Kitchen Suppression


Kitchen suppression systems are an essential part of fire protection in commercial kitchens. These systems are designed to quickly and effectively extinguish fires that may occur in the kitchen, preventing them from spreading and causing extensive damage. The kitchen fire suppression system typically includes a combination of detection, alarm, and suppression features, such as automatic fire sprinklers and fire extinguishers. These systems are specifically designed to handle the unique challenges of a kitchen fire, which may involve grease or cooking oil. The kitchen suppression system is a crucial component in ensuring the safety of restaurant staff, patrons, and the building itself. Proper maintenance and regular inspection of the system are essential to ensure it is fully operational in the event of a fire. Overall, the installation of a reliable kitchen suppression system is a critical aspect of any commercial kitchen’s fire safety plan.

Fire Suppression Installation & Replacement

The purpose of a fire suppression system is to extinguish flames in situations where water isn’t suitable. Commercial kitchens in restaurants, schools, and hospitals need fire suppression because using water would only spread a grease fire. Paint booths and auto body shops need fire suppression because of the hazardous materials stored there. Data centers and server rooms need fire suppression because delicate electronics could be irreparably damaged by water.

Fire Suppression EInspection & Testing

It isn’t enough to install a fire suppression system—local and national fire codes also require routine inspections once a year. The fire suppression testing is done in all the surrounding areas to ensure that the system is working properly, which keeps your employees safe. The professionals at Pronto MS will conduct a fire suppression inspection to keep your business compliant. Some of the items on our checklist include:

  • Inspect pipes and nozzles
  • Test and clean all smoke and heat detectors
  • Verify the shutdown circuit
  • Check for changes in hazard level or layout requirements
  • Inspect input and output circuits
  • Simulate a system discharge and test releasing circuits
  • Check the hydrostatic test dates on cylinders and hoses

Fire suppression testing is also required, usually every six years, to ensure the operational effectiveness and structural integrity of the system’s pressurized cylinders and hoses. We can handle these tasks safely and competently so you can focus on running your commercial kitchen or other business.

Fire Suppression Inspection

Inspecting fire suppression systems allows business owners to identify malfunctions or problems before they cause harm to buildings, equipment, and people. Visual inspections performed by our team will identify recent discharges, system status, and changes to the layout of equipment. When deficiencies are found by our team, they are communicated with clarity and urgency in order to make the system operational as quickly as possible.

Fire Suppression Maintenance

Continuous fire suppression system maintenance is the key to keeping your facility safe. Our team manages this process for you and builds a repair and maintenance plan that is tailored to your facility and your equipment. Some of our fire suppression system services include hydrostatic testing, six-year maintenance, recharging tanks, and replacing power sources when necessary.

Fire Suppression Testing

Testing fire suppression systems involves both the operational effectiveness of the systems and the structural integrity of pressurized components. Testing requirements vary by jurisdiction and system size. We will build a testing calendar that keeps your business compliant.
