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.
