By Dan Kelley on 21/01/2020 2:30:37 PM

Firequip is pleased to announce that we now have stock of VSH Shurjoint Roll Groove Fittings, Couplings and Valves. Our range includes couplings, elbows, tees, reducing tees, flange to roll grove adaptors, concentric reducers, check valves and butterfly valves.

Producing its first grooved couplings in 1974, Shurjoint has over four decades of experience and recognised as a world leader in the design and manufacture of mechanical piping components. Their range of products have been developed to be used with a variety of piping materials including carbon steel, stainless steel, ductile iron, PVC, HDPE, CPVC and copper tubing.

Shurjoint manufactures their couplings and fittings with ductile iron housings and EPDM gaskets to provide superior strength and performance and are designed to conform to and meet or exceed all domestic and international standards and are both FM approved and UL listed. The reliability of Shurjoint couplings and fittings is further backed by an industry leading 10 Year Warranty renforcing the high quality and ongoing reliability of these products.

In addition to superior performance, most Shurjoint couplings and fittings do not require the use of a torque wrench and only require metal-to-metal contact for proper assembly with the Z05 rigid angle pad coupling also providing a fast and easy ‘swing-over’ installation with removal of a single bolt.

Firequip also carries a range of flexible Shurjoint couplings which are typically used to accommodate misalignment, distortion, thermal stress, vibration, noise and seismic tremors and can even be used on arced or curved piping layouts.

Our range of Shurjoint Valves includes Check Valves and Butterfly Valves with our Riser Check Valve being a single clapper design with dual springs for non-slamming operation and a streamlined body that provides low friction loss and can be installed in vertical or horizontal positions. The SJ-300F  Butterfly Valve is UL Listed and FM approved for 300 psi WWP (water working pressure) service for indoor and outdoor use. The valve consists of an epoxy powder coated ductile iron body and EPDM rubber encapsulated dual-seal disc and is equipped with a weatherproof worm gear operator and supervisory switch and wiring.

Short Adjustable Brackets have arrived.

By Firequip Author on 17/10/2018 5:20:20 PM


Early in the year we introduced a new product The Adjustable Bracket, this was meant to compliment our Flexible Sprinkler Hose and Accessories range. But.... we found out that the bracket was too long for some of the applications it was intended.

To overcome this problem we have worked closely with our customers and our supplier Fesco© to design a new bracket that is more suitable for confined ceiling spaces. So Firequip now offers the adjustable bracket in 2 lengths (60mm and 140mm) to better suit your confined ceiling space.
