Kindly advice regarding NFPA 14 statement that cancel class II stations and installing 1.5 inch reducer. My question is that what is the function of the reducer mentioned?

RE: FHC class II

Class II hose stations are typically 1-1/2". Replacing Class II with a Class I hose station permits the use of the smaller 1-1/2" thread but requires a reducer from the mandated 2-1/2" thread required of a Class I.

Personally I've never installed a Class II hose station; the AHJ has always requested a Class I.

I believe Stookey has commented on Class II hoses being removed from the code someday as fewer and fewer buildings have trained personnel to handle fire hoses.

RE: FHC class II

For 1 1/2 fire hose connection, that might be used by the fire dept

RE: FHC class II

We require the reducer.

Have to check to see if our guys carry a wye
