Interesting post. Isn’t there pretty stringent testing on used equipment like this? How can it be re-sold?
Yes the used hood has to be UL listed. The city building inspector and fire marshal will inspect the system once installed for performance and saftey.
The fire supression system has a different lisc specfic to fire saftey. It also goes through testing for performance with the city inspector and fire marshal.
I am installing systems in fayetteville, springdale and one in rogers this week alone.
Hood installs been going well. Shiply Do Nuts have been opening stores in springdale, rogers that we have done the hood installation.
Fayetteville, on Joyce and college by eyemart on the 2nd floor is a new restaurant going in called Spring Roll
We did a 16ft hood, requiring two fans with two exhaust ducts. Cause the Wok need much more air exhausted. The air is heavy with cooking oils.
THE PRICE IS GOING UP ON ALL MY HOOD JOBS.
Here’s why, new enforcement on fire wrap of the grease ducting. Its required for 2 full wraps of fire wrap. Double the price.
Plus added time for inspections.
Once smoke testing is done, first layer of fire wrap. Now we have to have this first layer inspected before the second layer.
So here’s the skinny, when calling for inspection it can be from 8 to 12 or 1 to 4
Waiting around cost money. Now we have to do the wait twice for both layers of fire wrap inspection. This will be added into our quotes passed on to the end user.
Another new code to add to the cost.
Its required to install a heat sensor within the hood cavity.
This new device is to turn on the hood automatically when a pre set temperature is reached.
Hum, how would that even happen. > in case some dummy starts cooking without turning on the hood system on. Okeeedokee
