(Image source: Johnson Controls)Johnson Controls has announced that its Tyco® EG-25 Sprinkler Guard is the first FM-approved guard on the market to meet FM Global design guidelines and National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) requirements

The new sprinkler guard is designed for use with TYCO ESFR-25 pendent sprinklers. These sprinklers provide suppression load performance with ceiling-only fire protection for a wide variety of commodities and storage arrangements, enabling building owners to lease to the widest range of occupiers.

When used in in-rack applications, such as the FM Global design guidelines, the ESFR-25 can be combined with the EG-25 guard to help protect the sprinkler from damage that is common to in-rack sprinklers.

The guard’s welded assembly is fabricated from carbon steel, providing protection from mechanical and physical damage including the installation of rack storage sprinklers. The guard does not require any regularly scheduled maintenance; however, proper installation of the EG-25 should be verified during the annual visual inspection of the sprinkler.

Johnson Controls is a global diversified technology and multi-industrial leader serving a wide range of customers in more than 150 countries.
