New ESFR Pendent Sprinkler with 25.2 K-Factor
HASTINGS, MI - The Viking Corporation, global manufacturer of fire protection systems, has added a 25.2K ESFR pendent sprinkler to its current ESFR line. An extension of prior ESFR technology, this product provides more options and flexibility for the most challenging storage applications.
This roof-mounted K25.2 sprinkler meets FM guidelines for protecting buildings to 45 ft. (13,7m) in height that have storage up to 40 ft. (12,2m) high. It can protect most common storage materials, including severe-challenge fires of palletized and solid pile storage, from Class I commodities to rubber tires.
With its higher K-factor, the K25.2 provides ESFR performance with lower end head pressures than 14K ESFR sprinklers. As a result, smaller - and less expensive - pipe, fittings and hangers can be used, and costly system fire pumps can be downsized or eliminated. The guidelines for installing K25.2 sprinklers allows maximum deflector-to-ceiling distance of 18 in. (456mm), and as the overall length of the Viking sprinkler is about 1/3 smaller than comparable sprinklers, this adds up to an easier, more flexible, cost-effective installation.
With its sturdy link design and protective shipping caps, the K25.2 is less susceptible to damage during transport and installation. And once installed, these sprinklers are far less vulnerable to damage than rack-mounted sprinkler, further enhancing their long-term dependability.
Viking is a leader in the manufacture and distribution of innovative fire protection equipment. Their products are sold in over 70 countries worldwide through an integrated distribution network.
