Oval Brand Regulatory Compliant Standpipe Hose Valve and Connection
Oval Brand Regulatory Compliant Standpipe Hose Valve and Connection. U.S. Patent No. 9,555,272

Introducing the Oval Brand standpipe hose connection, which protrudes less than 4 inches when surface mounted.

Nearly all existing standpipe outlet valves protrude greater than 4” as installed, and they often violate the ADA and local building codes.

  • The protruding object limit is part of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), ANSI/ICC A117.1, the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), ISO 21542, and the International Fire Code (IFC).
  • CMS and the NFPA-101 Life Safety Code (LSC) limit the projection to 4” in corridors for hospitals, healthcare, senior-living, and long-term care facilities.
  • Per NFPA-14 guidelines the valve handle and snoot must be located between 36” and 60” above the floor.

The Oval Brand valve meets National Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) published design requirements (not yet NRTL listed).
