When should the Viking VK480 be used?

When temperatures near the ceiling reach 135F (57C), the soldered cover plate detaches, exposing the head of the Viking VK480 concealed horizontal sidewall fire sprinkler, which activates when temperatures reach 165F (68C). The Viking Model VK480 has a 4.0 K-Factor and installs with 1/2 in. (12.7 mm) National Pipe Thread (NPT), used in fire sprinkler systems throughout the United States.

With a maximum working pressure of 175 PSI (12.1 BAR), this horizontal sidewall sprinkler installs on a wall or the side of a beam where ceiling piping is not desirable and may be installed and used in accordance with NFPA 13, NFPA 13R, NFPA 13D and local fire code.

Each Model VK480 sprinkler is made by Viking, a global leader in fire protection manufacturing for nearly 100 years. This product is UL-listed, and appropriate for use in fire protection systems when accepted by the authority having jurisdiction.

How to use the included installation hardware?

Viking provides a 3/4 in. pipe guide with each VK480 concealed pendent fire sprinkler. This guide helps installer keep the correct distance between the sprinkler and the face of a finished wall.

Then, use the included screws toattach the guide to a stud (2-by-4), ensuring that the center of the fitting and the centerline of the sprinkler are no further than 6 in. apart.Then, finish the installation in accordance Viking's instructions, attaching the sprinkler and cover plate to the pipe with a threaded CPVC elbow.
