Ames Co. has introduced its In-Building Riser made of series 300 stainless steel. The In-Building Riser is an easy to install underground fireline transition fitting to bring water supply into a building. It is suited for fire protection systems and is UL/FM approved and designed to meet NFPA 24 section 8-3.2 standards. The In-Building Riser connects the primary water supply to the building's overhead fire system. The fitting passes under the foundation without joints and extends up through the floor. The unit has a cast iron pipe size coupler for easy connection to the underground supply and an industry standard grooved-end connection on the building side for easy connection to the overhead fire sprinkler system. www.wattsind.com Watts Industries.
