Fire protection

In emergency situations, properly functioning fire protection installations are a must, water when you really need it.

Firemen are completely dependent on gate valves and hydrants that function perfectly, as they are installed in systems designed to protect and save lives and safeguard valuables. Reliability is extremely important when every second counts. System downtime for maintenance and replacement must be kept to a minimum. The wide range of AVK gate valves, hydrants and accessories are all approved according to internationals standards, such as UL, FM and VdS.

Indoor fire protection

All places with valuable assets or flammable material need efficient protection in case of a worst-case scenario: fire. Therefore, department stores, shopping malls, offices, hotels, airport terminals and the like are equipped with indoor fire protection with sprinkler systems which efficiently extinguish a fire efficiently before it gets out of control. 

For indoor fire protection installations it is important that the valves and accessories used are of high quality, so that they will work effectively even after a long period of inactivity. The wide range of indoor fire protection consists of high quality valves and accessories. Our stringent test procedures and internationally recognized approvals ensure rigid and reliable products. So if you need shut-off valves, hydrants, post indicators, check valves, fittings or other products, you can choose an AVK product with confidence. 

Our resilient seated gate valves are designed for use above ground as well as below ground using highly corrosion resistant materials and coating. We offer flanged gate valves in OS&Y design and with pin indicator as well as grooved end gate valves with pin indicator. 

Our centric butterfly valves with fixed liner feature an outstanding seating concept. The rubber is injection moulded directly on the valve body forming a permanent bond, with no risk of deformation or dislocation of the liner.

Outdoor fire protection

Outdoor fire protection systems are indispensable on industrial sites. In many different industrial processes, fire can break out relatively easily, such as in chemical processes or in the processing of flammable materials. The fire protection systems used must therefore meet the highest requirements. 

For the outdoor fire protection the renowned UL/FM approved AVK hydrants enable a fast and effective effort to get the fire under control before it escalates to an un-controllable situation. The hydrants can be operated directly by means of hose attachment, by an attached fire monitor or they can be used as a water access point by the professional fire department. 

The dry barrel hydrants are primarily designed for frozen areas, where the water pipelines are below the ground frost zone. The wet barrel hydrants are primarily designed for frost-free areas. The monitor hydrants are used for installation in chemical and petrochemical industrial plants as well as refineries, tank farms, airports and other plants with large amounts of inflammable liquids posing fire hazards.

AVK naturally also offers UL/FM approved gate valves and post indicators as well as accessories for outdoor fire protection.
