How To Save Time & Reduce Mess During a Sprinkler System Retrofit

Posted on March 29, 2018

“Aside from how clean it was, utilizing the Victaulic FireLock™ IGS and VicFlex™ solution also helped us reduce a large portion of both pipe-preparation and installation time.” – Steve Kirby, co-owner and vice president of Horizon Fire Protection, INC.

Kirby is referring to a tenant improvement project in a Chesapeake, Virginia mall where Victaulic fire protection solutions were used to both save time and eliminate the mess associated with threading small diameter sprinkler pipe. In fact, Kirby was able to set up one of Victaulic’s latest tool innovations, the RG2100 Roll Grooving Tool, in the finished store space they were working in. A sight that would never be witnessed if they were threading pipe with oil and producing pipe shavings. Working closely with our customers, it’s great to see how job sites are improving every day thanks to our products.

Read here for the full story of Kirby’s experience completing the project four times faster than if it were threaded. This was originally published in National Fire Sprinkler Magazine’s January/February Issue focused on retrofit innovations.
