TR19 Compliance: Elevating Kitchen Safety Standards

In the fast-paced world of professional kitchen management, Grease Gone is synonymous with excellence, particularly in our adherence to TR19 standards established by the Building Engineering Services Association (BESA). TR19 is not merely a set of guidelines; it’s the gold standard for kitchen extraction and duct cleaning, essential for ensuring fire safety and optimal air quality.

Access and Inspection Excellence: Our commitment to TR19 compliance starts with proper access to ductwork. Acknowledging the unique designs of different kitchens, we meticulously fit and maintain access panels in line with TR19 standards. These panels, harmoniously integrated with your ductwork, are key to effective maintenance and safety.

Rigorous Cleaning Processes: We embrace a thorough cleaning protocol that aligns seamlessly with the TR19 framework. From manual wiping to employing industry-approved chemicals, our tactics are designed to address every level of grease accumulation. Mechanical brushing, a vital part of our arsenal, ensures a deep clean, adhering to TR19’s stringent guidelines.

Tailored Maintenance and Inspection Schedules: Understanding the varied demands of diverse kitchen operations, we provide bespoke cleaning and inspection schedules that surpass TR19 recommendations. This approach guarantees that your kitchen remains safe, efficient, and compliant.

Detailed Post-Cleaning Verification: Post-cleaning, we offer an exhaustive verification report. This includes detailed system descriptions, measurements before and after cleaning, photographic documentation, and a schematic outlining testing and access points. This level of detail ensures complete transparency and provides a clear record of your adherence to TR19 standards.

Key Areas Covered by TR19 cleaning in Commercial Kitchens:

Extraction Systems: These systems play a crucial role in removing smoke, heat, and odours from the cooking area. TR19 cleaning ensure that the extraction ductwork is free from excessive grease build-up, which can be a fire hazard.

Canopies and Filters: Positioned directly above the cooking appliances, kitchen canopies and filters capture airborne grease particles. Regular cleaning and maintenance in line with TR19 standards prevent these components from becoming clogged and ineffective.

Ventilation Fans: Air ventilation cleaning can help in circulating air and removing contaminants. Ensuring they are free from grease build-up is essential for their efficient operation and for maintaining good air quality.

Access Doors: These are used to access the internal parts of the ductwork for inspection and cleaning. TR19 standards dictate that access doors should be installed at regular intervals and be appropriately sealed to prevent any leakage.

Air Handling System (AHS): AHS condition and circulate air within the kitchen. Ensuring they are maintained and cleaned as per TR19 guidelines helps in providing a safe and comfortable environment for kitchen staff.

Dampers: These are used to control the flow of air in the duct system. Ensuring they function correctly and are free from grease is vital for the safety and efficiency of the ventilation system. Regular testing of fire dampers is crucial to ensure they operate effectively in the event of a fire, preventing its spread through the ductwork. At Grease Gone, we also offer comprehensive fire damper testing services to ensure your kitchen remains compliant and safe.

Adherence to TR19 cleaning compliance ensures that all these components function optimally, reducing the risk of fires and ensuring a safe and healthy environment for both staff and patrons.

Why is TR19 Grease Compliance Necessary for Commercial Kitchens?

Health and Safety Implications:

Fire Risks: Grease is highly flammable. Accumulation of grease in extraction systems and other kitchen components can pose a significant fire hazard. Adhering to TR19 standards ensures that grease levels are kept in check, reducing the risk of devastating kitchen fires.

Air Quality and Ventilation Concerns: A build-up of grease can compromise the efficiency of ventilation systems, leading to poor air quality. This can result in an uncomfortable environment for staff and can even pose health risks over prolonged exposure.

Operating a commercial kitchen is no small feat, with the safety and well-being of both staff and patrons at the forefront of responsibilities. TR19 compliance is not just a regulatory standard but a crucial measure to ensure a safe and healthy kitchen environment.

Legal and Insurance Implications:

Compliance with Local Regulations: TR19 is a recognised industry standard in the UK. Ensuring compliance not only safeguards against potential legal repercussions but also demonstrates a commitment to industry best practices.

Insurance Requirements: Many insurance providers may stipulate adherence to TR19 standards as a condition of coverage. Regular maintenance and cleaning in line with these standards can also lead to reduced premiums, as the risk of fire and related damages is minimised.
