Product Description

The VID Fire-Kill Model APS – KIP is a system utilizing very small open watermist nozzles designed specifically for the protection of attics and other such large rooms with sloped ceilings. The system is a deluge system and is designed to cover floors underneath sloped ceilings up to 140 degrees. The system is designed to cover up to 6,5m horizontally to both sides from the installation point using only 7 bar water pressure. The design saves cost on system pipes and fittings, as well as the installation cost itself.

Product Approval & Scope
