Victaulic has announced the launch of its Aquaflex sprinkler fitting range in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and India, which are used for fire protection where combustible gasses may be present.

Aquaflex stainless-steel sprinkler fittings are suitable for commercial suspended and hard ceilings and for round or square duct work.

The fittings are available in two different types – a braided system (FM Approved) and unbraided system (cULus 2443 Listed), with system availability depending on region and on application.

The range comes pre-assembled and consists of a flexible stainless-steel hose, available in 790-1,830mm (31-72in) lengths, a reducer for connecting the sprinkler and a branch nipple for attachment to the piping system.

An installation-ready bracket is also included when ordered as a kit.

The bracket provides three-dimensional positioning of the sprinkler and secures mounting to the ceiling grid without tools, allowing instant, centre-of-tile sprinkler positioning.

‘The Aquaflex 1-BEE2 bracket is designed to firmly grip the ceiling grid, locking the sprinkler into proper operational position,’ said Nick Scull, UK fire protection market manager.

‘The adjustable open-gate centre bracket saves time and money during installation by allowing for easy pressure testing of the system and final placement of the sprinkler head after the ceiling grid is installed,’ he added.

A variety of optional accessories are now available including the Victaulic 922 Firelock Outlet Tee – for fast, mechanical hole-cut branch-line installation.

The Aquaflex hose, 1-BEE2 bracket and other accessories are also available for purchase separately.
