System Answers Freezing Concerns
LANSDALE, Pa. - Tyco Fire Protection Products (Tyco) announces the release of its RAPID RESPONSE® Residential Dry Pipe System. This system is specifically engineered to provide homebuilders with the only integrated solution for NFPA 13D applications in areas that are subject to freezing.
RAPID RESPONSE provides builders with several advantages, including efficient sourcing, lower system cost and UL approval. It is the only complete line of residential fire sprinkler system components in the industry, providing homebuilders with one point of contact to meet any design or installation demand. Specific to the new Residential Dry Pipe System, Tyco's patented SprinkFDT design software allows for water delivery times to be determined prior to field installations, ultimately lowering overall system costs.
The heart of the RAPID RESPONSE Residential Dry Pipe System is the Model RCP-1 Residential Control Panel, which contains pre-programmed controls, an enclosed air compressor and system performance gauges. UL listed, the control panel is pre-assembled for quick installation and easy system design.
The components of the system are all also UL-listed for use in this application. Innovative residential and dry-type residential sprinklers have undergone rigorous testing to meet UL1626 fire test criteria, including a 15-second delay for water delivery as required for use in dry pipe systems. Tyco BlazeMaster® pipe and fittings offer the only complete line of UL-rated CPVC products in the fire protection industry.
