Fire Safety Awareness Should Be Top Priority for Business Owners

Fire safety awareness should always be a top priority across all industries, especially if you run a commercial kitchen. Guardian Services understands that NFPA 96 (The National Fire Protection Association) is the standard for ventilation control and fire protection of commercial cooking operations, and we offer commercial kitchen fire suppression services, in partnership with a leading fire protection company, to help kitchens adhere to the standards. We can assist customers with both the installation and the maintenance of a fire suppression system. In this article, we’ll demonstrate how we can help you prevent kitchen fire hazards.

Commercial Kitchen Fire Suppression

What Are the NFPA 96 Requirements?

NFPA 96 is the standard for safety policies related to ventilation control and fire protection of consumer cooking operations, in order to reduce fire hazards. There are established requirements for the design, installation, operation, inspection, and maintenance of exhaust systems in commercial kitchens to protect against the risk of fire. NFPA 96 lays out hood requirements, ductwork requirements, fan requirements, grease removal devices, and fire suppression systems. There are also requirements for the inspection and maintenance of commercial kitchen systems.
