Exposure to Heat
CPVC fire sprinkler piping products are listed for use in wet pipe systems where temperatures are in the range of 35°F to 150°F. GF Harvel CPVC pipe can be installed in an area such as an attic where the temperature will exceed 150°F if ventilation is provided or if insulation is used around the pipe to maintain a cooler environment. The maximum service temperature for CPVC pipe is 200°F.

GF Harvel CPVC fire sprinkler systems must be laid out so that the piping is not closely exposed to heat producing sources such as light fixtures, ballasts, and steam lines. Pipe must not be positioned directly over open ventilation grills.
