The Firechief Kitchen Stove Guard is the smart way to prevent kitchen fires!



It is an unfortunate but true fact that 50% of all accidental house fires start in the kitchen. However, the Firechief Kitchen Stove Guard - a device that works out when the temperature of cooking is too high and turns off the source of ignition - provides a worry-free approach to managing cooker top safety and effectively prevents kitchen fires before they start.

Installing the Kitchen Stove Guard creates a safer home for everyone but especially the elderly, vulnerable and student population, as well as the tenants and owners of flats and luxury apartments. It can be easily adapted to the needs of special user groups. It can link into a Telecare System, alerting carers of potential fire hazards and can also be adapted with sensory signals, such as vibrating pads and flashing beacons for the hearing or sight impaired or those with dementia.

Easy to use, the Firechief Kitchen Stove Guard is operated and re-activated with just the push of a button.  It can be either ceiling or wall mounted over or above the hob.

The Kitchen Stove Guard’s intelligent fire safety technology provides continuous protection 24/7 and complete peace of mind. It monitors and adapts to the occupiers normal cooking style and tracks the rate of increasing heat (unlike many other kitchen detection systems which rely on either smoke or a visible flame), as a steeply rising temperature is an indication of developing fire hazard.  This means it will guard against kitchen fires because it responds before the formation of toxic gases and before a fire is ignited.


The device’s automatic fault diagnosis constantly analyses the Kitchen Stove Guard’s function when the hob is in use, so no monthly testing is required. An intelligent Heat Sensor Dislocation Alarm also prevents the cooker from being used if the Stove Guard’s sensor has been removed.  The Kitchen Stove Guard will even cut off the electricity supply if the hob has been left on accidentally – the setting for this can be tailored to individual installations.

The Firechief Kitchen Stove Guard System can be installed by a qualification electrician in about 15 minutes.  At present the device works only with Induction hobs.

The Firechief Kitchen Stove Guard fulfils EN50615 Stove Guard standard requirements. The Stove Guard sensor’s battery has a 10-year life and the Stove Guard itself has a 2-year warranty.
