Spokane Valley Fire Department sees thefts of brass caps from fire safety connection systems at area businesses

The Spokane Valley Fire Department has noticed a rash of thefts of brass fire caps from Fire Department Connection systems at businesses in Liberty Lake. People may be stealing them to sell to recycling companies, said Fire Marshal Greg Rogers. The fire department uses the FDC systems, with connection points either set into the business wall or on a vertical pipe next to the building, to hook into the building’s sprinkler systems in case of a fire.

New Lever Latch from Southco Features Visual Access Indicator

CONCORDVILLE, PA—Southco, Inc., a provider of engineered access solutions ,has added a new version to its successful C2 Lever Latch product line that provides the same consistent compression and vibration resistance as the standard C2 series, but features a color-coded access indicator that allows the user to see if the latch has been opened.

The C2 Lever Latch with Visual Access Indicator features a small, color coded window that can be viewed to monitor latch status. When the window shows green, the latch has not been opened since it was last reset. If the latch is opened, the window will turn from green to red, signaling that the latch has been actuated. The indicator remains red in subsequent opening or actuation. The red indicator can be reset back to green with a simple 90 degree turn of the tool recess security key.

Designed for simple, one handed operation, the C2 series features a flush-mounted design and a built-in handle. The C2 series delivers high mechanical performance and compensates for misalignment, delivering a robust cycle life. Additionally, the C2 with Visual Access Indicator can be installed in the same panel prep as the current C2 series, simplifying application upgrades, and is available with key or tool locking options for increased security. Further, the new C2 comes with an integrated bumper to provide scratch-free engagement with frame to protect its decorated or coated finish

Global Product Manager Loc Tieu adds, “The C2 Lever Latch with Visual Access Indicator offers the same consistent operation as our standard C2 series, but provides the added benefit of visually monitoring latch status. By allowing the end user to see if the latch has been actuated, the C2 Lever Latch with Visual Access Indicator saves the end user unnecessary time spent opening the enclosure to verify the enclosure contents.”
