KITCHEN HOOD FIRE SUPPRESSION SYSTEMS:
Today’s commercial kitchens contain many elements that can pose a fire risk. New stoves and grills are able to reach higher temperatures and the oils now favored for frying retain their heat for longer. A well-maintained fire suppression system is the first line of defense in protecting your staff, customers and livelihood.
Per NFPA regulations, your kitchen fire suppression system must be inspected every 6 months. During these semi-annual inspections our technicians will:
Inspect all system conduit and piping.
Check all nozzles for blockages and clean or replace those requiring maintenance to ensure all are in proper working order.
Replace all fusible links.
Confirm that the gas and electric supply to equipment shuts off when the system is activated.
Perform a trip test on the detection line to ensure proper actuation.
Test the remote pull station.
Test electrical interlocks.
Inspect all agent and pressurized cylinders.
