Tyco Model EC-25 sprinkler receives further FM Global approvals

Published:  27 April, 2012

Enhanced FM approvals provides advanced, cost-effective solutions in higher density, extended coverage applications.

According to Tyco the EC-25 sprinkler provides lower installed cost and better fire protection when compared to standard coverage sprinkler systems due to:

• Fewer branch lines and fewer sprinklers as a result of the extended coverage area

• Lower operating pressures in accordance with the S x L Spacing Rules defined by NFPA 13, Section 8.5.2

• Lowest hydraulic system demand provided in FM Global Property Loss Prevention Data Sheet 8-9 July 2011 Revision and Engineering Bulletin 06-11

• Fewer opened sprinklers and fewer consumed pallets than standard coverage sprinklers as shown in full-scale fire tests

 

James Golinveaux, Product General Manager, Water Fire Suppression, Tyco Fire Protection Products, said: ‘With the latest information from FM, the Model EC-25 Sprinkler provides the minimal water requirement, combined with the extended coverage, to offer the lowest installed cost solution for ceiling heights of 35ft (10.5m) or less. The expanded use of the Model EC-25 Sprinkler further demonstrates our commitment to provide market-leading solutions for the protection of storage facilities.’
