When does Galvanized Steel Corrode in Sprinkler Piping?

Although highly effective in preventing oxygen corrosion under certain circumstances, galvanized steel piping will aggressively corrode under persistently moist, oxygenated conditions.

This can be a hard lesson to learn for property owners and fire sprinkler contractors who manage facilities using galvanized steel. But it's not too late to act.

Our white paper, Current Recommendations Regarding the Use of Galvanized Steel Sprinkler Piping within the Fire Protection Industry, sheds light on the problem. Here's what you'll find inside:

  • The scientific facts behind corrosion in galvanized steel piping.
  • Relevant regulation concerning galvanized steel from NFPA 13, FM Global, and other sources.
  • Our recommended solutions for using galvanized steel in new construction and existing systems.
