Fire system accessories icon Accessories & Equipment

Our FPPI brand product line is a complete range of specialized product solutions and accessories for fire protection systems, from standpipes to signage.

Our main goal is 100% customer satisfaction, and you can witness this in every step of the process, from our product sourcing to delivery to after-sales-support for distributors and contractors.

You may not think brand matters when choosing fire sprinkler accessories, but consider this: In a category thought to be generic, FPPI strives to leave a mark. Sourced from carefully selected vendors and manufactured from high quality materials and finishes to meet and exceed industry standards, our line of accessories is known to perform on the job. We work hard to give what many contractors think of as "commodity" system parts the competitive edge.

Fabrication equipment icon Fabrication Equipment

Pre-fabbing as much pipe as possible is efficient, accurate and economical, which is why busy mechanical contractors integrate this work into their own shops. One operator can easily and safely square cut, bevel cut and groove accurately and safely with our complete pipe fabrication solutions and equipment.

Our NAP brand automated, technologically advanced fabrication machines are customizable machine stations that enable your shop to fabricate pipe faster and cleaner, with less errors and waste, and with maximum safety in mind

Our latest addition, the NAP Shop-Gruv Automated Roll Groover, eliminates 95% of roll-set changes, allowing greater output than ever before.

New Flex Head icon Flexible Sprinkler Hoses & Brackets

ASC's FlexHead is the original flexible sprinkler hose, dramatically simplifying sub-main connections to save time and labor costs with no impact on system effectiveness.

FlexHead systems connect sprinkler heads to sprinkler sub-mains in about a quarter of the time it takes to install hard pipe. Expect even greater savings in retrofits, where FlexHead installs six to seven times faster than hard pipe. Increase productivity with the ease of installation, no need to install hangers and there is no on-site assembly required. Every sprinkler connection is a finished, pre-constructed assembly, from the 1" pipe connector to the sprinkler head outlet.

In addition, FlexHead provides seismic protection to sprinkler heads allowing for deflection during a seismic event.
