3 Great Talco Commercial Fire Systems

Talco 13-ULV

If you’re a regular follower of the Steven Brown & Associates blog, you may remember a previous post about our Talco Fire Systems Home Hydrants. We’ve recently seen a lot of interest in Talco’s commercial line of fire systems as well, so today we wanted to take some time to talk about those.

Talco Fire Systems offers three types of commercial systems:

  • 13-ULV Fire Pumps
  • ULR Fire Pumps
  • G-Series Fire Pumps

Here’s an overview of each, to help you find the right one for your intended application.

13-ULV Fire Pumps

As you may be able to guess, these fire pump systems are specifically designed for compliance with NFPA 13R applications. Some examples of such applications would be mixed-use residential and commercial buildings, assisted living centers, and smaller apartment complexes. You can choose from five standard models, all built around a listed vertical inline fire pump with a limited-service controller and optional jockey pump. Flow rates for the 13-ULV fire pumps can range up to 250 GPM.

ULR Fire Pumps

If you’re in need of greater flow rates the Talco ULR model can range from 50 to 1500 GPM and offers pressures up to 160 PSI. Not only do the ULR fire pumps meet NFPA 13R requirements, but they are also NFPA 20 compliant as well. Each URL fire pump comes with a wide range of system options, including:

  • Test headers
  • Jockey pumps
  • Fire pump controllers
  • Flow loops
  • and more…


The G-Series fire pump systems are compact units designed to take up as little floor space as possible, but still offer simple installation and easy access to all necessary equipment. These are NFPA 20 compliant just like the ULR models, and are available in diesel or electric. Each of these systems will be designed specifically for your site plan and design conditions, so you can be sure you’re getting exactly what you need.
