Our Standard

“What is adequacy? Adequacy is no standard at all,” Winston Churchill.

Mere adequacy falls short when it comes to Emergency Response Connections. Specifying “Storz on new hydrants”, and “Storz on FDC connections”, is not specific, and the stakes are too high to risk failure of your community’s Emergency Response Connections!

“Harrington Hydrant Storz” maintains “the 1975 permanent hydrant adapter standard”. Our “Harrington Integral Hydrant Storz” (HIHS) was created with the original 1975 specification as the template for the design. Permanent outdoor installations, of Storz Fire Department hook-ups, must be specially designed for the job:

Metal Face vs. Gasket (replacement part)
No Storz-Lok vs. with lock (moving part)
High-torque cap removal (tamper resistant)

Adhere to the Harrington Hydrant Storz specification for your FDC connections.
Keep your Emergency Response Connections ready for the future. Specify Harrington Metal Face Storz Connections!
