Via Globe Fire Sprinkler
Globe Fire Sprinkler is a family run sprinkler manufacturer with 105 years of continuous sprinkler and valve production. The Globe name has retained its enduring identity since the first Globe “A” sprinkler was introduced in 1914. Globe developed the earliest lever pivot dry tube valve, Globe Save All Center Brace Sprinkler, and eventually became the first U.S. company to use 5mm and 3mm glass bulbs in its commercial and residential sprinklers. Globe’s tradition as a leading sprinkler manufacturer is reflected in the introduction of the RCW, UM, UMC valves and other new products that the company develops to meet the demands of the global market.
