Web Exclusive-REHAU Residential Fire Protection System
June 3, 2005
REHAU has introduced its new PEX residential fire protection program, which integrates sprinklers with cold water plumbing for one multi-purpose system. This streamlined design reduces installation costs while providing safety and reliability for homeowners. Comprised of RAUPEX® pipe and EVERLOC® fittings, REHAU's system meets the requirements for multipurpose sprinkler systems as defined by the National Fire Protection Association in accordance with NFPA 13D for one- and two-family dwellings and manufactured housing. Routinely, the system will supply the home's domestic cold water plumbing needs, providing added assurance that the fire protection system is in working order. In the event of a fire, the system is expected to significantly control the fire in the room of origin, improving the chance for occupants to escape or be evacuated. REHAU.
