Model F-1 Water Shield for Viking XT1 Pendent Fire Sprinklers (1/2″ NPT)

Convert a 1/2″ NPT Viking XT1 pendent fire sprinkler to a rack-storage sprinkler with Viking’s Model F-1 water shield. This water shield has a 3″ diameter to protect the sprinkler’s heat-sensitive parts against water discharge from nearby sprinklers.

Viking’s 10323 fire sprinkler water shield fits pendent XT1 heads with 1/2″ NPT thread connections. The Model F-1 protects against overspray in:

  • In-rack sprinkler systems
  • Sprinklers installed beneath a grating
  • Pilot sprinklers for deluge systems

Is this the right water shield for me?

Don’t use this product with upright XT1 models, which require the Model XWU water shield (sold here). Similarly, don’t install this shield with 3/4″ pendent XT1 models, which use the 3/4″ Model F-1. Viking’s Model F-1 Water Shield is compatible with the following pendent XT1 Sprinklers:

  • VK1021
  • VK3021
  • VK2022
  • VK3521
  • VK2021
  • VK3522

Why use a fire sprinkler water shield?

Fire sprinklers sense heat, and each sprinkler has a specific activation temperature. But in warehouses and other locations where materials are stored on shelves or racks, sprinklers are often placed closely together. Without water shields, the cooling spray of one sprinkler may prevent the timely activation of other sprinklers nearby.

Viking’s Model F-1 water shield sits at the base of an XT1 pendent fire sprinkler. These shields protect against overspray from above while leaving the space below—where the sprinkler discharges—open.
