Depending on how your commercial building is used, you’ll want to consider fire suppression systems. Once the system detects a change in temperature consistent with a fire, it triggers the nozzles to discharge either wet or dry chemicals. A fire needs three things to survive: oxygen, heat, and fuel. The special chemicals used in fire suppression systems smother fires by starving the flames of oxygen.
Justifying the Cost of Fire Suppression Systems
The cost of a fire suppression system will depend on your application and how much area you need to protect. For example, kitchen hood suppression systems are installed in the hood over cooking surfaces. Many commercial building owners justify the cost of fire suppression systems because they want to keep their buildings safe and up to code.
It’s much less expensive to pay for fire suppression system installation than it is to repair structural damage from fires. There are many different types of fire suppression systems to keep your building and its occupants safe in the event of a fire.
Industrial fire suppression systems use dry chemicals to smother fires. Depending on the type of business you run, a fire protection company may recommend either a local application or total flood system. The dry chemicals in a industrial fire suppression system are able to work in environments with temperatures ranging from -20 to 120 degrees Fahrenheit.

Special Hazard Suppression
Certain rooms have to be protected from fires and the systems that prevent fires. For example, you would need a special type of fire suppression system to protect a computer server room. Wet and dry chemicals would compromise the computer servers, which is why we design systems that release gas to suppress the flames.
Kitchen Hood Suppression
According to the National Restaurant Association, 57% of all restaurant fires are caused by cooking equipment. Thankfully, kitchen fires can be prevented by installing restaurant fire suppression systems. Kitchen hood suppression systems have a two-pronged approach to putting out fires.
First, chemicals are sprayed onto the fire to starve it of oxygen. Next, the electrical and gas fuel sources immediately shut off so the fire has nothing to fuel it. A fan will then automatically kick on to remove smoke from your restaurant kitchen. A kitchen hood suppression system quickly contains and puts out a fire so only one cooking station is affected and you can continue preparing meals. Restaurant fire safety starts with being prepared.
