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, ranging from an open cooking flame to electrical shorts. Fire can occur on cooking surfaces and in hard-to-reach areas like hoods, plenums, vents and ductwork. Routine hood cleaning is critical to reducing the potential and intensity of a fire.
Kitchen hood fire suppression systems are required to be inspected on a semi-annual basis as a minimum requirement of NFPA 17A. Our trained technicians can inspect and service all types of kitchen hood fire suppression systems. We can also provide training in the proper use and maintenance of your system so in a fire situation everyone will be prepared to respond appropriately.
Inspections are performed using our technicians, without sub-contracting; We do not depend on other companies for our expertise. We use our own technicians to service and repair your kitchen hood fire system. This gives us better control over the quality of service we are able to provide.
