Can Your Kitchen Fire Suppression System Take the Heat?
After your last kitchen fire suppression system inspection, is your system ready to protect your restaurant, food prep facility, or commercial kitchen?
Would you stake everything on that?
Many restaurant owners either don’t know or don’t particularly care what goes into a kitchen fire suppression system inspection. And for the most part, you don’t need to know the specifics. It is important, however, to know you can trust the company you’ve hired to carry out your inspection. After all, it’s easy for someone to come into your kitchen, take the tension off your fire suppression system, unscrew and replace the nozzles, and hang up an updated inspection tag. And trust us—you do NOT want to wait until there’s a fire to find out this happened to you!
