Tyco Fire Protection Products, a division of Tyco, introduced the Model RM-1 Riser Manifold. The RM-1, available for commercial and residential uses, features a proprietary connection between the manifold and the Potter alarm switch. The connection has a watertight, flat surface design which helps prevent leaks.

Other features of the RM-1 Riser Manifold include a pressure gauge, alarm test orifice, drain, and sight glass housed in a single assembly for use in NFPA 13 commercial sprinkler systems. The variety of sizes and grooved end connections allow cost effective and easy transition to check valves, control valves, and system piping, said company officials.

With a maximum working pressure of 300 psi, the Model RM-1 Riser Manifold may be installed either in a horizontal (flow switch on top) or vertical (flow going up) orientation, for both single sprinkler rises and floor control in high-rises. It is UL, ULC Listed, and FM approved.
