Consulting-Specifying Engineer has announced the 2017 Product of the Year winners and awarded the VicFlex™ Dry Sprinkler Style VS1 Silver in the Fire, Life Safety, Mass Notification category.

Consulting-Specifying Engineer accepted nominations in February 2017, then announced finalists in April of 2017 including six finalists in the Fire, Life Safety, Mass Notification category. Within the six finalists Victaulic was proud that both the VicFlex Dry Sprinkler Style VS1 and the VicFlex Series AH2-CC Braided Hose with Captured Coupling were recognized.

As Consulting-Specifying Engineer said, “each of these winning innovations has been designed to improve quality, lengthen lifecycles, and increase efficiencies.”
