AMEREX offers two appliance protection schemes to meet commercial kitchen needs.
KP – Appliance Specific
With the AMEREX KP Appliance Specific Restaurant Fire Suppression System you get appliance-specific coverage that generally offers lower initial cost. The KP Appliance Specific System is the ideal choice in commercial kitchens where appliance location is fixed, such as in fast-food chains, casual dining, cruise ships, and school cafeterias.
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. The KP-ZD System was designed with fine dining, culinary schools, military facilities, hotels, and hospitals in mind.
Amerex worked with Construct Connect to create commercial kitchen system specifications to fit the needs of spec writers, specifiers, architects, and other construction professionals.
