Johnson Controls Introduces Tyco Series EC-8C Extended Coverage Sprinkler
Designed for corridors and hallways, Johnson Controls says the sprinkler offers the cost-saving benefits of using fewer sprinklers at lower design pressure.
MILWAUKEE — Johnson Controls announces the release of the Tyco Series EC-8C 8.0 K-factor pendent sprinkler for corridors and hallways.
The new extended coverage, quick-response sprinkler offers low nozzle design pressure due to its 8.0K orifice optimized for 0.1 gallon-per-minute-per-square-foot commercial, light-hazard design density.
With a maximum coverage area of 28 feet by 10 feet, the sprinkler offers the cost-saving benefits of using fewer sprinklers at lower design pressure compared to standard-coverage sprinklers, according to the company.
“Protecting corridors and hallways in buildings is crucial because these areas serve as a means of egress for occupants during a fire event,” says Bob Cordell, global product manager, Johnson Controls. “This new extended coverage, low-pressure sprinkler gives customers superior protection for long, narrow, commercial, light-hazard spaces.”
Well-suited for commercial applications, including hotels, hospitals, schools, offices and data centers, the UL Listed Series EC-8C sprinkler is intended for use in automatic sprinkler systems designed in accordance with NFPA 13.
The sprinkler offers two separate temperature ratings – 155°F and 200°F – and is available with two recessed pendent escutcheon options.
The recessed pendent version is intended for use in areas with a finished ceiling and can be used with the two-piece Style 30 or 40 recessed escutcheons.
The Style 30 recessed escutcheon provides up to a half-inch of total adjustment from the flush pendent position, while the Style 40 provides a three-quarter-inch vertical adjustment from the flush position. Johnson Controls says the adjustment space allows for more flexibility in cutting the fixed pipe drop to which the sprinkler attaches.
