Hastings, Michigan, USA – Viking Corporation, a global leader in fire protection and life safety systems, is pleased to introduce a new cULus Listed flexible sprinkler connection. The new Model FSC-25U is a complete assembly that provides a faster, easier installation of sprinklers in suspended tile ceilings, when compared to hard-piped sprinkler drops. Viking’s Model FSC-25U also offers generous amounts of lateral and vertical adjustment for precisely locating sprinklers in “center-of-tile” installations.
The new flexible sprinkler connection features a redesigned, factory-assembled attachment bracket that is ready to install out of the box, without additional loose parts. The product’s innovative “collar-style” center bracket locates and secures the sprinkler in the required position within the ceiling grid, while also providing ample vertical adjustment to accommodate flush, semi-recessed, and concealed-style sprinklers. The Model FSC-25U uses a corrugated, stainless steel flexible hose (unbraided) and is rated to a maximum working pressure of 200 psi (14 bar).
Viking’s new flexible sprinkler connections, which are packaged five (5) per box, are available in standard lengths of 39-3/8” (1000mm) and 59” (1500mm) with either a ½” or ¾” NPT sprinkler connection.
