Copper water tube and fittings in engineered soldered fire sprinkler systems are relatively new and rapidly expanding markets.

Copper provides multiple advantages over traditional systems.:

  • Dominating these advantages is copper’s use of installation and smaller size for the same performance.
  • The increasing internal surface roughness common to traditional systems is not found in copper
  • The narrowing of the inside diameter caused by corrosion build-up is also negligible.
  • Copper tube is also resistant to galvanic corrosion when joined to steel portions of steel piping systems
  • Low maintenance requirements and ductility,
  • Copper installations provide considerable space savings particularly where concealment is desired.
