Fire Protection and FM Pipe

Fire Protection Piping Systems and FM pipe

Fire protection systems for industrial plants usually require that all components have Factory Mutual Research Corporation (FM) approval. Large insurance companies specializing in insuring large manufacturing plants formed Factory Mutual Research Corporation (FMRC). They found that insurance risk was reduced when the fire protection system and its components met standards set by FMRC.

Factory Mutual Research Corporation is a testing laboratory that is recognized in the USA and internationally for its work testing components for fire protection systems. Components for fire protection systems are tested to make sure that the products meet performance, safety, and quality standards. Factory Mutual approval provides proof that components meet the requirements of a fire protection system now and will continue to meet these requirements in the event of a fire.

ISCO Industries, Inc has been inspected and approved by Factory Mutual Research Corporation. Our facilities are inspected on an on-going basis and our facilities pass scheduled and unscheduled inspections.  ISCO Industries manufactures high-density polyethylene (HDPE) fittings and distributes HDPE pipe manufactured to FM standards. Both FM fittings and FM pipe are marked with the Factory Mutual diamond indicating approval.
