Nobel Fire Systems protects new landmark restaurant kitchen

“London’s culinary landmark” is just one of the ways in which The Magazine Restaurant has been described. Situated within Serpentine Galleries, it’s where Oliver “Ollysan” Lange delights restaurant guests with his very special contemporary cooking. Diners also experience an awe inspiring new space designed by the renowned Zaha Hadid Architects.

The interior of this new ‘space age’ restaurant with its swooping columns and mood lighting makes a dramatic statement of creative intent, so the last thing that the owners wanted was a kitchen fire suppression system that when installed would conflict with the overall aesthetic appearance of both restaurant and kitchen.

Working closely with Halton Foodservice, Nobel Fire Systems were tasked with providing a kitchen fire suppression system that would ultimately reflect the high end environment of the new kitchen while at the same time providing optimum efficiency and protection for all the required cooking appliances, extract canopy and ductwork.

Working to this exacting brief and following a site survey by their in-house engineers, Nobel has now seamlessly installed its award winning K-Series fire suppression system into this busy kitchen environment. Manufactured in stainless steel to enhance the working life and endurance of the product, all pipework, nozzles, detection and controls have been installed in complete sympathy with the appearance, functionality and strict hygiene requirements of The Magazine restaurant kitchen.

The electrical nature of the K-Series system ensures that all circuits can be fully monitored for fault conditions and therefore provides a distinct advantage over other ‘mechanical’ systems while at the same time providing the restaurant with total confidence in the operational integrity of the system.

Ben Parker, Commercial Director of Nobel Fire Systems commented;
“There’s no doubt that the aesthetics of contemporary physical space in commercial kitchens is becoming an increasingly important consideration for owners and designers. We believe that it’s therefore imperative that we contribute products that deal with that requirement positively and creatively. The Nobel K-Series system does exactly that”.
