A semi-annual inspection of your fire suppression system is necessary for many reasons. It is important to make sure the system is in operating condition. The only other way to find out that a problem exists is to have a fire and have it not work. During the inspection, manufacturer trained technicians will, among other things, check to make sure the system is operational and that the covered equipment has not changed. The semi-annual inspection is required by local, state and national fire codes as well as by most insurance companies and local authorities having jurisdiction (fire inspectors, etc).
YES! The nozzles covering the equipment, although they may look similar, are not the same. Different nozzles are designed to spray chemical over different cooking equipment in the event of a fire. Also, some equipment needs more nozzles than others and the nozzles need to be at different heights and angles depending on the equipment being covered.
Most systems manufactured prior to 1995 do not meet the UL 300 standard. For a complete explanation, click here. If your system is not UL 300 compliant, contact our installation department for information on updating or replacing your existing system.

There are many different reasons for receiving a violation from the NYC Fire Department. All violations should be handled immediately to prevent additional fines and court costs. Fax a copy to us at (732) 643-0076, and then call to discuss the problem. If it is something we can help you with, we will let you know what the next step is to rectify the violation.

That all depends. Some discrepancies can be corrected yourself, for instance by simply shifting cooking equipment back to their correct positions under the hood. Other discrepancies could require that you contact another vendor (hood cleaner, electrician, etc) to correct. Some discrepancies may require a small repair; others may require a new system. For more information about the discrepancies on your inspection report, contact our repair department.
