The Fireloop quake-ready expansion loop is FM approved, UL listed, and meets all NFPA 13 guidelines for seismic expansion joints in fire sprinkler systems.


The Fireloop quake-ready expansion loop is FM Approved and meets all NFPA 13 guidelines for seismic expansion joints in fire sprinkler systems and is UL listed. Courtesy: MetraflexThe Fireloop quake-ready expansion loop from Metraflex is FM Approved and is designed to compensate for pipe movements of ±4 in., ±8-in. and ±24-in. The Fireloop quake-ready expansion joint meets all NFPA 13 guidelines for seismic expansion joints in fire sprinkler systems and it is UL listed. The Fireloop requires only one hanger and two connections for installation. It has low pressure drop and its thin and compact design, allows it to fit snugly into tight pipe runs, minimizing impact on architectural and engineering designs. The Fireloop expansion joint is capable of movement in all directions and can be installed where building or pipe movement is expected.
