MCL Fire Designs and Installs Two Options for Flexible Protection
1. The appliance-specific design is one of the two protection options available with the R-102 restaurant fire suppression system. The most efficient fire protection is accomplished
when nozzles are selected and aimed at specific hazard areas on each appliance. This method typically provides the most economical use of liquid agent, reducing the size or quantity of storage tanks and associated hardware.
2. Overlapping appliance protection is flexible and simple. Nozzles are arranged in a straight line, providing overlapping agent discharge patterns where appliances can be protected, even if they are replaced or rearranged under the hood
