Fire Suppression Advice Needed!

I was just advised that I need to install a fire suppression system on my food truck. I have received estimates from $1900 to $2700 installed.
 
On line, firesuppressionsystemsinabox.com has a calculator and provided me an estimate for $1250 for equipment only. I have  two fryers, a grill, and a six burner stove on board. They offer to recommend a local installer. 
 
Has anyone had experience with this company? Any helpful thoughts or reports on you experience with installing a fire suppression for your truck or trailer?
 
Thanks in advance. 
 
Michael

    Check the codes in your area. I am in California and mine must be installed by an installer who can certify the system. It also has to be inspected on an annual basis by a certified inspector, and some of it has to be replaced on a regular basis (by a certified tech of course). So before you toss your money out the window check your codes.

    Hi Michael,
    $1900-2700 is a steal for equipment and install. We were looking at $2800 to $6500 on our second build. We since have been able to acquire several hoods from a sheet medal companies liquidation auction and several exhaust fans used for $200 a piece. The build out for the suppression parts and labor still has us a $2000. So I'm waiting to find a good price on the second hand equipment, and buy a recharging canister, to cut it down to just labor for install. But I'll send this link to my installer and see if I can get a deal for a smaller system.
