Cannon Fire Protection Awarded New BAFE SP206 Scheme Certificate

Cannon Fire Protection Awarded New BAFE SP206 Scheme Certificate

Cannon Fire Protection Awarded New BAFE SP206 Scheme Certificate

We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded the new BAFE (British Approvals for Fire Equipment) scheme certificate for kitchen fire suppression systems.

The new scheme (SP206) was originally set up in 2018 by BAFE as a means of verifying the competency of companies who install and maintain commercial kitchen fire suppression systems.

The scheme took almost two years to develop with the support of insurers, equipment manufacturers and trade associations from the fire and catering industries.

Fire industry/insurance data reveals food and drink related fires are statistically the third most likely cause of large fires, also accounting for nearly 10% of all large loss fires. Fires involving restaurants and cafes represent some 42% of all fires within the food and drink sector put together.

BAFE’s new scheme has been developed to provide end users of kitchen equipment with the confidence and peace of mind that their kitchen fire suppression systems have been installed and/or maintained by a provider who has been independently assessed for their competency. The certification scheme covers the design, installation, commissioning, recharge and maintenance of kitchen fire suppression or protection systems.

The BAFE Kitchen Fire Protection Systems Scheme (SP206) observes best practice including LPS 1223 (fixed fire extinguishing systems for catering equipment) and the UL 300 (Fire Testing of Fire Extinguishing Systems for Protection of Commercial Cooking Equipment) Approval Standards.

BSI, who carried out the surveillance audit on behalf of BAFE, went through all our processes for installation and maintenance from quotation to final commissioning and all stages in between. They also did a full audit of our quality management system.

Nicola Roberts, Operations Director commented:

“Achieving this accreditation continues to demonstrate that as a business we are committed to third party accredited schemes providing a focus on delivering the best possible service to our customers through quality products and procedures.”

We are now one of seven companies in the UK who have been awarded this certification.
