New Mirage® ELO Concealed Sprinkler Listed to Cover 20 x 20 ft. Area as Quick Response

Wednesday, May 5, 2010

Hastings, MI, USA – Viking Corporation, a global leader in fire protection and life safety systems, has added a new 11.2 (161) K-factor, extended coverage, pendent to its Mirage® line of commercial concealed sprinklers. The new model VK636 is the only 11.2 K-factor commercial concealed sprinkler with a quick response cULus listing for up to 20 x 20 ft. (6.1 x 6.1 m) coverage areas.

This new flat plate concealed sprinkler, which is approved for light hazard occupancies, is available in 165°F (74°C) and 205°F (96°C) temperature ratings. The sprinkler’s cover plate assembly, which offers ½ inch (13 mm) of vertical adjustment, is offered in 135°F (57°C) and 165°F (74°C) temperature ratings. The cover plate is available in several standard finishes, including chrome, white, ivory, and black as well as a nearly unlimited number of custom colors using virtually any manufacturer and type of paint.

Like all Mirage® concealed sprinklers, the VK636 includes an easy “push on, thread off” cover plate. Viking also offers special tools for its Mirage® line allowing the installer to remove a sprinkler’s protective cap and install its cover plate without using a ladder. The cap removal tool, which doubles as a “leave behind” wrench for the sprinkler cabinet, attaches to a length of one-inch (DN25) CPVC, making it possible to remove the protective cap from the floor. Once the cap is removed, the installer can then use Viking’s innovative cover plate installation tool. This tool, which attaches to the other end of the CPVC pipe length, enables the installation of the cover plate without using a ladder.
