FlexHead® Flexible Sprinkler Connections consist of fully welded, stainless steel hose assemblies and anchoring system that connect sprinkler heads to the branch lines. These systems install in a quarter of the time of hard pipe armovers, allowing for rapid installation or relocation of sprinkler heads in suspended ceilings. The flexible hose connection assures perfect aesthetics for sprinkler head placement. Each FlexHead® unit comes with a mounting bracket and a one-piece leak tested sprinkler drop. The sprinkler drop is specifically designed to be compatible with Armstrong® MetalWorks Wings Accent and Acoustical Clouds.
FlexHead® Flexible Sprinkler Connections are compatible with any contractor installed sprinkler head of choice and are available in both 1/2″ & 3/4″ outlet sizes. This pressure/leak tested system is available in 3 and 6 foot hose lengths, making it ideal for MetalWorks Wings.
The FlexHead® commercial sprinkler connections designed for MetalWorks Wings are Factory Mutual (FM) approved and are manufactured in an FM audited facility. The standard unit is rated at 175PSI with a 300PSI unit available for high pressure applications
FlexHead® flexible sprinkler connections allow for independent movement between sub-mains and ceilings. Armstrong® and FlexHead® have tested this system at the State University of New York at Buffalo (SUNY). They’re qualified for use in Seismic Design Categories C, D, E and F. They meet all International Building Code requirements without needing an unsightly oversized ring, sleeve or adaptor where the ceiling meets the sprinkler head. FlexHead® connections are FM-approved and UL-listed, having passed rigorous tests for hydrostatic pressure, vibration, friction loss, fatigue, head deployment, corrosion and water hammer. Every hose is leak-checked at the factory. Their burst pressure exceeds 3,000 pounds. And they’re compatible with every sprinkler head on the market.
