Tyco Fire Protection Products, a global leader in fire suppression technologies, announces enhancements to existing UL Listing of its ESFR-25 Pendent Sprinkler in storage occupancies. With the specific application listing, the ESFR-25 Sprinkler provides advanced, cost-effective solutions for storage applications with up to 14.6m ceiling heights.
The ESFR-25 Sprinkler features key benefits which help to ensure lower installed costs and superior fire protection performance:
• Higher ceiling-only protection, which eliminates the need for in-rack sprinklers for protection of class I through cartoned unexpanded group A plastics in various storage arrangements
• Lower minimum operating pressure than other ceiling only alternatives
“Major retailers, engineering, and construction firms approached Tyco about extending the ceiling only protection of our Model ESFR-25 above the 13.7m limit in NFPA 13,” stated Wouter Bossink, director of marketing (EMEA), Water Fire Protection Products, Tyco Fire Protection Products.
“The need to more efficiently use space in storage facilities along with changes in roof truss configurations drove the need for higher ceiling-only protection. The product management team at Tyco, working with UL, was able to respond to these needs providing a specific application listing for the ESFR-25 sprinkler.”
Design criteria for the new listing and detailed technical information on the ESFR-25 sprinkler can be found in technical datasheet TFP312, which is available at www.tyco-fire.com. More information can be obtained from local Tyco representatives.
