HASTINGS, MI - Viking, a global leader in the fire protection industry, now offers straight-through Deluge and Flow Control Valves in 3" nominal sizes to complement their already available line of 4", 6" and 8" straight-through valves. Viking also offers a full line of angle style valves, from 1-1/2" through 6", providing the most complete and flexible line of Deluge and Flow Control Valves available. All of these valves utilize the same time-tested, trouble-free design that has been the industry standard for decades.
