Akron Brass offers a wide variety of valves to meet the demands of today’s fire service. Every Akron apparatus valve features the unique Swing-Out design for quick and easy servicing with no need to remove valves from the plumbing. The Swing-Out Valve bodies and adapters are constructed of high quality brass and other corrosion resistant material. Akron Swing-Out Valves feature self-adjusting seats (no o-rings to cut or tear during servicing) creating a quality seal to hold pressure and vacuum in both directions, along with durable handles and handle stops, all built for rugged use. A unique one-piece stop plate allows the handle to be quickly changed to 8 different positions by removing a single bolt. In addition, every valve is factory tested in accordance with current NFPA Standards.

  • National Pipe Straight Hose (NPSH)Is the same as NPT but the thread does not taper. NPSH is a straight thread and has a gasket in the female coupling just like NH/NST.
  • Garden Hose Thread (GHT): This thread seals via washer in the female coupling and is not compatible with the other threads. GHT is for 3/4 inch hose and usually connects to a spigot or tap.
