Wednesday, September 23, 2020 - 11am


Hastings, Michigan – The Viking Corporation announces the availability of FM Approved sprinkler guards designed to keep ESFR sprinklers safe from damage in areas with high human mechanical activity. The new Model EG-100 guards ensure that the sprinklers are protected in various applications, such as rack storage, where damage to low elevation sprinklers is likely to occur.

Specifically designed with retrofit installation in mind, the new ESFR sprinkler guards feature a hardwire cage that completely encases the sprinkler. With a simple hinged clamshell design and a single Torx set screw, the guards allow for quick and efficient installation on Viking’s 1” NPT ESFR sprinklers.

The guards are available in chrome or painted red finishes and feature a 3-5/8” (95 mm) length and diameter. Model EG-100 sprinkler guards are compatible with sprinkler models VK506 (K22), VK510 (K25) and VK514 (K28).

Viking offers the industry’s most complete line of storage sprinklers specifically designed to suppress challenging warehouse fires. In addition to five ESFR sprinklers, Viking’s leading line of storage fire protection products also includes dry-type ESFR pendent sprinklers (K14 and K17) as well as CMDA, CMSA, ELO, and EC storage sprinkler options.
