Expanded product range and significantly increased pressure rating!
We kindly want to introduce our expanded FM approved product range and new pressure classes for underground fire protection systems! AGRU is the first supplier with an extensive product range of pipes and fittings made from high crack resistant PE 100-RC material! This safes costs during installation, increases the system safety and the service lifetime of the complete piping system.
During the latest product approval, also the pressure rating of our SDR 11 and SDR9 product program has been increased significantly. This brings extensive cost benefitsas smaller wall thicknesses are sufficient in most cases compared to other FM approved systems. This makes AGRU FM approved piping systems the first choice for efficient and reliable, underground installed firefighting systems.

The water supply of а fire protection system is often considered as the most critical component of the system. Moving the water from it's source to the entrance of the building, is the function of underground fire protection piping. This piping system must Ье extremely reliaЫe to withstand internal and external stresses over long periods of time. РЕ 100-RC pipes and fittings can Ье welded together homogeniously Ьу heated tool butt welding or electrosocket welding. The welded joints are as strong as the pipe itself, providing а continuous leak-tight system. On the other hand РЕ 100-RC pipes do not corrode or incrustate. This is а key point as in case of а fire emergency valves will Ье opened immediately and if pipes are corroded or incrustated - particles may Ье flushed and clog the sprinklers inside the building.

There are 2 complete product ranges for firefighting systems availaЫe from Agru: FM approved per approval standard 1613 for 218 psi (15 bar, SDR11 ), and for 250 psi (17,5 bar, SDR9). This pressure designation means maximum operating pressure for firefighting systems, at 23 °C. lt is calculated and tested that all the system components can handle 4 times of the specified pressure in case of а water hammer without any failure.
Maximum operating pressure of approved pipes and fittings for 218 psi.
Maximum operating pressure of approved pipes and fittings for 250 psi.
