Requirements for updating fire suppresion system yid dating
The National Fire Protection Association's NFPA 96 requires trained and certified personnel to clean restaurant kitchen hoods and exhausts on a regular basis (NFPA 96-11.4).
Their mandated cleaning schedule is as follows: According to NFPA-96 section 11.6.1: “Upon inspection, if found to be contaminated with deposits from grease-laden vapors, the entire exhaust system shall be cleaned by a properly trained, qualified, and certified company or person(s) acceptable to the authority having jurisdiction in accordance with Section 11.4.” The entire exhaust system includes the hood, filters, fan and all associated horizontal and vertical ductwork.
Only the current tag or label shall remain in place.” To maintain its UL 300 listing and current code requirements, your automatic fire suppression system must be inspected on a semi-annual basis by a licensed company.
Suppression systems have become a necessity to several industries as they help control damage and loss to equipment.
Common means of detection are through heat sensors, wiring, or manual detection (depending on system selection).
