Fire Extinguishers

A

s a one source resource for commercial and industrial fire protection services, Premier Fire sells, installs and services new multi-purpose and clean agent extinguishers. We also provide mobile refill service and training. Hood suppression system installation, maintenance and testing are also services that we provide.

 

 

    • Fire extinguishers – inspection, maintenance, training - Fire extinguishers are a vital element of the health and safety of people in and around a building. They need to work every time, without fail. Using a professional installation and maintenance team is key in making an area as safe as possible and is also a legal requirement. The designated ‘responsible person’ has a Duty of care to make sure that a ‘competent contractor’ is employed to install and maintain the fire extinguishers. We are a dedicated company and we provide a competent and professional service at your convenience, to cause as little disturbance as reasonably achievable.
    • Hood Suppression Systems – Install & Inspection - Over 1,000 times a day, fires ignite in commercial kitchens. The failure of a suppression system to operate properly will prove very costly. With today's high-temperature appliances using oil and solid fuels, it's essential that kitchen fire suppression systems stay in good operating condition. A restaurant fire suppression system is designed to provide fire protection for restaurant cooking appliances, exhaust hoods, and ducts as defined by the National Fire Protection Association NFPA 17A – Standard for Wet Chemical Extinguishing Systems, and NFPA 96 – Standard for Ventilation Control and Fire Protection of Commercial Cooking Operations. These systems are pre-engineered and consist of mechanical and electrical components for installation by an authorized distributor. Premier Fire & safety installs and services restaurant / kitchen hood fire suppression systems. Our service program is a comprehensive program that provides yearly inspections, emergency response and a full complement of maintenance services. With our service you have the peace of mind knowing a proactive program is in place to help keep your kitchen fire suppression system in top condition
    • Hood Cleaning - Customers have relied on Premier Fire & Safety to ensure that their kitchen and exhaust system operate at peak performance throughout the year. We take this trust very seriously. That’s why our technicians get the job done right the first time, leaving you with a grease free exhaust system from cook top to roof top.
    • High & Low Pressure Testing - The cylinder is visually examined for defects and then placed in a container filled with water, and in which the change in volume of the cylinder can be measured, usually by monitoring the water level in a calibrated tube. The cylinder is then pressurized for a specified period, usually 30 or more seconds, and if specified, the expansion will be measured by reading off the amount of liquid the has been forced into the measuring tube by the volume increase of the pressurized cylinder. The cylinder is then depressurized, and the permanent volume increase due to plastic deformation while under pressure is measured by comparing the final volume in the measuring tube with the volume before pressurization. A leak will give a similar result to permanent set, but will be detectable by holding the volume in the pressurized cylinder by closing the inlet valve for a period before depressurizing, as the pressure will drop steadily during this period if there is a leak. In most cases a permanent set that exceeds the specified maximum will indicate failure. A leak may also be a failure criterion, but it may be that the leak is due to poor sealing of the test equipment. If the cylinder fails, it will normally go through a condemning process marking the cylinder as unsafe. Hydrostatic testing:
      • • Water, Foam, Wet chemical, and CO2, every 5 years. DOT-3AL gas cylinders must be tested every 5 years and have an unlimited life.
      • • DOT-3HT gas cylinders must be tested every 3 years and have a 24 year life.
      • • DOT-3AA gas cylinders must be tested every 5 years and have an unlimited life. (Unless stamped with a star (*) in which case the cylinder meets certain specifications and can have a 10 year hydrostatic test life).
    • • Low Pressure Testing - Small pressure cylinders are normally tested using a water jacket test. The cylinder is visually examined for defects and then placed in a container filled with water, and in which the change in volume of the cylinder can be measured, usually by monitoring the water level in a calibrated tube. The cylinder is then pressurized for a specified period, usually 30 or more seconds, and if specified, the expansion will be measured by reading off the amount of liquid the has been forced into the measuring tube by the volume increase of the pressurized cylinder. The cylinder is then depressurized, and the permanent volume increase due to plastic deformation while under pressure is measured by comparing the final volume in the measuring tube with the volume before pressurization. A leak will give a similar result to permanent set, but will be detectable by holding the volume in the pressurized cylinder by closing the inlet valve for a period before depressurizing, as the pressure will drop steadily during this period if there is a leak. Dry chemical, dry powder, halon, and clean agents, every 12 years.
    • CO2 Systems – Install & Inspection - Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is an excellent fire suppressing agent. It has been used in the fire protection industry for many years, and is listed under NFPA-12 Carbon Dioxide Fire Extinguishing Systems. CO2 is used for a variety of systems; including total flooding, local application, and inerting. CO2 extinguishes a fire by removing the oxygen from the surrounding area, and for local application type systems, breaks the fire triangle by removing the heat. Because of the safety considerations when using CO2, it is only used for very specific applications, and not where the hazards are occupied. For many industrial applications, we supply high pressure CO2 cylinders.
    • Dry Powder Systems – Install & Inspection - Kidde IND Systems use either Class ABC or Class BC dry chemical to suppress fire. Pound for pound, dry chemical suppresses more fire than any other agent, providing both rapid suppression and protection against fire re-ignition. Dry chemical is environmentally safe, non-toxic and economical to use in both initial installations and recharge situations. The Amerex "IS" system uses our exclusive ABC (Model 555) dry chemical. ABC dry chemical suppresses more fire, by volume, than any other agent. ABC dry chemical has quick flame "knock-down" and can help to secure Class A fires against re-ignition. Since many hazards involve a variety of fuel sources, our ABC dry chemical, with protection against Class A (wood, paper, pulp), Class B (flammable liquids) and Class C (live electrical equipment) is the agent that is best suited for most Industrial hazards. ·
    • Emergency & Exit Light testing - A functional test shall be conducted on every required emergency lighting system at 30-day intervals for not less than 30 seconds. An annual test shall be conducted on every required battery-powered emergency lighting system for not less than 11/2 hours. Equipment shall be fully operational for the duration of the test. OSHA guidelines dictate that all exit routes have adequate lighting to allow employees with normal vision to clearly see along the route. Exit signs must indicate all exit routes. Likewise, any doors that may appear to lead to exits, but do not, must have signs reading "Not An Exit" clearly indicated.
