Viega Forms Strategic Alliance With Reliable Automatic Sprinkler
Viega LLC and Elmsford, N.Y.-based The Reliable Automatic Sprinkler Co. have formed a strategic alliance in order to provide expanded options for residential fire sprinkler applications. The relationship will capitalize on Viega’s UL-listed PureFlow PEX piping system and Reliable’s new line of low-lead sprinklers (patent pending) that meet NSF/ANSI 61 annex G standards of lead content less than 0.25 percent.
This alliance is intended to provide customers with the best compliance options for the 2011 International Residential Code requirements for residential fire sprinkler systems.
Together, Viega and Reliable will promote the benefits of residential fire sprinkler systems and support the industry through comprehensive product training, service and leading-edge products, including Viega’s proprietary PureFlow PEX Press connections and Reliable’s detection device that alarms only on fire sprinkler flow and not domestic water use in multipurpose systems.
In addition, Reliable will add Viega’s UL-listed, NFPA 13D-applicable PEX products to its existing line of system components offered to its customer network. Viega will promote the use of Reliable’s UL- and NSF-listed sprinklers with its PEX piping system.
