Overview

The Importance of Having a Shutgun

Sometimes, our fire sprinklers activate in non-fire scenarios, and this can be a big problem – especially regarding potential water damage. That’s what the Shutgun is for – a quick and easy fire sprinkler shut off tool. Without a fire sprinkler shut off tool, sprinkler discharge can only be stopped at the main valve or a local shutoff valve. Fire code may require personnel to patrol the building or even evacuate until the broken head is replaced.

Shutgun stops water damage caused by accidental fire sprinkler discharge: vandalism, human error, and industrial accidents can lead to non-fire activation, which can lead to mold, mildew, damaged carpets, and a host of other expensive issues. A Shutgun fire sprinkler shutoff device is essential for contractors, movers, painters, cleaners, or anybody else who works in close proximity to fire sprinklers.

Institutional Shutgun Fire Sprinkler Shut off Tool

This Original Shutgun is used specifically for Institutional fire sprinkler heads.  This tool features a Temporary Fusible Link heat element, which activates at 164F (73C), to keep fire sprinklers operational until a replacement is installed. This Shutgun features a Steel Handle and Aluminum Frame, making it sturdy enough to stop the force of an activated fire sprinkler.

How to use the Institutional Shutgun:

Step 1. Place the probe of the Shutgun in the opening of the institutional sprinkler head.

Step 2. Squeeze the Shutgun handles to spread jaws apart. Once the Shutgun jaws are opened fully, they should fit tightly between the deflector and the water source. This may require the handles of the Shutgun to be squeezed multiple times.

Step 3. When it's time to replace the broken sprinkler, shut off the supply of water.

Step 4. Release the Shutgun by holding the handles and pressing the black release lever.

Step 5. Replace the damaged fire sprinkler and turn the water on for the sprinkler system.
