The demand for a low-fat diet has changed the effectiveness of conventional extinguishing agents. Additives which make low-fat oils palatable, coupled with super-insulated deep fat fryers have rendered most traditional dry chemical agents ineffective for fighting these types of fires. The concern has been so significant that a UL 300 test requirement was enacted calling for new agents and new designs for all systems installed or modified as of November 21, 1994.
Great Southwestern Fire & Safety, can survey your hood fire suppression system and determine if it meets these new requirements. We can also inspect and maintain your system(s) in accordance with the National Fire Protection Association’s standards 17, 17A and 96.
NFPA 96, Standard for Ventilation Control and Fire Protection of Commercial Cooking Operations, was recently updated. The newly released 2014 edition has a requirement that impacts old dry chemical systems. Effective January 1, 2014, all automatic fire extinguishing systems for the protection of commercial cooking equipment are required to meet ANSI/UL 300, Standard for Fire Testing of Fire Extinguishing Systems for the Protection of Commercial Cooking Equipment (2005, revised 2010), or an equivalent standard. This means that existing pre-engineered dry chemical systems protecting this hazard will need to be removed and replaced.
