Commercial kitchens experience more fires than any other industry. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), nearly 7,500 fires ignite in restaurants around the country each year, resulting in annual losses of three civilian deaths, 110 civilian injuries, and $165 million in property damage.
If your restaurant experiences a fire, the best defense you have is a functioning kitchen fire suppression system. Ignoring a problem with your equipment could leave your building vulnerable to fire, increasing the chance of property damage and loss of life. Fortunately, with Unifour Fire & Safety by your side, you can expect a quick, accurate repair the first time around to restore adequate fire protection and peace of mind.
Schedule a repair for the kitchen fire suppression system in your Southeast restaurant by calling Unifour Fire & Safety today at 866-511-5540.
How Do Kitchen Fire Suppression Systems Work?
While Class K fire extinguishers are useful for fighting cooking fires, you can’t always trust the response time or effectiveness of employees when there’s an emergency. An automatic fire suppression system is more reliable and effective against fires that start in your commercial kitchen. Then, handheld fire extinguishers act as a backup and help prevent stray flames from spreading.
Different types of systems smother fires in various ways. For instance, a wet chemical system ejects an extinguishing agent to create a blanket over the flames and starve it of oxygen. Firefighting foam from an automatic suppression system is non-toxic and non-corrosive to prevent damaging delicate cooking equipment. It’s also easy to clean up wet chemicals after a fire so you can return to business as usual.
Of course, the above scenario is only possible if your fire suppression system is working properly. If not, you could inadvertently put your building, employees, and patrons at risk.
When to Schedule Kitchen Fire Suppression System Repair
You want to be sure that your fire suppression system will go off automatically if a fire starts in your commercial kitchen. Since the system lies dormant until heat and flames activate it, the most likely time to spot a problem is during a routine inspection. If you come across any of the following problems, you know it’s time to schedule a repair from Unifour Fire & Safety:
- Improper conduit, nozzle, or detector locations
- Malfunctioning automatic actuation switch
- No response from remote pull stations
- Under-pressurized or corroded tanks
- Clogged nozzles
- Loose pipes and copper tubing
- Time to replace the system cartridges
- Any other obvious deficiencies
