The TYCO® DV-5A RED-E Cabinet by Johnson Controls is a pre-assembled, pre-wired and pre-tested fire protection package enclosed within a freestanding, 14-guage steel cabinet designed to occupy minimal floor space and provide an aesthetically pleasing enclosure for the fire protection valve riser.
The new cabinet includes the TYCO DV-5A valve and is available in both deluge and pre-action package options. The valve package includes the manual system shut-off control valve, automatic water control valve, and water-flow/supervisory switches. The system is also available with an optional built-in air compressor, optional control panel, and back-up batteries for providing electrical alarm, supervisory and trouble functions.
“The new DV-5A RED-E Cabinet is prewired and preassembled to minimize installation time and labor,” said Joe Tieman, director of sales, Sprinkler Systems, USA, Johnson Controls. “The fully hinged, removable double-doors provide convenient access to internal parts for easy maintenance. The cabinet is also forklift compatible, features industrial-grade rollers for mobility, and is equipped with magnetic light strips for clear interior visibility and monitoring.”
Both the deluge and pre-action packages are designed to readily incorporate 1-1/2-inch through 8-inch valve risers. The cabinet package is UL, C-UL Listed, FM and OSHPD approved for both the deluge and preaction actuations (wet pilot, dry pilot, electric actuation deluge systems, single interlock wet pilot, dry pilot, electric actuation, double interlock electric/pneumatic and electric/electric).
Other key features include:
- An optional seismic kit.
- Externally visible gauges and panel displays.
