The Metraflex® Fireloop® expansion joint for fire sprinkler systems is an extremely flexible joint accommodating movement in all directions. UL Listed & FM Approved Fireloop® joint is available in movements up to 24-inches and provides excellent protection during building movement events, including earthquakes and building settlement. It meets NPFA 13 guidelines. Revit® and other CAD files are available at metrafire.com. When hangers are too short to allow full-rated movement of the Fireloop, install the Seismic BreakAway Coupling. It separates at a preset load. This allows seismic joints to have complete freedom to achieve their full-rated movement to help protect engineered piping systems and the building from damage during seismic events. After a quake, the BreakAway Coupling can be reset, ready to protect piping during a future event.
