Commercial Kitchen Fire Supression


Kitchen fire suppression systems have a remarkable record of putting out and controlling cooking fires. A properly installed and maintained kitchen fire suppression system is arguably a restaurant’s most important investment.

Healthier lifestyle trends over the years have caused dramatic changes to how kitchen fires are addressed. Gone are the days of frying food in unhealthy animal fat and using inefficient and costly cooking equipment. Today, energy-efficient appliances maintain heat for longer periods of time; while vegetable oils burn at higher temperatures than animal fats. Both of these factors contribute to the creation of fires that are much more difficult to extinguish.

Tests by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) have shown that old kitchen systems no longer are capable of extinguishing and controlling fires as they once were. As a result, the “UL 300” standard was created years ago and has since been adopted by the State Fire Marshal and all local fire departments. Compliance in this case is not only mandated by these authorities, but it is vital to the continued, successful operation of your business.

The question is: Is your most important investment “UL 300 compliant” and still offering you the same protection and peace of mind that it once did? Or are you operating your business based on outdated information and living under a false sense of security?

The answer is: Fredriksen Fire Equipment’s qualified and licensed technicians. Whether you require a new installation, an upgrade to a UL 300 compliant system, or semi-annual inspection of your existing kitchen fire suppression system, our personnel will assist you properly.
