Your new construction might be housing a range of expensive equipment, from commercial cooking equipment in a kitchen to sensitive gear in a paint booth. In the case of commercial kitchens, the very equipment your business will want to protect poses a fire hazard every time it’s used. Other machines are so delicate that water from ordinary fire sprinklers would cause just as much damage as flames and smoke.
Fortunately, United Fire Protection is here to help! We install and inspect fire suppression systems in new constructions across Central Florida, including:
- Aircraft hangars
- Apartment complexes
- Auto body shops
- Commercial kitchens
- Cruise ships
- And more!
If you need help protecting your new construction’s most sensitive equipment from fires, please call us at (407) 218-8348 today to request a free service estimate.
Fire Suppression Installation for New Constructions
We install fire suppression systems in accordance with the Florida Fire Prevention Code and insurance regulations. Proper fire suppression installation requires specialized knowledge and expertise, which is why our fire suppression installation team also includes a licensed electrician.
Instead of contracting out the electrical portion of the installation like many others in our industry, the United Fire Protection team can complete the installation from beginning to end. Involving an electrician with specialized fire protection experience helps ensure that your fire suppression system’s electrical components are installed correctly the first time.
The types of systems we install include:
UL 300 Wet Chemical Fire Suppression Systems for New Constructions
In 1994, Underwriters Laboratories (UL) unveiled a new standard called UL 300. The purpose of this standard was to address changes in commercial kitchen hazards, including the switch from lard to vegetable oils and the rollout of more efficient deep fryers. This standard still applies today. United Fire Protection installs UL 300-compliant wet chemical fire suppression systems in commercial kitchens located in restaurants, hotels, hospital and school cafeterias, and banquet facilities.
Industrial Dry Chemical Fire Suppression Systems for New Constructions
Dry chemicals that were once standard in commercial kitchens are still common in storage facilities, paint booths, dip tanks, and other applications. The chemicals used in these systems may include monoammonium phosphate, sodium bicarbonate, or potassium bicarbonate. Dry chemical fire suppression is suitable for extinguishing Class A (ordinary) fires, Class B (flammable liquid) fires, and Class C (electrical) fires.

Fire Suppression Inspections & Maintenance for New Constructions in Tampa & Orlando
After installing the fire suppression system in your new construction, you’ll also need to keep it up to code well after you open your doors. To keep your new kitchen, storage facility, or paint booth current with Florida fire code standards, you must have your fire suppression system inspected semiannually by a Florida state licensed technician. Fire suppression cylinders also require six- or 12-year maintenance, depending on the type of system you have installed.
United Fire Protection can keep your system certified and current with thorough inspections every six months. Our maintenance service also gives you peace of mind, knowing that your building and the assets inside are safe from the damaging effects of fire and smoke. An inspection from one of our knowledgeable technicians includes:
- Replacing fusible links
- Confirming cylinder pressures
- Verifying shutdown and evacuation circuits
- Testing releasing circuits during a simulated discharge
- Inspecting pipes and nozzles
- Verifying hydro-test dates for cylinders and hoses
- And more!
