Fire Hydrant NFPA Flow Rings From LEM Products, Inc. Yield Critical Fire Fighting Information

Press release from: LEM Products, Inc.

When firefighters arrive at the scene of a fire, they need to quickly determine how to combat the fire and what amount of water is available for their use. The water capacity and the flow rate of fire hydrants are critical pieces of information. When fire department personnel know the water pressure of a hydrant, they can then know what size hose to connect and whether or not additional pumping equipment is required should the hydrant have low pressure.

Color coding of fire hydrants enables firefighters to easily determine this information. The NFPA (National Fire Protection Agency) has created standard ratings for flow capacity. These ratings are Class AA with a rated capacity of 1500 gpm or greater; Class A with a rated capacity of 1000-1499 gpm; Class B with a rated capacity of 500 – 999 gpm; and Class C with a rated capacity of less than 500 gpm.

The NFPA designated a set of colors coded to represent each of the four flow ratings and to be applied to the tops and nozzles. NFPA lists these colors as follows: Class AA – Light Blue; Class A – Green; Class B – Orange; and Class C – Red.

LEM Products, Inc. is now producing outdoor durable hydrant flow rings in the standard NFPA colors. These flow rings are made of 35 mil, UV durable, rigid plastic with solid, through-body color. LEM’s NFPA flow rings are 10.5” , outside diameter and are available in two inside diameters: 4.75” and 5.75” to accommodate varying sizes of fire hydrant nozzles.

NFPA flow rings are easy to install over the hydrant nozzle when the nozzle cap, or steamer cap, is removed, typically in Spring and Fall when flow testing is conducted by fire departments and municipalities. The rigid plastic used to make these flow rings cannot be torn or cut with a knife or scissors making them tamper-proof. The through-body color cannot be scratched or worn away keeping the color coding permanent.

LEM Products, Inc. currently produces a variety of hydrant rings to identify Out of Service hydrants, ownership and usage instructions and warnings for mis-use of water. LEM’s hydrant rings are also available in reflective material for increased nighttime visibility.
