A Class "K" portable fire extinguisher is required for kitchens equipped with wet chemical fixed fire suppression systems. They must be installed within 30 ft. of the vent hood in a location/direction leading to an exit.
ATTENTION: Kitchens with existing 40B:C dry chemical extinguishers shall have them replaced with a Class K listed unit when they are due for either a 6-yr. maintenance inspection and/or a hydrostatic test.
Install extinguishers in highly visible and accessible locations, never in a dead-end area, and always try to place them near an exit pathway or at an exit(s). Mount 4" off floor to a maximum of 5 ft. to the top of the fire ext. (HINT: About waist high is perfect.) "FIRE EXTINGUISHER" signs may need to be posted to properly identify where the units are located if they're not highly visible.
