Accurex Hood Handles Smoke And Fire


Designed for use over a standard 30- or 36-inch residential range, the Fire Ready Hood incorporates a UL300A-listed self-contained, commercial-style, automatic fire suppression system. If the hood temperature rises beyond normal operation, an onboard controller disables the appliance via the factory-supplied appliance disconnect. An audible alarm and dry contact engages to alert occupants and building alarms of elevated temperatures. If temperatures continue to rise beyond the rating of the system’s fusible link, Amerex 660 agent releases through four nozzles directed at the appliance and one nozzle into the exhaust duct.
