Alfaidro NOFIRE represents the innovation for firefighting security, by being the alternative in thermoplastics to metal systems in the active protection area and more specifically in the wet pipe automatic sprinkler systems. It stands out for its easy installation and handling thanks to its reduced weight – up to 80% compared to the metal pipe – the total absence of corrosion both inside and outside, no clogging of sprinklers, no leakage due to the welding technique, time and maintenance cost saving.
The Alfaidro NOFIRE system includes a FASER pipe made of PP-RCT with flame-retardant additive and reinforced by an intermediate layer of special fibers, and PP-RCT fittings; it meets high standards of mechanical and aging resistance and it is classified to fire reaction – in accordance to the UNI EN 13501-1 – as B-s1-d0.
Its use is approved in environments where the fire risk class is:
Low Hazard (LH) or Ordinary Hazard (OH) as defined by UNI EN 12845
Light Hazard (LH) according to NFPA 13, 13R and 13D standards
HC-1 according to the FM 1635 standard.
It can be installed both in new and pre-existing systems and, by using the weld saddles, it is possible to realize end-center and end-side arrays typical of sprinkler systems in a simple and fast way.
The Alfaidro NOFIRE range has passed rigorous fire resistance tests carried out by national and international laboratories and it is classified:
Class B, s1, d0 according to EN 13501-1 (equivalent to a class 1 according to DM 15/03/2005);
Class B1 according to DIN 4102-1
In addition, it is approved for the fire-fighting systems:
Further certifications are in progress.
Alfaidro NOFIRE range is also suitable for the conveyance of hot and cold drinking water in buildings that require fire resistance such as public buildings, hotels, vessels, caravans, shops, hospitals, schools, museums and private buildings.
