FM 1613 approved piping systems
Expanded product range and significantly increased pressure rating!
We kindly want to introduce our expanded FM approved product range and new pressure classes for underground fire protection systems! AGRU is the first supplier with an extensive product range of pipes and fittings made from high crack resistant PE 100-RC material! This safes costs during installation, increases the system safety and the service lifetime of the complete piping system.
Furthermore, AGRU PE 100-RC FM approved components achieve the highest pressure ratings of 218 psi / 15 bar (SDR 11) and 250 psi / 17.5 bar (SDR 9). With the AGRU FM approved catalog and comprehensive technical support, AGRU offers a complete program and is your partner from planning to completion of any project where FM approved piping is required for underground fire suppression systems.
AGRU the full-range supplier also in the FM sector
AGRU manufactures pipes and fittings in the dimensions OD 63 mm to OD 630 mm in the pressure stages 218 psi/15 bar (SDR 11) as well as 250 psi/17.5 bar (SDR 9). The approval test carried out as part of the product expansion also made it possible to significantly increase the pressure ratings for our pipe systems in SDR 11 and SDR 9! This means considerable cost advantages for installation compared to many other manufacturers with FM approval. FM-certified pipe systems from AGRU are thus the first choice for reliable, buried fire extinguishing systems.
AGRU America receives FM approval for IPS fittings
With our comprehensive range, we are able to fully meet the high demands and requirements for buried fire extinguishing pipes in a wide variety of applications. Our subsidiary company AGRU America completes our delivery programme of FM-certified pipe systems in the IPS dimension (Iron Pipe Size) commonly used in the USA. AGRU can therefore supply the full range in both metric and IPS dimensions.

The water supply of а fire protection system is often considered as the most critical component of the system. Moving the water from it's source to the entrance of the building, is the function of underground fire protection piping. This piping system must Ье extremely reliaЫe to withstand internal and external stresses over long periods of time. РЕ 100-RC pipes and fittings can Ье welded together homogeniously Ьу heated tool butt welding or electrosocket welding. The welded joints are as strong as the pipe itself, providing а continuous leak-tight system. On the other hand РЕ 100-RC pipes do not corrode or incrustate. This is а key point as in case of а fire emergency valves will Ье opened immediately and if pipes are corroded or incrustated - particles may Ье flushed and clog the sprinklers inside the building.

System pressure rating
There are 2 complete product ranges for firefighting systems availaЫe from Agru: FM approved per approval standard 1613 for 218 psi (15 bar, SDR 11 ), and for 250 psi (17,5 bar, SDR 9). This pressure designation means maximum operating pressure for firefighting systems, at 23 °C. lt is calculated and tested that all the system components can handle 3.2 times of the specified pressure in case of а water hammer without any failure.
