Even today, when it comes to designing and building modern fire sprinkler systems, there is a constant balance between cost, coverage and performance. Managing the expectations of building owners, contractors and residents can be a tough challenge. It does not have to be.
Introducing BlazeMaster CPVC, the fire sprinkler pipe and fittings that cut down on costly installations, as well as difficult conversations, with property owners and residents. Here’s how it works.
What is BlazeMaster CPVC?
CPVC has been expertly engineered into the fire-safety material that is ideal for modern times. It has inherent heat and flame resistance, superior corrosion resistance when compared to metallic systems and, crucially, high standards of sustainability when it comes to manufacture, installation and performance.
Lubrizol produces raw CPVC material to exceptional standards. An international network of trusted licensed manufacturers produce the BlazeMaster pipe and fittings installers use today and now, BlazeMaster CPVC has become the most specified non-metallic fire sprinkler material in the world.
Facts about BlazeMaster CPVC:
- It installs quickly, quietly and securely
- It won’t sustain a flame
- It inherently resists pitting and corrosion
- It resists microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC)
- It is lightweight and durable
- It limits smoke generation
- It requires less space for installation
What does world-class fire protection look like?
Handling – BlazeMaster CPVC is lightweight and easy to handle, so unlike steel, it doesn’t require as much workspace for installation and installs much faster. Installers can work quickly because they only need hand tools to cut the light manoeuvrable pipe.
Installation – Building a system is straightforward, too. The solvent cement is applied with a dauber to create joints between pipe and fittings that bond the CPVC at a molecular level, this method strengthens the system and doesn’t restrict water flow.
Performance – Thanks to its hydraulic capability, you can use smaller-diameter pipes without compromising on performance. This is because the pipe maintains the Hazen-Williams C factor of 150 throughout the life of the system.
Specifying BlazeMaster CPVC in the Middle East
Fire safety regulations are continually changing. It is therefore important to keep up with the latest standards and practices so you can specify and design fire-safety systems that meet local Civil Defence requirements. BlazeMaster CPVC is already approved for use in some countries in the Middle East.
BlazeMaster Fire Protection Systems specialise in industry-leading training, education, research and development, supporting fire-safety system designers at every stage of the project. Today, the definitive guide to CPVC fire-sprinkler specification is available to everyone.
