From portable fire extinguishers to fixed fire suppression systems, Canadian Industrial Fire Protection Co Inc. has the expertise and equipment to provide a wide range of products and services for all of your fire protection needs.
Portable fire extinguishers are intended as a first line of defense to cope with fires of limited size. They are needed even if the property is equipped with automatic sprinklers, water standpipe and hose, or other fixed protection equipment. Every facility (commercial, industrial, office, etc.,) is required to have fire extinguishers regardless of any other type of fire protection provided.
Due to the various classes of fire (A, B, C, D and K), it is necessary to provide the correct type of fire extinguisher for the site-specific hazard. It is also necessary for extinguishers to be positioned within the travel distance guidelines for the hazard and its potential severity. Various types of agents are used to fight specific types of fires. These include Water, Dry Chemical, CO2, Purple K, Metal-X, FE36, etc. Each of these carries a different rating and has different characteristics that are specific to the class of fire it is used to protect.
Following is a description of the various fire class types:
Class A Fire Extinguishers – used for any fire that leaves an ash, such as wood, paper or excelsior
Class B Fire Extinguishers – used for flammable liquid fires
Class C Fire Extinguishers – used for electrical fires
Class D Fire Extinguishers – used for specific burning metals
Class K Fire Extinguishers – used for fires resulting from combustiblecooking media (oils and fats)

Helping you meet code requirements for Inspection and Maintenance:
According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), fire extinguishers are to be inspected at 30-day intervals (monthly) and are also required to have a thorough maintenance performed every year. Canadian Industrial Fire Protection Co Inc. can help you keep your facility in compliance. Our fully trained, efficient technicians will regularly inspect your extinguishers and perform the necessary maintenance to ensure that they are in top working order.
A building's fire alarm and/or emergency voice communication system is the electrical component of the site's life safety equipment. These systems are intended to detect fire and combustion products in an emergency situation ad to either automatically or manually alert building occupants to initiate evacuation and to notify the fire department that a fire situation either exists or potentially may exist within the building. In general terms, these systems consist of detection devices such as smoke detectors, heat detectors and pull stations, plus audible alarm devices such as bells, horns or speakers in the case of voice communication systems.
The Ontario Fire Code mandates that regular annual inspection, repair and maintenance on the fire alarm and emergency voice communication systems be completed by suitably qualified firms and technicians. Additionally, we also offer Installation of new fire alarm and EVC systems, plus retrofit and upgrading of existing obsolete equipment.

We offer complete annual inspection and testing, as well as remedial repair work to correct deficiencies in existing sprinkler systems, plus 24/7 emergency service calls.

Over 1,000 times a day, fires ignite in commercial kitchens. The failure of a suppression system to operate properly will prove very costly. With today's high-temperature appliances using oil and solid fuels, it's essential that kitchen fire suppression systems stay in good operating condition.
A restaurant fire suppression system is designed to provide fire protection for restaurant cooking appliances, exhaust hoods, and ducts as defined by the National Fire Protection Association NFPA 17A – Standard for Wet Chemical Extinguishing Systems, and NFPA 96 – Standard for Ventilation Control and Fire Protection of Commercial Cooking Operations. These systems are pre-engineered and consist of mechanical and electrical components for installation by an authorized distributor.

Emergency and exit lighting are critical elements for safe escape in an emergency.
These fixtures illuminate the way toward the means of egress during power outages. National safety codes require emergency illumination to be provided for not less than 90 minutes (60 in Canada) in the event of the failure of normal lighting. Canadian Industrial Fire Protection Co Inc. can equip your facilities with emergency lighting systems that ensure you are code-compliant.
Code-compliance requires monthly and annual testing.
Any loss resulting from a bulb failure or unit malfunction is too high a price to pay. Canadian Industrial Fire Protection Co Inc. offers test and inspection to keep your emergency lighting systems code-compliant and ready to function when needed. Emergency and exit lighting equipment with battery backup is required to be inspected on a monthly basis for not less than 30 seconds, and a 30 minute full function test is required on an annual basis per NFPA standards. Only safe practices and policies supported by the NFPA standard are used when testing and inspecting your equipment.
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) states.
A functional test shall be conducted on every required emergency lighting system at 30-day intervals for not less than 30 seconds. An annual test shall be conducted on every required battery-powered emergency lighting system. Equipment shall be fully operational for the duration of the test. Written records of visual inspections and tests shall be kept by the owner for inspection by the authority having jurisdiction.
