Fire Sprinkler contractors have been installing schedule 40 pipes for many years. As a corrugated stainless-steel specialist, Easyflex has taken a new approach in the sprinkler system. We initially have provided flexible sprinkler connections as a better seismic solution. However, it has more advantages than that. Since sprinklers are normally installed towards the end of the construction, flexible sprinkler connection has solved the unexpected challenges.
*Complying with IBC (Section 1621)/ ASCE 7 (22.214.171.124.2 & 126.96.36.199.2.2), the flexible sprinkler connections are seismically qualified and can be an alternative solution to install without seismic escutcheons.
*Per 2013 NFPA 13 Section 188.8.131.52.3.3, NO hangers are required for flexible drops as long as the length does not exceed 6ft.
