Introducing NEW Plastic Universal Hose Valve Caps from FPPI

Carlsbad, CA – FPPI pleased to announce the launch of its Universal Hose Valve Cap, the newest addition to its line of plastic hose valve caps.  The new valve cap helps contractors save time as it is designed to fit most regional threads and can be installed on most 2½” sized hose valves by simply pushing it onto the outlet.  No tools are required, and the cap can be removed and put back in place several times without compromising the protection it provides the threads.


The plastic caps have been introduced to meet the increasing demand for an alternative to brass and aluminum caps for hose valves with regional threads.   This is particularly important in areas where metal parts are subject to theft. In these situations, contractors need a solution that is immediately identified as “low to no value”, to deter theft and vandalism.   The new hose valve caps are made from red plastic, and are unlikely to be stolen.


FPPI’s Universal Hose Valve Caps are equipped with a chain, and will fit most 2½” sized hose valves with the exception of the Richmond regional thread hose valve (RCH).  They are not suitable for pressure testing.

New from FPPI: OS&Y Valves

Carlsbad, CA -- With the introduction of OS&Y Fire Main Gate Valves, Fire Protection Products, Inc. (FPPI) continues to extend its offering of brass trim products. The new valves are UL listed, FM approved and available in 1”, 1¼”, 1½” and 2” sizes exclusively from local FPPI distributors. Manufactured to meet the highest quality standards in material and performance, they seamlessly fit into the existing portfolio and meet the demand for long lasting, reliable fire system valves.


The outside stem construction of OS&Y valves allows fire sprinkler system professionals to immediately see whether a system is active or shut off: When the valve is opened, the stem rises above the hand wheel. In the closed position, the stem is concealed inside of the valves. External tamper switches can be added for central station or panel monitoring.
