Is Your Kitchen Fire Suppression Inspection Up to Code?

When receiving an inspection of your kitchen fire suppression system, there are a few things you should know to ensure the safety of your property, employees and yourself. The following questions can assist restaurant owners in assessing the value of the kitchen fire suppression inspection they are receiving:
  1. How long have you been in the industry?

    Beware of companies with limited experience. They often attempt to entice customers with low pricing because of their lack of knowledge and provide little, if any, value with their inspection services.
     
  2. Are you a distributor for the brand of system in my kitchen?

    A distributor for the brand of system you use will have more up-to-date information on inspection standards and general knowledge of the product.
     
  3.  Is a trip test and fuel shut down included in your inspection?

    A fuel shut down and trip test should be performed during every inspection. They are both required by the National Fire Protection Association.
     
  4. Is a complete pipe blowout performed during your inspection?

    Pipes can become blocked with grease and debris causing your system to function poorly. A complete pipe blowout should be performed during every inspection.
     
  5. Are your technicians bonded and insured?

     Working with technicians which are properly bonded and insured will protect you in the event of an accident.
Having a thorough inspection of your kitchen fire suppression system could make a remarkable difference in the event of an emergency. If the company providing your inspection has limited experience or doesn’t perform a trip test and fuel shut down, you have a reason to be concerned.
