Where is a 2-1/2 in. Fire Hose Valve commonly found?
2-1/2 in. fire hose valves are used as a fire department outlet connection commonly found in stairwell landings of multi-story buildings or as part of a test header assembly on the outside of your building. Additionally, fire hose valves are used with pin rack units inside of a cabinet, which is why fire hose valves are often called a fire hose cabinet valve. Most internal fire-fighting hose applications - whether from fire fighters bringing hose or stationary pin rack units - use 1.5 in. fire hose and, as such, this valve will commonly pair with a 2-1/2 in. to 1.5 in. hose valve reducer.
Fire hose valves are part of the standpipe system. When a fire department connects to a fire department connection (FDC) to charge an automatic sprinkler system or a standpipe system, the fire hose valve is the outlet where firefighters can connect their hose on specific floors. If the fire hose valve is part of a pin rack unit, the concept remains the same - an access point for water to fight the fire - but the pin rack unit provides the hose.
