Fire Supression

Commercial kitchens have changed – equipment heats to higher temperatures, oils burn hotter, and cooking equipment has improved heat retention. A kitchen fire cannot be simply doused with water, it must be diffused at its fuel source with a chemical suppression system installed by the experts at Impact Fire.

Kitchen Suppression

It’s a fact: your kitchen is one of your facility’s most at-risk locations, especially when it comes to a potential grease fire. But water can actually spread a grease fire, so a well functioning suppression system is vital.

The Process

  • A diagnostic of the system to determine whether it is in service and in satisfactory condition in accordance with NFPA standards
  • Identification of potentially detrimental site conditions that could compromise the performance of mechanical and/or electronic components of the system
  • Testing of remote pulls and the manual release of the system
  • Performance of an automatic trip test to verify mechanical operation of the system
  • Verification of gas and electric shut-off functionality
  • Replacement of fusible links where required
  • Check of system components for cleanliness
  • Restoration and reset of the system to normal operation and installation of new tamper prevention devices
  • Inspection of the suppression agent cylinder
  • Verification that the last hydrostatic test date is within code requirements
  • Verification of cylinder/cartridge pressure, agent weight, and condition
  • Inspection and verification of piping/bracing to manufacturer’s specifications
  • Inspection of all nozzles and verification that they are properly aimed, free from blockage, and have the proper blow-off caps intact
  • Verification that the Owner’s Manual is available on site
  • Verification that a proper, portable fire extinguisher is available in an easily seen and accessible location
  • Inquiry on general occupancy relating to the kitchen fire suppression system in accordance with NFPA standards
  • Inspection for any changes in the hazard area which may affect the performance and reliability of the fire suppression system
  • Tagging of devices as required and performing all required record keeping
