Restaurant Fire Suppression Systems
Security Fire Equipment is a factory distributor for 3 manufacturers of restaurant fire suppression systems, so we can design a system and brand that best fits your needs. Restaurant cooking equipment emissions contain vaporized grease and other fuels that can ignite during heavy commercial cooking operations. Statistics show that many restaurants never reopen after a fire, Georgia fire and insurance codes require that these hazards be covered by a wet chemical fire suppression system. Please call or e-mail our sales team for more information on how we can protect the heart of your restaurant from fire.
Amerex KP Restaurant System
The Amerex KP Restaurant System is a pre-engineered, wet chemical, stored-pressure type with a fixed nozzle agent distribution network. The system is listed by Underwriter’s Laboratories, Inc., ULC and tested to U.L. Standard 300. The system shall be designed, installed and maintained in accordance with: Amerex Part No. 20150 “Design, Installation and Maintenance Manual”, N.F.P.A. 96, N.F.P.A. 17A, local codes and ordinances by an Authorized Amerex KP Systems Distributor using factory trained personnel. Brochure
In either automatic or manual actuation the system works in this manner:
1. When a fire starts, the detection network, consisting of fusible links or pneumatic tubing, will automatically detect the fire or the manual pull station can be used, releasing a low pH agent throughout the hood, duct and onto the appliances.
2. Either method of actuation will interrupt gas or electrical power to the appliances preceding system discharge.
3. The Amerex KP agent quickly suppresses the fire and cools the fuel while securing the vapors with a smothering foam reaction.
The combination of the Amerex KP system and an Amerex Model B260 or B262 Wet Chemical extinguisher provides restaurants with a "ONE-TWO" attack against the threat of business loss due to cooking operation fires.

PyroChem Kitchen Knight II Suppression Systems
The modern commercial cooking area serves up a smorgasbord of potential fire hazards. Cooking appliances today allow for the potentially dangerous mixture of flammable oils and greases with high efficiency heat sources, creating an environment in which fire is always a threat. Ventilating systems deposit grease from exhausted vapors throughout the hood, filters and ducts. Electrical power lines and gas service lines add fuel to the hazard area, and must be shut off in case of fire. Alarms and other electrical devices must be activated.
The KITCHEN KNIGHT II system offers breakthrough technology in the industry’s most flexible and effective suppression system. The fire extinguishing agent is a potassium carbonate-based water solution that knocks the flame down, cuts off air to the burning grease and cools the hazard area to help ensure the fire stays out.
The KITCHEN KNIGHT II system has been tested and approved in accordance with the UL testing standard for kitchen cooking areas, Standard UL-300. Pyro-Chem authorized distributors have been extensively trained in system design, installation and maintenance.
Pyro-Chem continues to perform extensive research and development on KITCHEN KNIGHT II system components. Continuous improvements to virtually every aspect of the system provide affordable, effective protection for your cooking area. Brochure

Industrial & Paint Booth Fire Suppression Systems
Amerex “IS” Industrial Fire Suppression System
The Amerex “IS” Industrial Fire Suppression System uses our exclusive ABC (Model 555) dry chemical. ABC dry chemical suppresses more fire, by volume, than any other agent. ABC dry chemical has quick flame “knockdown” and can help to secure Class A fires against re-ignition. Since many hazards involve a variety of fuel sources, our ABC dry chemical, with protection against Class A (wood, paper, pulp), Class B (flammable liquids) and Class C (live electrical equipment) is the agent that is best suited for most Industrial hazards.
Always ready when you need it
The Amerex “IS” industrial system incorporates an automatic detection system that will operate in case of a fire anytime, 24/7, even if no one is present. As with the rest of the “IS” system design and philosophy, the automatic fire detection system uses fewer components which saves on installation and maintenance costs. Brochure
PyroChem Monarch Industrial Dry Chemical Fire Suppression Systems
When a PyroChem Monarch dry chemical fire suppression system is installed on process equipment or in a paint booth, a fire can be detected and extinguished with minimal loss of production downtime. Production is time, the cost to shut down a line or paint spray booth can far exceed the actual goods/material damage. Let Security Fire Equipment design a system for you and avoid costly down time.

Amerex Clean Agent System with FM200
Amerex, utilizing the industry recognized FM-200 suppression agent, has developed an affordable pre-engineered clean agent fire suppression system to protect areas with sensitive electrical equipment and valuable data. As an industry leader in innovative design of products that provide the quality and performance you expect, Amerex has developed the CPS system to be the most cost efficient clean agent system available. The modular design incorporates pre-assembled wiring harnesses and keyed locking connectors on all electrical components to assist you in a simple and confident installation. Agent tanks are available in two sizes having a diameter of ten inches making tank location in confined spaces less stressful. Tanks are charged with FM-200 in increments of two pounds in a small tank or three pounds in a larger tank for a custom installation without unnecessary expense. Electrical actuators are used for system actuation and can be reset reducing the number of components to be replaced during service after discharge.
The CPS system is designed to use schedule 40 pipe giving you easy access to the materials you need to complete the installation. Nozzles are available in three designs; corner, side wall, and center room for flexibility in system installation to protect those “challenging” areas. The Amerex CPS is monitored by an electrical control panel that has a battery back-up for 24 hour protection during power failure. Photoelectric smoke detectors are used for detection and are cross zoned to reduce the potential for unwanted system discharge. A bell and horn – strobe device alarm when fire conditions are present. All electrical circuits are supervised and factory terminated.
