New firefighter tool prevents water damage in buildings
Hamilton, Ont.-based Quickstop Fire Sprinkler Tools has designed a new product that is an all-in-one tool for firefighters to stop the flow of water from activated or damaged fire-sprinkler heads. The multi-purpose tool, designed by San Diego firefighter Matt Scarpuzzi, is tested to hold 100 per cent water tight up to 2,400 KPA. The tool is designed to released when heated and to function as a temporary sprinkler head in the event of a second fire.
The tool is also able to remove FDC caps, make standpipe connections, shut off residential utilities, adjust system pressures (PRV), open oxygen cylinders, block doors open and stop a variety of fire sprinklers.
