Flexible Armover Attachments
Sprinkler systems have seen an increase in the use of specifically listed equipment. Flexible arm-overs serve a great purpose in sprinkler system installation but are heavily depended on proper installation per the manufacture listing requirements.
If you look at the first picture above you may say “Well it truly depends!” So lets make a couple of assumptions:
- The system was properly designed to account for the friction loss of the devices
- The flexible armover is listed for use on sprinkler systems
So the question is, does this meet code…. oh and take a look at these pictures below

So Mrs (or Mr.) Inspector, does this meet code? How do you cite this if it is a violation? Does it matter if your referenced version of NFPA 13 does not specifically address flexible arm-overs?
