Installation of Micro Switches used in Fire Suppression Systems in NYC Restaurants

Staten Island Construction specializes in the installation of Micro Switches used in Fire Suppression Systems in Restaurants throughout the Five Boroughs of NYC & the Tri-State Area.

A Micro Switch added to your Fire Suppression System’s control box performs several tasks. If your fire suppression system is triggered due to a fire in your restaurant, the make up air fan’s power will be cut off so as not to feed the fire with fresh air. Your Exhaust fan will continue running to remove smoke and fumes from the fire, out of the kitchen, limiting damage. The other task of the Micro Switch is to shut off any electrical appliances under the hood.

The fire department in NYC and counties in the tri-state area requires microswitch systems if you have electrical appliances under your hood or make up air fans. Each system is wired differently given the many configurations of Restaurant Kitchens. In addition to be an experienced electrician, one needs to understand the mechanical system of the exhaust system, make up air, ductwork, and understanding of the electrical appliances under the hood. Staten Island Construction designs and builds restaurants and has the knowledge to install your hood, exhaust fans, and microswitches in addition to building out your next restaurant.
