Get started.
The most recognized and current fire suppression system in the fire protection industry is the Wet Chemical Pre-engineered fire suppression system. Wet Chemical Systems are used to protect your commercial kitchen hoods, ducts and appliances from fire hazards.
The Wet Chemical Systems are highly efficient, automatic fire detectors that respond fast to fire hazards by preventing re-ignition. When combined with water sprinkler systems, you can have highly effective fire systems in your restaurant.
Water sprinklers can be used anywhere water is readily available. Yes, water sprinkler systems can be used as substitutes for wet chemical pre-engineered systems but work more effectively when used together.
Automatic Water Sprinklers do not address specific restaurant hood, duct, or appliance fire protection needs. The automatic sprinklers do address general functional, strength, corrosion and nozzle coverage for fire protection.
On the other hand, Wet Chemical Pre-engineered Systems are tested for performance so they can extinguish restaurant-cooking appliances. Wet Chemical Pre-engineered Systems can extinguish fire on duct, hood, deep fat fryers, griddles, gas, electric, char and chain broilers. The wet chemical systems can successfully extinguish commercial kitchen fires without splashing or re-igniting cooking grease. This means that Wet Chemical Systems can provide complete protection simultaneously to all commercial restaurant hazards.
By using wet chemical systems and automatic water sprinklers, your restaurant will be following the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards that help minimize the possibility and effects of fire. Get your proper fire systems installed today with Fireline Corporation.
Commercial restaurant kitchens are equipped with ranges, broilers, fryers and ovens. These appliances, when combined with high temperatures and cooking oils, provide an ideal environment for a fire. The best protection against restaurant fires is the installation of a pre-engineered wet chemical restaurant suppression system. Our pre-engineered restaurant hood wet chemical systems have successfully suppressed many restaurant cooking equipment, exhaust hood and duct fires and are the industry standard. Re-engineered wet chemical systems have pre-determined flow rates and quantities of extinguishing agent, as well as the specific pipe sizes and number and types of nozzles prescribed by the manufacturer. It is vitally important to have these systems designed installed by a qualified fire protection contractor. Semi-annual inspections, including fusible link replacement, are also important factors to ensure proper operation in the event of a fire.
