Amerex Zone Defense Fire Suppression Systems

The first line of defense against fire in a commercial kitchen is the fire protection system installed in the kitchen hood. The full flood/overlapping restaurant fire suppression systems were developed to solve the real world problem of how to protect a kitchen where the appliances are moved around, rolled in and out for cleaning, or replaced with different appliances to accommodate changing menus. These systems are also cost effective with medium and heavy duty cooking lines requiring greater protection.
