Kitchen Hood Systems

Over 1,000 times a day fires ignite in commercial kitchens. The failure of a Suppression System to operate properly could prove very costly. With today’s high-temperature appliances using oil and solid fuels it’s essential that Kitchen Fire Suppression Systems stay in good operating condition. A fire suppression system is designed to provide fire protection for restaurant cooking appliances, exhaust hoods, and ducts as defined by the National Fire Protection Association NFPA 17A – Standard for Wet Chemical Extinguishing Systems, and NFPA 96 – Standard for Ventilation Control and Fire Protection of Commercial Cooking Operations. These systems are pre-engineered and consist of mechanical and electrical components for installation by an authorized distributor.

NFPA commercial hood inspection requirements are designed to protect large and small food preparation facilities and required Semi-Annual Inspections of these facilities provides the security that equipment will operate immediately when needed.

Direct Fire Protection offers complete installation, repairs, upgrades for all kitchen hood systems from dry chemical to wet chemical, over lapping protection and engineered carbon dioxide fire suppression systems.
