Restaurants come in all shapes, sizes and levels of elegance. From the fast food facility to the elegant five-star restaurant, each type poses different challenges in fire protection design.
Fast food restaurants, as a rule, use bulk CO2 systems. However, this is potentially dangerous to both personnel and customers. We’re especially concerned about leakage in a system.
Elevated Technical Design has been on the forefront, working to determine the best way to protect patrons and staff from CO2 poisoning. In collaboration with the jurisdiction in Phoenix, Arizona, we devised the best way to detect the CO2 leakage within a facility. Now, most jurisdictions throughout the country are catching up and implementing this same innovative addition.
Large, five star restaurants pose a different set of considerations. Replacing the elegant, costly décor can form a huge part of the expense, should a disastrous fire occur. We always consider this factor when choosing the best method and placement of fire protection, all while doing our best to maintain a pleasing aesthetic with wall or ceiling mounted devices. Wherever possible, we offer several options in device color and style so that you can choose those which appear least obtrusive, but still perform the job required with peak efficiency.
In either type of eatery, however, designing an adequate fire suppression system to knock down a kitchen fire is our first concern. The system must be fast, cleanable and prevent re-flash.
ETD’s extensive industry experience helps us provide installation-ready fire alarm drawings. We know which innovative products to use, where and how to place them for fast deployment - right where suppression is needed most. Our design team includes factory-trained and industry-experienced individuals, who give us the ability to provide the most efficient and cost-effective fire alarm design drawings.
From our more than 120 years combined experience, ETD has built an extensive database to help us identify the different codes throughout America and the world. We communicate with the local Fire Marshal to determine what changes have been made to the national code to ensure that your fire alarm design meets both national and local codes. Often, ETD helps the local AHJ understand the code that has been adopted and works with the jurisdiction to ensure that our fire alarm design meets all criteria.
Our team is dedicated to meeting your deadlines. We provide all that you need to submit your construction project to the local Fire Marshal or building department. Since construction is very fast paced, we pride ourselves in fast turnaround times to meet your needs.
