FireLock™ IGS Style V9 Sprinkler Coupling and Grooved Sprinklers Now Available for Exposed Ceiling Applications

Victaulic announces the fire industry’s first Installation-Ready™ sprinkler that is UL-listed and FM-approved with the launch of its FireLock™ IGS Style V9 Sprinkler Coupling and line of FireLock™ IGS grooved sprinklers in North and South America. Created to replace threads on both sprinkler outlets and sprinklers, this mechanical connection redefines sprinkler system design and installation in exposed applications, particularly the storage and warehouse market. The innovative coupling has one-bolt, is captured onto sprinklers with a connection size of ½-inch, ¾-inch or 1-inch, and transitions to 1-inch allowing for the standardization of 1-inch IGS outlets.

“The storage, warehouse and distribution center market has undergone significant growth and transformation, creating a need for fire suppressions that are both easily installed and reconfigured,” said Daniel Wake, Victaulic Product Manager. “Victaulic already has a unique portfolio of products and services that offer value and versatility from the street to the sprinkler head, and the Installation-Ready sprinkler technology just compounds the advantages of using Victaulic. Working in the industry from the ground up for almost 20 years, this is the most exciting product development process I’ve been fortunate to take part in.”
