Johnson Controls Expands Line of Tyco Commercial Fire Products With Concealed Sidewall Sprinkler
The Tyco RFII-HSW concealed sprinkler features a decorative flat-plate cover that conceals the sprinkler within a wall.
MILWAUKEE — Johnson Controls announces the expansion of its line of commercial fire sprinklers. Designed to deliver safe and dependable fire protection, the Tyco RFII horizontal sidewall (HSW) concealed sprinkler offers an aesthetically pleasing solution for modern commercial building environments, the company says.
The new Tyco commercial concealed sprinkler has a sleek design with a high-pressure rating. The 5.6 K-factor sprinkler features a decorative flat-plate cover that conceals the sprinkler within a wall and discreetly blends in with modern building environments.
“Today’s commercial buildings require fine aesthetic details to create comfortable, productive and safe environments for all occupants,” says Bob Cordell, global product manager, Johnson Controls. “This sprinkler meets modern design demands while providing an impressive pressure rating and other features that help ensure dependable building protection 24/7.”
With an industry-leading maximum system pressure rating of 250 psi (17.2 bar), the RFII-HSW is intended to protect commercial buildings such as hotels, retail spaces, office buildings, banquet facilities, conference rooms and hospitals, according to the company.
Customers can select cover plate assemblies in a variety of colors to further enhance interior building design. In addition to its aesthetic appeal, the cover plate also prevents building occupants from hanging objects like bags and clothing on the sprinkler that may otherwise cause an unintended operation.
The RFII-HSW concealed sprinkler is designed for installation along a wall or the side of a beam. It fits in a typical two-by-four stud frame and sheetrock wall structure, giving contractors and facility personnel additional installation flexibility, Johnson Controls says.
It also is UL and C-UL listed for use with automatic sprinkler systems and features an ordinary sprinkler temperature rating of 160 °F (71 °C), alongside a 139 °F (38 °C) rated cover plate. An intermediate temperature rated sprinkler with a temperature rating of 212 °F (100 °C) is also being offered, alongside a 165 °F (74 °C) cover plate.
