What Is VicFlex?

Victaulic has revolutionized the sprinkler fitting market with its introduction of VicFlex™, flexible sprinkler fittings that replace threaded hard pipe drops and arm-overs.  With the tightest bends in the industry (2" UL approval) and the highest number of bends allowed, VicFlex™ flexible fire sprinkler fittings provide sprinkler installation on suspended and hard-lid ceilings utilizing a flexible, stainless steel hose.  

How Much Faster is VicFlex™?

Contractors are installing as many as 60 drops per man per day with VicFlex™.  Vicflex™ represents the fastest way to connect the fire sprinkler to the branch line.  

  • No trips to the threader, no set up, no clean up
  • Center of Tile every time.  No measuring
  • No loose pipe nipples, elbows, reducing couplings, hangers, or close nipples

What Other Benefits Does The VicFlex™ Flexible Fire Sprinkler Fittings System Offer?

VicFlex™ flexible fire sprinkler fittings offer fast and dependable installation, durable performance and are cost effective for maintenance and retrofit applications.

  • VicFlex™ is installed to the ceiling and therefore moves with the ceiling as it settles, maintaining the ceiling plane
  • VicFlex™ fittings are manufactured from Stainless Steel and are corrosion resistant
  • Less Jobsite coordination.  The VicFlex™ AB1 bracket reduces jobsite coordination as most ceiling tiles can be installed with the bracket already in place  
  • Reduce material handling.  Up to a third less weight than hard pipe arm overs

A full line of flexible, time and cost-saving solutions
