Tyco introduces model RM-1 Riser manifold
Tyco Fire Protection Products introduces the Model RM-1 Riser Manifold. The RM-1, available for commercial and residential uses, features a proprietary connection between the manifold and the Potter alarm switch. The connection has a watertight, flat surface design which helps prevent leaks.
Other features of the RM-1 Riser Manifold include a pressure gauge, alarm test orifice, drain, and sight glass housed in a single assembly for use in NFPA 13 commercial sprinkler systems and in NFPA 13D/13R residential sprinkler systems. The variety of sizes and grooved end connections allow cost effective and easy transition to check valves, control valves, and system piping.
With a maximum working pressure of 300 psi, the Model RM-1 Riser Manifold may be installed either in a horizontal (flow switch on top) or vertical (flow going up) orientation, for both single sprinkler rises and floor control in high-rises. It is U-, ULC-listed and FM-approved.
In order to assist in installation and operation, technical data and other product information can easily be accessed with a smart device using QR code technology located on the flow switch. To access the information, simply scan the code using a QR app, select and download information from the RM-1 product site.
