Fire Suppression System Services

Running a busy restaurant can be stressful, and sometimes kitchen maintenance gets pushed to the back burner—which could be dangerous for your guests and employees. The survival of your business may depend on your kitchen hood fire suppression system’s ability to detect and suppress flames before they become uncontrollable. Commercial kitchen fires can ignite in the blink of an eye, and without a dependable fire suppression system, they can be detrimental to your employees, customers, and property.

Commercial kitchens have changed – equipment heats to higher temperatures, oils burn hotter, and cooking equipment has improved heat retention. A kitchen fire cannot be simply doused with water, it must be diffused at its fuel source with a chemical suppression system installed by the experts at Eagle Safety Management. Whether you need a new fire suppression system or a routine inspection or repair, we will be there at a moment’s notice to provide you with a free estimate.

We Provide Prompt and Reliable Hood Fire Suppression Inspection, Repair, and Service

Although the National Fire Protection Agency’s (NFPA) requirements vary depending on the type of cooking performed in your commercial kitchen, some requirements are consistent for all kitchen hood fire suppression systems.

NFPA 96 requires that all kitchen hood suppression systems have routine inspections by a licensed fire protection company (like Eagle Safety Management) that include:

  • Testing the manual pull station
  • Replacing the temperature-activated links
  • Verifying gauge on pressurized tanks
  • Removing and clean nozzles
  • Documenting and reporting deficiencies to customer

If your kitchen hood fire suppression system hasn’t been inspected recently, don’t wait. Schedule an inspection to ensure that your kitchen’s hood suppression system is ready to handle any unexpected situation.
