What is TR19®?
TR19® Grease – Fire Risk Management of Grease Accumulation within Kitchen Extraction Systems is a document produced by BESA in 2019. TR19® has been widely accepted within the building services sector and by the UK insurance industry as the standard to which ventilation systems should be cleaned.
TR19® specifies how often a facility should be cleaned based on a rating of high, medium or low depending on usage. At Sussex Oven Cleaning our qualified operatives are able to tell you the frequency at which your facility should have your kitchen extract system cleaned.
Is it a legal requirement?
Many buildings insurance providers expect that air vents and ductwork to be cleaned on a regular basis, in accordance with TR19®. Non-compliance can result in your policy being compromised. To comply with the Regulatory Reform ( Fire Safety) Order 2005, or equivalent national legislation it is a requirement that grease extraction systems are cleaned and inspected regularly to ensure the mitigation of fire hazards.
