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.
