A Wheel Placement System for Moveable Equipment

Dormont Manufacturing is pleased to announce the introduction of Posi-Set™, a wheel (caster) placement system for moveable cooking equipment. Designed for commercial kitchens, Posi-Set ™ is installed on the kitchen floor below the rear casters of mobile cooking equipment located under the exhaust hood. Use of the Posi-Set device will help ensure the maximum efficiency of the fire suppression system – in that the specific cooking equipment is returned to the approved design location after removal for cleaning.

This new addition to the Dormont Safety System was designed to help operators comply with national fire codes. Posi-Set™ addresses the requirements for moveable cooking equipment as defined by the national Fire Protection Agency (NFPA). Specifically:

– NFPA 96 – Section12.1.2.3 states that: “An approved method shall be provide that will ensure that the appliance is returned to an approved design location”

– NFPA 17A – Section 5.6.4 states that: “Moveable cooking equipment shall be provided with a means to ensure that it is correctly positioned in relation to the appliance discharge nozzle during cooking operation.”

The Dormont Posi-Set System will be introduced in conjunction with the new Safety Through Mobility™ Program at the 2005 NAFEM Show (National Association of Food Equipment Manufacturers) in Anaheim, CA (September 23-25, 2005).

Posi-Set™ joins the Dormont Safety System, a family of products designed specifically for the commercial foodservice industry.
