AS 3772 pdf download.Pre-engineered fire protection systems for cooking equipment
This Standard sets out requirements for the design, installation commissioning and maintenance of pre-engineered fire protection systems for the protection of unenclosed cooking appliances that produce grease-laden vapours and which may have an open surface of cooking oil or fat. This Standard also applies to the grease removal devices, hood exhaust plenums, exhaust systems, ducts and filters associated with such appliances. General fire safety requirements for kitchens and cooking areas are included. Protection of enclosed ovens, water boilers and similar appliances are excluded from the scope of this Standard. NOTE 1 Requirements for areas protected by sprinklers are given in AS 2118.1. NOTE 2 Requirements for engineered fire protection systems such as carbon dioxide and water mist, are given in other Australian Standards referenced in AS 4158 and AS 6183. NOTE 3 Examples of equipment this Standard covers are — (a) deep fryers; (b) griddles; (c) grillers; (d) range tops; (e) broilers; (f) woks; (g) tilting skillets; (h) salamanders; and (i) brazing pans.
