Johnson Controls Releases RM-2 Base Riser Manifold Models
The new base models from Johnson Controls are designed to serve as cost-effective and easy transition arrangement solutions to help better control valves and piping.
MILWAUKEE — Johnson Controls, a global manufacturer of healthy building technologies, has announced the expansion of its Tyco RM-2 Riser Manifold product offering with the launch of two RM-2 Base models.
Johnson Controls states that its latest products complement the fully integrated Tyco RM-2 Riser Manifold. The riser manifolds support fire safety by supplying, monitoring and regulating water flow to a building’s fire suppression piping system.
The new base models are designed to serve as cost-effective and easy transition arrangement solutions to help better control valves and piping in a range of commercial buildings and high-rises.
“We’ve engineered the RM-2 product collection around the needs of contractors in the field,” says Martin Schulte-Frankenfeld, director global product management, Johnson Controls. “Whether they are specifying products for commercial or residential systems, they will find our now complete RM-2 offering to be more dependable, more flexible and more cost efficient.”
Tyco RM-2 Products UL Listed
The company explains two new models join the fully integrated Tyco RM-2 Riser Manifold, equipped with a TD-2 test and drain valve which achieves a tight seal using a plunger-type valve. The valve significantly reduces product wear and deterioration. The test and drain valve also includes an integrated, fully adjustable (100 psi / 6,9 bar to 310 psi / 21,4 bar) pressure relief valve for simplified testing.
The new commercial RM-2 Base with TD-2 test and drain valve and residential RM-2 Base with either TD-2 or ball drain valve feature a built-in waterflow alarm switch, pressure gauge and drain valve to simplify installation, testing and operation with a cost-efficient advantage.
Johnson Controls points out the fully-integrated Tyco RM-2 and the new RM-2 Base models are pre-assembled for convenience. The RM-2 Base is UL Listed and FM Approved, while the fully-integrated RM-2 is UL Listed and components are FM Approved.
According to Johnson Controls, the compact design allows the products to install horizontally or vertically to provide compatibility with both single-sprinkler risers and floor controls within high-rise structures. Configurable coupling assembly of the original RM-2, an optional flexible drain hose, and residential ball valve drain pressure relief kit offer maximum design flexibility to meet a variety of building requirements.
Tyco RM-2 Base products feature all the necessary alarms, pressure gauges and check valve equipment to help comply with NFPA 13, NFPA 13D and NFPA 13R standards for commercial and residential fire sprinkler system applications.
