“Within the first few months of buying our Shutguns they were used twice in our Texas locations alone. The general managers just love them. Thanks again. You have saved us a ton of money!"

Shutgun, the Fire Sprinkler Deactivation Tool, has been rapidly adopted by Facility Managers world-wide as they know how much money accidental fire sprinkler head activations cost. To them, Shutgun is insurance. Facility Managers understand that minutes can mean the difference between a single room being out of service for a few days to multiple rooms on many floors being unavailable for weeks.

Shutgun has produced real life, proven results that are so amazing that clients are compelled to write in their thanks, like this email from James Underwood, Facility Manager of a major hotel chain. “Within the first few months of buying our Shutguns they were used twice in our Texas locations alone. The general managers just love them. Thanks again. You have saved us a ton of money!"

The amount of water that comes out of a fire sprinkler head is at a very high pressure and can fill a bathtub in 2 minutes. Facility Managers can also attest to the fact that the water that pours out can be filthy from sitting in pipes for many years. That is why the Water Protection Kit, which includes goggles, a plastic rain coat and boots, was developed. The Water Protection Kit was designed to make using the Shutgun an easier and safer process than it already is.

Shutgun, designed by a Toronto District Fire Chief of 35 years, provides fire fighters, emergency response teams and property managers with a one-handed, easy-to-use fire sprinkler shut off tool. With the Shutgun you do not need to shut off the water supply to the sprinkler system until it is time to change the head thus giving you continued fire protection. You even have protection at the site of the activation because Shutgun’s fusible link will melt and the tool will release in the event of a fire. Also, while the system is being drained, water will not be escaping from the activated head. Shutgun works to shut off most types of sprinkler heads including the recessed style now popular in commercial complexes.

If you are attending the International Facility Managers Association (IFMA) Expo in the Sheraton Chicago Hotel & Towers this week, make a point of visiting Greg Patterson, President of Technicraft Product Design Inc., in Booth 218 for a demonstration of the Shutgun.
