KP – Zone Defense

The AMEREX KP Zone Defense Restaurant Fire Suppression System adds greater flexibility by allowing kitchen appliances to be reconfigured without having to move system discharge nozzles. Because of the adaptability of the Zone Defense System, it is the most cost-effective choice over the life of the system.
