Tyco Fire Protection Products has launched its re-engineered line of K80 TY-B and TY-FRB Pendent, Upright, and Conventional series sprinklers.
These new models are slightly different in appearance from the existing models, but are equivalent in fit and function, and importantly provide the same trusted and proven quality expected of any Tyco manufactured product.
The new model sprinklers will begin phasing into distribution this month, but will not be complete until the inventory of the existing model is sold. This means that the arrival of the new model sprinkler in a specific type, temperature and finish will depend on inventory of that item within your region.
While there are a few minor differences between the new and current sprinklers, which are detailed in the downloadable engineering letter and conversion chart, and new datasheets (see links below), our new model sprinkler may be installed and used as a direct substitute for the current sprinkler it replaces (important: not for use with Style 10 escutcheon). In addition, through the re-design we have been able to absorb a large part of the cost increases that we have been facing over the last year; as a result there will only be a limited price adjustment on these sprinklers.
Wouter Bossink, Director of Marketing FP EMEA said; “The new sprinklers will ultimately have equivalent listings and approvals as the current line; however at this time some are still pending. For the latest information on all approvals, your local sales representative will be able to advise.”
He added; “Please be assured that this new line of sprinklers have undergone and passed the equivalent laboratory testing requirements as the original line of TY-B and TY-FRB K-80 sprinklers, and meet all of Tyco's stringent Q/A procedures as well as ISO9001:2008 Quality Assurance requirements.”
