What is UL 300?

Since 1998 fire code has required fire suppression systems to be upgraded to the UL 300 standard only when certain conditions were met. This has now changed. The current version of the fire code (NFPA 96 standard) now requires all systems to be upgraded to the UL 300 standard effective January 1, 2014.

If you are not familiar with UL 300, Underwriters Laboratory published a new standard in 1994 for restaurant fire suppressions systems due to the introduction of vegetable oil as a cooking media (in place of lard) and higher efficiency cooking equipment. The standard was based on extensive fire testing. The results of the testing showed that more agent and higher agent flow rates were needed to effectively extinguish a fire. In some situations this was 3 to 4 times greater than the system designs available at the time.

Excellent work performed by Luke. When you pay a company to maintain equipment that protects your business, you better get it right. Silco is a VAST improvement over my past company out of Cincinnati. Thank you Luke and Silco. You've earned your review with excellence. Sawyer's Downtown. Lexington, Ky

Annual Visits are a breeze and their reporting to the fire department is an excellent new benefit. I have been utilizing their services for almost 10 years and am delighted that we are always in a safe way with their inspections and certification products. Joe Martini is a friendly and knowledgeable individual who makes the process fun and enjoyable.
