What are Fire Department Connections (FDCs)?
Fire Department Connections (FDCs) are the access point for firefighters to supplement a building's fire sprinkler system during a fire. When left unprotected, these openings are prime targets for debris, damage and theft, which eliminates a key tool firefighters need to protect your building.
- Plastic FDC caps may be inexpensive, but they also need to be replaced often.
- Brass caps are vulnerable to theft, and replacements can cost up to $500.
- Unprotected connections may need to be flushed each time a cap is found missing-which can cost up to $1,500.
Knox® Fire Department Connection (FDC) Caps and Plugs are a one-time investment you can't afford to overlook.
