Topic: Residential Grade Fire Suppression – Code Changes and New Technology
Speaker: Sean Duffy, DENLAR Fire Protection
“We are all familiar with the requirements involved in protecting cooking equipment within a commercial kitchen. …but what happens when a residential-grade appliance is used in a non-production commercial environment. The product category surrounding residential-grade fire suppression has been officially recognized for use in code-based commercial applications. In addition, major technological advances have greatly increased the capabilities of these systems, further bolstering their commercial viability. This presentation will cover: history and background behind the UL300A product category, available technology (listed and non-listed) within the product category and appropriate commercial applications of a Residential-Grade Fire Suppression System.
Mr. Duffy is widely recognized as the Lead Ambassador to the UL300A product category. He has made significant contributions to the code development process, culminating in the 2012 Amendment to The NFPA Life Safety Code; the first time this category has been formally addressed. His travels take him to every major market in the US, educating building and code officials on the new state of Residential-Grade Fire Suppression.
Mr. Duffy serves as Vice President for DENLAR Fire Protection, the industry’s only manufacturer of a fully-integrated fire suppression range hood system. He has spent his career specializing in consumer product representation and spearheading new technology across multiple industries. Mr. Duffy attended Worcester State University in Worcester, MA.”
