Sleek and streamlined pillar fire hydrants
Available in two versions and with DN 80, 100 and 150, the ATLAS PLUS pillar fire hydrant is characterised by maneuverability, mechanical resistance and hydraulic performance. Its sleek lines and new streamlined body design make this fire hydrant blend into the urban scenery. It has been designed for ease of maintenance, resistance to climatic conditions, and the prevention of water retention in its aboveground parts.
Functionality indicator: in the collapsible version of the pillar hydrant, a device has been added to prevent it from being put back into use when it is still not completely functional, such as after an impact and breakage of the collapsible system’s wedges by an unauthorised person. A standing hydrant means that it is available, but one lying on the ground is in need of repair.
Protection: in the non-collapsible version, the connection of the intake body to the fire hydrant’s tube is made well above ground level. The absence of a connection at ground level protects the nuts and bolts from run-off water and slag.
Security: for both versions, the streamlined body conceals the screwed connection and reduces the risk of vandalism.
Pillar fire hydrants for a safer environment
All PAM cast iron fire hydrants are in strict compliance with standards NF EN 14384, NF S 61213/CN and the CE mark. A casing made entirely of ductile iron protects them from impact, whether accidental or otherwise, and operational hazards such as water hammers. Their internal and external coatings are a 250-micron thick layer of epoxy powder, while the resistance of the final coat to ultra-violet light protects the pillars against external pressures.
We equip all of our pillar fire hydrants with a sealing check valve, which is fully encapsulated in elastomer to protect it from corrosion and abrasion. Its shape prevents the retention of sand or gravel, thus avoiding damage, and ensures that the flow rate at opening and closing is progressive so that water hammer is avoided.
The complete range of PAM pillar fire hydrants comes in two versions – collapsible and non-collapsible. Impacts that knock the pillar hydrant over are not detrimental to it, as it is equipped to remain watertight. Only the assembly wedges are damaged in this instance and the hydrant can be put back into service quickly, easily and economically. The fire hydrants are built to prevent any leakage, which could lead to erosion or black ice.
