Even so, after seeing the promo video, I wouldn't want to be anywhere near the fire putting it out without a certain level of PPE. Wand or not, there is a good deal of pressure stored in that extinguisher (believe the K's run at 100psi...) that is going to come out with a good deal of force. Won't argue that it's going to distance you to a certain degree, but for the average staff in an establishment, I'm not thinking it's far enough.

And the long handled wands are no longer permitted on the K Class because people were sticking them right into the oil in a fryer and then releasing it. You can imagine the reaction that would have. If you see a long handled hose on a K Class in a kitchen it is not permitted.
The reason why you pull the special suppression system under the kitchen hood first, it should put out the fire, if the fire is still burning then use the K class extinguisher to put it out. The reason why you dont use the k class 1st, it is a back up only. It ownly has a limited amount of fluid and should ownly be used as back up. If you use it first and you run out of chemical and the fire is still burning, now the fire has gotten larger before you pull the hood system. Thanks
