Commercial kitchens are the heart of restaurants, cafeterias, and other commercial establishments like schools and hospitals. These spaces are also the most complex and at risk of fire. When dealing with a commercial kitchen fire, you cannot put it out with fire. What’s the best solution? You know! Fireline Corporation offers reliable kitchen fire suppression services in Greenbelt, Maryland. Let’s learn more about these systems and what we can do for you.
About Kitchen Fire Suppression Systems
Fire suppression systems come in different forms, but one particular type is for commercial kitchens. This system connects wet fire extinguishing chemicals to a series of pipes that run above high-risk areas like the range. When a smoke or heat sensor goes off, it will activate the system to discharge the wet chemical through the right nozzles. These systems also have manual pull stations should the automatic function fail.
When attached to the range, the fire suppression system can also automatically turn off the power and turn on the exhaust fan. Should a fire ever erupt in your commercial kitchen, an automatic fire suppression system will be quick to contain the fire and put it out. It is especially helpful when you cannot reach the fire extinguisher quickly enough, or the flames are too large for a fire extinguisher alone.
Maintaining Your Kitchen Fire Suppression System
Hopefully, you will never need to use your commercial kitchen fire suppression system. However, it is essential to inspect and maintain it over time so that it will be ready should you need it.
Maintenance comes in the form of routine inspections and tests. You should have a certified, licensed fire protection professional conduct these services. It is also helpful for insurance purposes to do it right and have records of it on file. A typical service checkup routine is twice a year.
You will also want to keep your kitchen fire suppression system clean and free from obstructions. Be careful that grease, gunk, and charred bits don’t end up caking your fire suppression system’s nozzles!
