Reliable Chrome Model G Recessed Fire Sprinkler Escutcheon for 1/2 in. NPT Fire Sprinkler Heads
Reliable Model G Recessed Chrome Escutcheon installs with select 1/2 in. NPT pendent sprinklers to provide a pleasant, smooth appearance and a low profile. This escutcheon pairs with Model G recessed sprinklers from Reliable Automatic Sprinkler Company (RASCO) to offer as much as 1/2 in. overall adjustment.
Reliable's Model G escutcheon threads into the cup surrounding a Model G recessed pendent fire sprinkler, forming a listed assembly that can prevent smoke and high temperatures from bypassing the sprinkler head. Unlike other escutcheons, this model does not include a cup that sits on the sprinkler's threads. Instead, the cup that sits inside this escutcheon piece (or skirt) is already attached to 1/2 in. Model G Sprinklers.
This escutcheon should be installed only with the Reliable Model FEA Flush Sprinkler Escutcheon wrench, a tool that protects the escutcheon and reduces smudge marks left on the ceiling during installation.

What is an escutcheon?
A fire sprinkler escutcheon plate is a decorative cover that is ideal for creating a sleek design and ensuring the sprinkler head is in pristine working condition. The escutcheon fits in between the ceiling and the sprinkler head, covering any open gaps that might prevent the sprinkler from activating on time.
The Reliable Model G Recessed Escutcheon is available from QRFS in a chrome finish. Brass, white, and other colors may be available by special order at (888) 361-6662.
