Kitchen Fire Suppression System Services in Southeast Michigan

Commercial-grade cooking appliances require more robust and advanced fire protection technologies than their residential counterparts.

With so many heating elements operating at high temperatures throughout the day, the likelihood is much higher of a fire causing severe damage — especially when the right fire suppression system isn’t installed and operating correctly. Your commercial kitchen needs a fire suppression system that operates correctly and will extinguish a fire on your cooking appliances.

Commercial kitchens come with advanced technologies to protect against flames and mitigate damage. The suppression system works by releasing wet chemical extinguishing agents designed specifically to put out fires involving cooking materials like oil and grease.

A fire suppression system helps prevent a fire from spreading and extinguishes the flames, keeping employees safe and equipment protected.

Fire Systems of Michigan installs, inspects, and provides repair services to top-quality commercial kitchen fire suppression systems from the industry’s most renowned brands. With over 40 years of experience, we’re the fire protection company you can trust.

Kitchen Fire Suppression System FAQs

Some of the frequently asked questions we receive include:

Every commercial kitchen is required to have a system protecting the cooking appliances and hood, but are also required to have a system protecting the cooking appliances and hood, but are also required to have a Class-K fire extinguisher with a placard stating the fire suppression system should be activated before attempting to use a handheld fire extinguisher.

The NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) advises and manufacturers require a commercial kitchen fire suppression systems inspection every six months.

In the event of a fire, some people panic, and logic flies out the window. A posted fire-safety checklist is a smart idea for every commercial kitchen:

  • Any fire: Turn off the heat source and shut doors to isolate the fire from people.
  • Large fire: Activate the fire suppression system and call 911. Make sure the gas and/or electricity to your appliances are disabled with the kitchen system activated to avoid the fire reigniting. Begin evacuation.
  • Small fire: Place lid on top of the pan, smother with a wet towel, and/or sprinkle baking soda or salt on the fire.

In addition to maintenance, restaurant owners/managers should:

  • Designate one kitchen worker to call 911 and evacuate the restaurant during an emergency.
  • Designate one kitchen worker to shut off gas and electricity during an emergency.
  • Train every kitchen worker on how to activate/use fire suppression and extinguisher systems.
  • Schedule a fire safety training every year.
