Fire Sprinkler Shut Off Tool

Quickstop fire sprinkler shut off tool

The Quickstop Fire Sprinkler Shut Off Tool is designed to temporarily stop the flow of water from a fire sprinkler. We highly recommend having this tool on hand in facilities with emergency fire sprinklers. The Talon Fire Sprinkler Tool is a must-have for hotels, classrooms, and commercial buildings.

It can take a long time to shut off the water, especially in larger facilities. Having this tool on hand can save a building from costly water damage. If you want your facility to have the tool it needs to shut off an emergency fire sprinkler, this is the tool you need. It’s reusable, adjustable, and easy to use.

How does the Quickstop Talon Fire Sprinkler Shut Off Tool work?

Quickstop Fire Sprinkler Shut Off ToolThe upper arm slides around the threaded area of the fire sprinkler. The lower arm has a round rubber gasket that seals the opening of the sprinkler head. The gasket fits over the entire opening of the sprinkler which stops the flow of water. The Quickstop Talon is designed to stay out of the direct flow of water so it should be easy to attach to the sprinkler. Then you simply squeeze the clamp to put the tool in place.

On the back of the tool, there is an adjustable screw and nut that can be raised or lowered, enabling the Fire Sprinkler Shut-Off tool to fit various fire sprinkler sizes. Every unit comes preset with the correct settings for the standard fire sprinkler size. There is also a red ‘quick release’ arm that enables the user to release the tool from a sprinkler system with one hand.

It is made of zinc and chrome plated steel, which protects the tool against rust. The Quickstop Talon has been tested to be 100% water tight up to 350 pounds per square inch (PSI).

Plumbing Fact: According to the International Plumbing Code, a building with water pressure that exceeds 80 PSI requires a pressure reducing valve. This means that this fire sprinkler tool is functional well over the maximum water flow rate. 

What Types of Fire Sprinklers does it work on?

  • • Conventional Fire Sprinklers
  • • Upright Fire Sprinklers
  • • Pendant Fire Sprinklers
  • • Horizontal Sidewall Fire Sprinklers
  • • Vertical Sidewall Fire Sprinklers
  • • Recessed Pendent Fire Sprinklers

This tool works on 1/2 inch and 3/4 inch fire sprinkler heads. Not only does this tool work for various sprinkler head sizes, but it also works on damaged and sheared units as well. The dimensions of the tool are 8 in × 3 in × 2 in.

Order this emergency fire sprinkler shut-off tool by requesting a quote on our website, or by calling us toll-free at 800-442-6622 Monday-Friday, 7:30AM-5:00PM EST.

Share the Quickstop Fire Sprinkler Shut Off Tool PDF with your facility director, maintenance team, or purchasing department to keep your facility prepared in case an activated fire sprinkler needs to be turned off.

The Benefits of Oxygenated Shower Heads

The Benefits of Oxygenics Shower Heads make them a no-brainer for all situations, in both residential and commercial applications. These high-performance showerheads are water efficient and also improve user shower experience.

OxygenicsShowerHeadGraphic• Supercharging Water with oxygen gets the absolute most out of each drop, making the most efficient use of available resources.

• Adding Oxygen to water is like filling up a balloon with air. It makes the water droplets expand so they come out of the shower heads larger and wider, covering more of you when you shower.

• The Mixture of oxygen and water that occurs in an Oxygenics shower head creates an effect like a jet engine, blasting away dirt and odor with incredible strength.

Anti-Clog properties like Delrin nonstick internal components and the single flow design helps stop clogs like calcium build up from occurring, a common problem in areas with hard, mineral-rich water.

New Showerhead Technology Delivers Power AND Efficiency

Oxygenics showerheads bring you great water pressure while saving water at the same time. They use only 1.5 gallons of water per minute, a whopping 1 GPM less than the maximum the US government mandates (2.5 GPM). Oxygenics showerheads do this without sacrificing pressure. Here’s how:

The Oxygenics Engine: It’s what drives these shower heads. Originally developed in 1981, it has been perfected over three decades to make the most of the available water resources and give you a powerful, water saving shower experience at any pressure.

1. Pressure Chamber: Water is introduced into a pressure chamber that works like a mini-turbine jet, increasing water velocity.

2. Air Vacuum: Water passes through an air vacuum at high speed, infusing oxygen into each drop.

3. Spray Head: The pressurized combination of water and oxygen is released through an expanding nozzle, widening coverage and greatly increasing water power.

Choose the Oxygenics showerhead model below that is most fitting for your application. These models work well in a variety of settings including: hospitals, schools, multi-family housing, locker rooms, nursing homes, hotels, clubs, and upscale facilities.
