Kitchen Suppression System Services:
A kitchen area is an example of just one of a facility's most-at-risk locations, especially working around fryers, wood-burning ovens, etc. Grease fires are among the most common in the kitchen, which is why having a suppression system is vital for a business, the employees, and customers safety!
Fire Suppression systems are to be serviced every SIX months, to ensure that your system is fully functional and operational, for any need at any time!
What to expect during a Semi-Annual Service:
- All equipment underneath the hood HAS to be turned completely off and cooled down for a technician to reach up inside, over these appliances.
- Length of service will typically be about an hour to two hours for completion.
- Service may be completed prior to "normal business" hours, if someone is on-site.
Maintenance & Repairs:
General Maintenance is performed at the time of each service semi-annually, to ensure that all parts are functioning properly to the system. At the time of service, the inspection is pass or fail. Meaning, that small parts get replaced annually to avoid malfunction of the system. Drops are laser-pointed to direct appliances and recorrected, if moved.
If the Hood Suppression system fails at time of service, repairs to the system must be made in order for the system to become fully functional again and up-to-code per local jurisdiction. This also includes any repair needing additional parts and/or material unique to a business's system!
Design & Installations:
Every Fire Suppression system has pre-engineered plans and permits per California Code. This meaning that every drop, pieces of the hood, and/or appliances underneath should NOT be moved without permission & permits from the Fire Department. This ensures that your building is up-to-code, working properly, and ready to use in the event of a fire!
