Default GFCI receps in commercial kitchen

Is the code requirement different for GFCIs in a commercial kitchen than a residential kitchen?

Yes, all receptacles in a commercial kitchen must be GFCI protected, whereas in a residential kitchen it's only required for a countertop and all receptacles within a 6' radius of a sink.

I doubt it on commercal kitchens but I maybe wrong unless it was in effect for dammed 17 cycle .,,

How fast Mac can answer that something if he can get up fast before the high tide peaks out.

It is morning in my spot .,,

Yes and they must be " readily accessible " so nothing behind equipment.

Yes 17 code will extend to all recpt in kitchen
120
208 single and 3 phase.

Remember who sits on code panels.
Engineers
Lawyers
Manufacturers reps
So the manufacturers must be coming out with some new **** that we will be required to buy.

Talk about a make work requirement.

Nuisance trips galore with that flick of a pen.

Many time it can be justifed the cost of buying the alarm in cooler/freezer apps justifed the cost of spoilage plus the downtime to clean that out.. ( ya should know those big cooler are big pain in arse with it )

That only applies to dwelling units, not commercial occupancies.
