Running a busy restaurant can be stressful, and sometimes kitchen maintenance gets pushed to the back burner—which could be dangerous for your guests and employees. The survival of your business may depend on your kitchen hood fire suppression system’s ability to detect and suppress flames before they become uncontrollable. Commercial kitchen fires can ignite in the blink of an eye, and without a dependable fire suppression system they can be detrimental to your employees, customers, and property.

If your commercial kitchen’s fire suppression system needs an inspection, contact Fire Protection Services today! Our technicians will provide a thorough inspection to ensure your restaurant is prepared in the event of a fire.

Although the National Fire Protection Agency’s (NFPA) requirements vary depending on the type of cooking performed in your commercial kitchen, some requirements are consistent for all kitchen hood fire suppression systems.

NFPA 96 requires that all kitchen hood suppression systems have routine inspections by a licensed fire protection company (like Fire Protection Services) that include:

  • Testing the manual pull station
  • Replacing the temperature activated links
  • Verifying gauge on pressurized tanks
  • Removing and clean nozzles
  • Documenting and reporting deficiencies to customer

If your kitchen hood fire suppression system hasn’t been inspected recently, don’t wait. Schedule an inspection to ensure that your kitchen’s hood suppression system is ready to handle any unexpected situation.
