Schedule Kitchen Fire Suppression System Installation 

If you have recently opened a restaurant or need to upgrade your commercial kitchen’s fire suppression system, our expert fire protection professionals can help.

It’s the modern standard for kitchen fire suppression systems that use wet chemicals to bond with kitchen grease and turn it into a soap-like substance. This process, called saponification, extinguishes fires almost immediately in a manner that is safe and relatively easy to clean afterward.

Commercial Kitchen Fire Suppression Installation FAQ

The primary cause of commercial kitchen fires is grease accumulation in the kitchen hood exhaust. To prevent fires in your new kitchen installation, the exhaust should be cleaned to bare metal annually for low-volume restaurants, twice a year for moderately busy restaurants, and quarterly for those with high volume or 24-hour operation.

Restaurants using wood or other solid fuels should clean the exhaust monthly.

The system should be inspected and serviced twice a year. Devices like smoke detectors, heat detectors, gas interlocks, electric interlocks, fans, pull stations, and controls should be inspected, filters should be cleaned, and items like fusible links should be replaced.

At Guardian Fire Protection, we can handle all the inspections and maintenance for your kitchen hood suppression system.

Fusible links are temperature-sensitive devices that activate under high heat, turning on the commercial kitchen fire suppression system. They should be replaced every six months or after a fire to ensure reliable operation of the kitchen fire suppression system.

Commercial kitchen suppression systems should be installed over any appliance that produces a large amount of grease, such as stoves, fryers, grills, or griddles. Appliances that produce primarily heat and steam, like microwaves or ovens, don’t require hood suppression systems.
