Johnson Controls expands the Tyco DS Dry Sprinkler product line with the DS-8 8.0K (K115) Dry Pendent Sprinkler.


What is it?

The DS-8 Dry Pendent Sprinkler - a new addition to the Tyco DS Sprinkler line.


Why is it needed? 

This new product can be used in commercial freezers, and outdoor spaces like balconies, breezeways, loading docks and parking garages constantly exposed to harsh, cold temperatures.


What are its uses? 

The Tyco DS-8 provides more flexibility for designers and offers the possibility of lower design pressure compared to other dry sprinklers. It also offers ease of installation as it can be seamlessly integrated to the entire Tyco DS product portfolio. 

The product comes with a 3 mm or 5 mm thermosensitive glass bulb that can be used in cold environments, including commercial freezers. When paired with the DSB-2, it reduces air exchange between the inside and outside of the freezer.


Why is it important? 

Bob Cordell, global product manager for Johnson Controls, believes that "With the addition of the DS-8, the Tyco DS portfolio represents the ultimate in dry sprinklers for customers, both in function and finish." He adds, "The complete DS line supports our goal of enhancing building safety and increasing occupant satisfaction through innovative fire protection technology." 

The DS-8 Dry Pendent Sprinkler features a thermosensitive glass bulb that can be used in cold environments, specifically in sprinkler systems that are exposed to freezing temperatures. With a variety of escutcheons (recessed, deep, standard or none), escutcheon finishes (including stainless steel) and custom piping lengths available, the DS-8 provides end users with the increased design flexibility and installation options to meet customers’ unique building project needs.

  • 3 mm or 5 mm thermosensitive glass bulb that can be used in cold environments, specifically in sprinkler systems exposed to harsh temperatures.
