Inspections are performed using Fire Systems technicians—with no sub-contracting; this gives us better control over the quality of service we are able to provide.

KITCHEN HOOD SUPPRESSION SYSTEM INSPECTIONS

Commercial kitchens contain all the elements necessary for a fire. Grease and cooking oils provide the fuel. Oxygen is always available, and heat can come from a variety of sources like an open cooking flame or electrical shorts. Fire spreads quickly over cooking surfaces and to hard-to-reach areas like hoods, plenums, vents and ductwork.

These systems must be inspected routinely in accordance with NFPA 17A. We perform all necessary inspections and maintenance on all types of kitchen hood systems.

Commercial cooking areas cannot afford an interruption in operation caused by a fire. Insurance statistics prove that if a restaurant has a fire, it may never reopen; those that do have lost time and money in the form of personal injury treatment, equipment replacement and higher insurance rates.

In recent years, the development of high-efficiency cooking appliances and a switch to vegetable cooking oils have increased the threat and occurrence of fires that are more difficult to extinguish. Since many commercial kitchens operate long hours and are staffed with people untrained in firefighting, it is imperative to have a fire protection system that combines both automatic fire depletion and suppression.
