Viking Adds FM Approved, Braided Hose to FSC Line of Flexible Sprinkler Connections

Sunday, June 16, 2013


Hastings, Michigan, USA - Viking Corporation, a global leader in fire protection and life safety systems, has introduced a new, FM Approved, flexible sprinkler connection featuring a braided hose. The new Model FSC-28B product is offered in addition to Viking’s existing cULus Listed (non-braided) flexible sprinkler connection, Model FSC-25U which was announced last year.

Viking’s FSC line of flexible sprinkler connections features a pre-assembled, ready-to-install bracket assembly. The installation bracket provides a secure fit to the suspended ceiling grid and offers generous lateral adjustment for precisely locating sprinklers, which is particularly important for “center-of-tile ” installation requirements . Additionally, the center bracket design allows for substantial vertical adjustment to accommodate both semi-recessed and concealed sprinkler installations.

Viking’s flexible sprinkler connections are factory-assembled and ready-to-install out of the box, without additional loose parts. They are also offered pre-assembled with most of Viking’s commercial sprinklers, including Viking’s innovative extended coverage and Mirage® concealed sprinklers. When the pre-assembled product is ordered, the sprinklers are factory installed onto the flexible connections’ outlet reducer fittings. The pre-assembled drops are 100% pressure tested at the factory.

The new model FSC-28B braided flexible sprinkler connections are packaged five (5) per box and are available in standard lengths of 39-3/8” (1,000mm) and 59” (1,500mm) with either a ½ ” or ¾” NPT sprinkler connection. Additional hose lengths are available with an extended lead time.
