TR19 Guidelines

TR19 is a set of best practice guidelines created by BESA (Building Engineers Society Association), as a way to standardise extract and duct cleaning.

“Commercial kitchens have grown in number over recent years and fires within premises involving commercial kitchen extract systems as either a source or contributing factor to the fire has focused the attention of insurers, property owners and landlords, to ensuring that kitchen extraction systems are correctly cleaned and maintained. 

With this in mind TR19 Grease - Fire Risk Management of Grease Accumulation within Kitchen Extraction Systems, has been produced as a specification document in its own right for the first time in 2019. The risk of fire from the buildup of grease deposits in kitchen extract systems and the expectations of building occupiers and legislators, has resulted in an ever more stringent level of ventilation system cleanliness being required.”

BESA - 2019

Why Is TR19 Important?

The accumulation of grease within kitchen extraction systems can diminish airflow and increase the risk of fire. TR19 is a recognised standard for measuring grease levels and identifying recommended cleaning frequencies, which are designed to reduce the risk of fire and are tailored to your system. 

Regularly clearing grease deposits can promote a good working environment by taking away heat from cooking to maintain a good supply of airflow and reduce the risk of kitchen fires.

What impact can TR19 have on my business?

Many insurers use TR19 as a standard  within their policies, and may require evidence of compliance in the case of a fire. If your business does not maintain  adherence to the TR19 guidelines, it could  increase your  risk of fire in your kitchen and lead to higher insurance premiums.
