooking fires, The Bridgeport Housing Authority has created a safer environment for its residents while also protecting the value of its state-owned facility.

The DENLAR hood system is among the most effective ways to protect your facility against potentially damaging kitchen fires. If you’re ready to upgrade your kitchen’s fire protection by installing a DENLAR kitchen hood system in Maryland, Virginia or Washington, DC, call Guardian Fire Protection today.
