Johnson Controls - the maker of the UL Listed antifreeze for fire sprinkler systems - recently introduced the latest in their line of wet pipe freeze protection solutions.

What?

Tyco LFP® antifreeze - the first UL listed antifreeze solution that works event at cold temperatures as low as -32 degrees Celsius.


Why is it needed?

The pre-mixed solution protects against freeze damage failure and prevents disrupted flow in wet fire sprinkler systems. The Tyco LFP® antifreeze supports market demands and more rigorous temperature requirements.


What are its uses? 

This new solution enables sprinkler systems to work even in harsh climates. Tyco LFP® is compatible with most fire sprinkler systems, and can protect sprinkler systems even at -32 degrees Celsius. This non-toxic product is available for both commercial and residential applications.


Why is it important? 

According to Bob Cordell, global product manager, Johnson Controls, "As part of the UL 2901 Listing process, LFP® Antifreeze+ passed multiple stringent corrosion." He also added that the “UL 2901 is the only industry-accepted standard for corrosion testing of antifreeze. End users can be confident this formula is not only effective, but also safe and compatible with their sprinkler systems.” 

The LFP® Antifreeze+ meets NFPA requirements (13, 13R,13D and 25) and is included in the FBC™ System Compatible Program. This newly listed product offers added assurance for residential and commercial fire sprinkler contractors, fire marshals, and building owners and managers by providing industry-leading wet-pipe protection in extreme cold-weather conditions. LFP® Antifreeze+ is designed to perform in harsh climates to the lowest temperature threshold available on the market today. This includes the coldest North American regions like Canada, where the average winter temperature is minus 15°C (5°F), with much lower regional temperatures possible.


Key Aspects

  • The pre-mixed solution protects against freeze damage failure and prevents disrupted flow in wet fire sprinkler systems.
  • Tyco LFP works even at temperatures as low as -32 degrees celsius.
  • Gives residential and commercial fire sprinkler contractors, fire marshals, and building owners and managers added assurance by providing industry-leading wet-pipe protection in extreme cold-weather conditions.
