Kitchen Suppression Systems

Businesses and commercial kitchens today use hot cooking oils, various types of fats, grease and other flammable substances in their kitchens; this paired with the use of high-energy cooking appliances, lack of proper maintenance, inspections and cleaning has the ability to turn any kitchen operation into a dangerous environment and, most importantly, a high fire hazard. ProActive Fire Safety is here to assist and help your commercial kitchen stay in compliance, operational and safe.

National Fire Protection Association (NFPA 96) provides preventive and operative fire safety requirements intended to reduce the potential fire hazard of both public and private commercial cooking operations.
