FireLock™ Installation-Ready™ Fittings: A Closer Look Behind the Innovation

Posted on February 15, 2016

The most innovative change to fire protection fittings since Victaulic originated the grooved concept is here! Introducing the new FireLock™ Installation-Ready™ Fittings. Designed for fire protection systems, this new technology requires less fasteners, resulting in faster, simpler installation and maintenance while keeping the jobsite safer and more efficient. Check out part one of our Q&A with director of couplings and fire suppression systems, Susan Schierwagen, about this technology that is set to revolutionize the fire protection industry.

为什么 Victaulic(唯特利)决定投入时间和资源来开发新的 FireLock 免拆快装式管件?

过去 10 年来,我们不断通过独有的免拆快装式技术在接头领域进行创新,使客户无需拆卸产品即可进行安装。我们想要探索如何可以将这些创新应用到管件中,为承包商节省更多的时间和人力成本,并使他们能够更轻松地在工地现场管理库存,并且轻松享受免拆快装式技术带来的所有其他好处。这对于小尺寸管件尤其重要,因为相比操作三个或四个部件,只操作一个管件将非常易于控制。简而言之,我们希望将免拆快装式技术提升到一个新的水平,并为此投入适当的资源。

 

FireLock 免拆快装式管件与螺纹连接和传统沟槽等竞争产品相比有哪些优势?

主要优势是我们的产品可为承包商节省更多时间。此外也可确保工地现场无杂乱,并使承包商无需为拧紧螺纹管件而使用双头扳手作业。这种免拆快装式技术还可避免使用传统接头和管件常用的零散部件,也无需润滑密封垫圈,并且使承包商不必在一次安装期间多次上下梯子。我们对不同产品进行了比较研究,您在此处可以看到。

 

How does this affect maintenance?

从维护角度来看,该产品易于拆卸。取下管件外壳后,可以发现密封垫圈非常类似于挠性管件 - 它可以很容易从系统中取出来,并可以同样的方式轻松装回到系统。只需放入一个新密封垫圈,将其安装在 2 段或 3 段管道上,将壳体装回顶部并拧紧即可。

 

有较小伸出尺寸的优点是什么?

Today the ceiling spaces in construction jobsites are more and more crowded so smaller take-out dimensions will take up less space and allow the contractor to do tighter turns which is important as fire protection contractors are typically not the first on the jobsite and often have to work around other trades’ work.

 

你们是否一直在现场试用新的 FireLock 免拆快装式管件?如果是,在工地现场最初获得的反响是什么?

这项技术在过去 8 - 10 个月中一直在进行现场试用,获得的反响一直都是非常积极的。我们最常收到的问题是“我最快多久能买到这款产品?”以及“没有什么比安装这个更容易了。”这些来自客户的良好体验和积极反响,让我们有信心为市场提供创新的新产品,使他们的工作更加轻松。
