Victaulic Introduces FireLock™ Installation-Ready™ Fittings

Posted on February 9, 2016

Victaulic, the world’s leading manufacturer of mechanical pipe joining and fire protection systems, introduces the new FireLockTM Installation-Ready™ Fittings (No. 101 90° Elbow, 102 Tee and 103 45° Elbow). Designed for fire protection systems, the fittings require less fasteners, resulting in faster, simpler installation while maintaining a safe and efficient jobsite.

The simplicity of the FireLock EZ™ Rigid Coupling – Style 009N, combined with the convenience of a single-unit design solution, Victaulic FireLock Installation-Ready™ Fittings provide fast, easy pipe connections with no need to disassemble. Standard grooved pipe and accessories are joined by simply pushing the Installation-Ready elbow onto the pipe and tightening three bolts, versus the standard four, therefore removing prep and lifting of two additional steps; installing in less than half the time of conventional fittings.

Victaulic FireLock Installation-Ready Fittings reduce the number of parts on a jobsite, minimizing the jobsite inventory and material handling by reducing the number of times the sprinkler fitter needs to go up and down the lift or ladder. In addition to less parts, the Installation-Ready fittings have no loose parts to drop or lose minimizing jobsite inventory and material handling on-site, therefore reducing the risk of personnel injury.

“Victaulic’s FireLock Installation-Ready Couplings revolutionized the planning and implementation of fire protection systems where safety, installation speed, efficiency and reliability are dominant,” said Susan Schierwagen, Victaulic Director of Couplings and Suppression Systems. “Installation-Ready fittings are the logical next step for our customers in the advancement of the technology’s innovation. Because the new one piece FireLock Installation-Ready Fittings require fewer steps to install, the result is consistently faster pipe joints, and up to 75% less jobsite inventory, allowing contractors to optimize crew size and to better manage their labor risks, making it an overall more reliable solution.”

Victaulic FireLock Installation-Ready Fittings No. 101, 102, 103 are available in 1 ¼ – 2 ½ inch/DN32-DN65 sizes.
