What Are Fire Suppression Systems?
Having a suitable fire suppression system can help to keep fire accidents under control and prevent catastrophic losses. In restaurants and kitchens at home, a fire suppression system is one of the core safety items to invest in. It can prevent everything you’ve worked hard for from going up in flames. Furthermore, you can safeguard lives by having a suitable fire suppression system Toronto in place.
Is Your Fire Suppression System In Good Working Order?
Installing a suppression system at your commercial premise is one thing but making sure it’s in good working order is another. In most commercial kitchens, this suppression system is what can help to avoid huge losses and ensure maintenance of safety standards and code. Some buildings are old and may not have the updated systems. For instance, some buildings may have the dry fire suppression systems which have been rendered ineffective over the years.
Regular Inspections Are Important
It’s always important to ensure that the kitchen fire suppression Toronto is up to code. This can be done by conducting inspections at different intervals: monthly, quarterly, semi-annually and annually. Inspections should be carried out as per the manufacturer’s instructions. Physical inspections, where you can visually look out for signs of trouble like wear or corrosion on the system, should be conducted on a monthly basis. You also need to call in a qualified fire technician to inspect the fire suppression system every few years in order to ensure the existing set up complied to the current code.
Dry Vs. Wet Fire Suppression Systems
Dry fire suppression systems when installed in commercial kitchens have been found unable to control fires that have started from grills or gas appliances. These dry systems are unable to put out fires from modern kitchen appliances including deep fryers that can reach extremely high temperatures.
Wet fire suppression systems on the other hand are designed to help prevent the re-ignition of a fire. This is done by inhibiting the flow of fuel to certain types of appliances whenever there is a fire accident in the kitchen. For instance, the wet system can restrict flow of fuel to all appliances that use natural gas or electricity in the kitchen.
To determine whether your kitchen has a dry or wet fire suppression system, you will need to get in touch with an expert. Often, you will need to upgrade your dry system in order to be up to code.
