Restaurants are extremely susceptible to fire. There are constant exposed flames, gas lines and flammable ingredients. Fires in a kitchen can start quickly on a stove or oven, putting a lot of people in dangers. That’s why all commercial kitchens are required to have a kitchen hood suppression system above their stoves.
Kitchen Hoods must be inspected and maintained in order to continue working properly.
Ignoring annual kitchen hood inspection would make you susceptible to fines and non-compliance with insurance requirements. Worst of all it would put your property, employees and patrons in serious danger.
Sunland services each kitchen hood based on the NFPA 96 Fire Code – which is the standard for fire protection and ventilation control for commercial cooking operations. Below is an overview of the areas of a kitchen hood that will be inspected:
- Access Panel
- Rooftop Grease Containment
- Hood Grease Filter
- Electrical Wiring
- Duct Access
- Fan Access
- Fan Hinges
- Grease Buildup
- Spark Arrestor
