Expanded UL Listing for Attic Sprinklers

Globe Fire Sprinkler has expanded its UL Listing for our Specific Application Attic Protection scheme utilizing RE and DS sprinklers. As part of our continued innovations on a constantly evolving new attic protection concept, new criteria has been added for scenarios where Single Slope roofs exist. This will allow for Single Slope roofs with Slopes of 3:12 to 6:12 and Spans of up to 20 feet with a single line of DS sprinklers or Spans of up to 36 feet with two lines of DS sprinklers. Required system demand flows can be as low as approximately 100 gpm (excluding over discharge) for Wet Systems and 140 gpm (excluding over discharge) for Dry Systems.

In June, Globe introduced a new attic sprinkler protection scheme that offers compliant protection with far less water – which can lower total system demand and cost. Attic system demands can drive the size of system risers, underground and feed mains for an entire project.

Globe's new attic protection scheme strategically locates specifically designed sprinklers to optimize appropriate sprinkler activation, resulting in significantly reduced total system demands.

“By rethinking the placement of sprinklers in the attic space, we’ve developed a way to significantly reduce attic water demand,” commented Globe New Technology VP Kevin Maughan.

In testing, the Globe system has been shown to be effective using as much as 70 percent less water than traditional attic systems. “This means an installed system will require less water, smaller pipe diameters and smaller dry valves,” says Maughan, “all of which can add up to substantial savings.”

We celebrated 100 years of continuous production of Globe Sprinklers and Valves in 2014; the Globe name has persisted in its enduring identity since the introduction of the first Globe Issue "A" Sprinkler in 1914. Globe developed the earliest lever-fulcrum dry pipe valve, Globe Save All center strut sprinklers, and eventually became the first US company to utilize 5mm and 3mm Glass Bulbs in its commercial and residential sprinklers. Its modern era began in 1988 with the guidance and dedication of Golden Sprinkler Award recipient Robert Worthington, P.E. until his passing in 2016. The Worthington family continues to own and operate Globe, under the leadership of Steven Worthington and a team of some of the industry's most seasoned professionals. Globe's heritage as a leading sprinkler manufacturer is reflected in the introductions of the RCW, UM, UMC valves, and other new products the company develops to meet the demands of the world market. The company proudly maintains strong relationships with approval authorities including Underwriters Laboratories Inc, FM Approvals and the Loss Prevention Certification Board (UK). Globe has the LPCB (UK) certification for ISO 9001:2015 series Quality Assurance, therefore exhibiting proof of the quality it continuously builds into each of its 100% factory-tested products.
