What do you get at a semi-annual service?
Inspection: Our certified and trained technician will visually inspect your suppression system. When examining the hood, the technician will verify that baffles are installed, there are no holes, and that all appliances/duct/plenum have the correct nozzle coverage. Gauges will be checked to ensure the cylinders are in the correct operating range.
Nozzle Cleaning: Every nozzle will be wiped down, as grease and grime can build up on them. This helps prevent the nozzle from becoming clogged. Foil seals will be replaced, as needed, and we will ensure nozzle caps are installed,.
Link Replacement: Every link will be replaced with a new one.
Testing: The technician will test the functionality of the manual pull stations, the gas valve and micro switch, and ensure the fans are operating propersly.
Accurate Test Dates: The date of the cylinders will be checked to determine if a hydrostatic test needs to be performed. A hydrostatic test is required every 12 years for kitchen systems. Paint booths receive the same maintenance schedule as dry chemical fire extinguishers.
In addition to examining the cylinder, the technician will check dates on the cartridge and replace as needed.
Deficiency Reporting: If our certified technician determines that your system is not in compliance, it will be “red tagged” and marked deficient. This is to indicate to the Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) that repairs, adjustments, or replacements are required. You will be contacted by the AHJ to correct any deficiencies.
Quote to Comply: If your system is tagged with a deficiency, our sales team will provide you with a quote to determine the most economical way to get you back into compliance.
Inspection Report Submission: After the inspection, our office staff will upload your inspection report to the appropriate Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ), whether it has passed or failed an inspection. Many of our local AHJ’s utilize The Compliance Engine™ to track fire safety equipment.
Inspection Report Delivery: We will also email you a Service Link via ServiceTrade™ to view your detailed BuilidngReports™ inspection report.
