Johnson Controls, the global leader for smart, healthy and sustainable buildings, has announced the expansion of its Tyco corridor sprinkler family with the launch of the Series RFII-C Royal Flush II Quick Response Concealed Pendent sprinkler. Along with the recently released EC-8C Light Hazard Quick Response sprinkler, the corridor sprinkler family offers the cost-saving benefits of needing fewer sprinklers at lower design pressure compared to standard coverage sprinklers.
These UL Listed sprinklers are specially designed for long, narrow spaces and offer a maximum coverage area of 28ft by 10ft (8.5m by 3.1m). Cost-effective and designed for quick, easy installation, these sprinklers are intended for use in NFPA-13 compliant automatic sprinkler systems. The corridor sprinkler family helps serve the Johnson Controls OpenBlue mission of supporting healthy people, healthy places and a healthy planet.
Series RFII-C Royal Flush II sprinkler
The Series RFII-C 5.6 K-factor Royal Flush II Quick Response Concealed Pendent sprinkler features a concealed design, allowing for uninterrupted aesthetics in hallways and corridors. To achieve this decorative look, the 3mm bulb-type sprinkler features a flat cover plate which hides the unit. Aesthetics can be further enhanced with a variety of colours and finishes for the cover plates.
Each sprinkler is compatible with a cover plate and retainer assembly and a sprinkler and support cup assembly to allow easier system testing and servicing. The RFII-C also allows for 0.5in (12.7mm) of vertical adjustment to provide flexibility in the length of fixed piping for the sprinkler drops.
Series EC-8C sprinkler
Ideal for areas with a finished ceiling, the EC-8C 8.0 K-factor Light Hazard, Quick Response Recessed Pendent sprinkler offers an orifice optimized for a 0.1 gal/min/ft2 commercial light-hazard design density at pressures as low as 8.3psi (0.6 bar). There are two options for the EC-8C: the two-piece Style 30 recessed escutcheon, which provides up to 0.5in (12.7mm) of total adjustment from the flush pendent position, or the Style 40, which provides 0.75in (19.05mm) of vertical adjustment. This sprinkler also features corrosion-resistant coatings.
‘With the expansion of the corridor sprinkler family, Johnson Controls is giving customers the options they need to help keep their facilities safe while also creating a desirable appearance and meeting their cost expectations,’ said Bob Cordell, global product manager, Johnson Controls.
