Types of Kitchen Fire Suppression Systems
Fires in commercial kitchens can start in the blink of an eye. We design our kitchen fire protection solutions to minimize the impact of these events. In the United States, different flammable/combustible materials carry unique Fire Class ratings:
|Class||Fire Risk||Suppression Solution|
|A||Nonmetallic solids||Various methods are effective|
|C||Electrical equipment||Any suppression that doesn’t use conductive substances|
|D||Metals||Specialized suppression for metallic substances|
|K||Cooking Fats/oils||Oxygen removal/water mist|
Every restaurant is different, so it’s crucial to customize a restaurant fire suppression system to meet the exact needs of your business. We are here to help you identify your risks.
Up-to-Code Restaurant Fire Suppression Systems
The three main codes restaurant owners in the US need to be aware of are:
- UL 300: Standard for Fire Testing of Fire Extinguishing Systems for Protection of Commercial Cooking Equipment
- NFPA 17A: Standard for Wet Chemical Extinguishing Systems
- NFPA 96: Standard for Ventilation Control and Fire Protection of Commercial Cooking Operations
Ensure that your building is up to these codes with the right fire suppression systems. Our team is here to help you plan and install the solutions you need, from kitchen hood fire suppression system installations to adding fire extinguishers throughout your restaurant.
