The term restaurant covers a range of different eateries, from fast food chains to award winning Michelin-starred establishments, workplace canteens, cafes, bars and university refectories.
A restaurant establishment is usually divided into two principle areas, the dining room and the kitchen – and each has its own unique set challenges which must be considered.
The kitchen areas present a fire risk and there is also a need to ensure staff and deliveries can be made without compromising security access. Kitchens and storage areas will no doubt have valuable stocks that need protection.
Front of house, it is important to be able to protect the premises, particularly when closed, with secure access control and CCTV. However this has to be in a way that is not intrusive when dining areas are in use such that customers feel they are being watched and their dining experience is affected.
