Restaurant Suppression System

Excellent Service to Exceed Your Expectations

Inspection & Testing of Restaurant Suppression System

The biggest risk to restaurants are when the grills, deep fryers and exhaust systems are not cleaned properly and maintained. Due to updated and more efficient equipment, fires in kitchens are harder to extinguish due to higher temperatures that are present.

ULC 1254 addresses the changing fire protection needs of restaurant kitchens. NFPA 17a and 96, clarify what your responsibilities for cleaning, maintenance, inspection and testing of your kitchen suppression system are. These codes require you to use a certified fire protection professional approved by your local authority (usually the fire department) to conduct all semi-annual and annual inspections and tests.

Our Inspection Process

Reliable Fire & Safety installs, maintains, inspects and tests kitchen suppression systems. Our ASTT-certified fire protection technicians will:

  • Replace your dry chemical fire suppression system with a wet chemical system that meets the ULC1254 Standard
  • Verify whether or not your wet chemical system is compliant with ULC1254
  • Inspect your existing fire suppression system every six months, in accordance with NFPA 17a and 96

If your commercial kitchen has a dry chemical fire suppression system, it must be replaced with a wet chemical system equipped with an automatic fuel shut-off that stops the flow of gas or cuts off electricity to all the appliances once the fire suppression system is tripped. The system should also automatically trip or activate the building’s fire alarm system.
