Since 1918, Akron Brass has been a global leader in manufacturing firefighting equipment and emergency response solutions. The Akron Brass team prides itself on offering the most durable and practical solutions that maximize job efficiency and safety, from valves and nozzles to monitors and lighting.
High-quality firefighting gate valves are critical for controlling and directing water flow safely and efficiently. With decades of experience in fire service, Akron Brass manufactures brass gate valves to function efficiently and accurately in the harshest operating environments. The 285 gate valve from Akron Brass features a heavy-duty wedge seat design with a 2 ½-inch inlet, a crank handle and a non-rising stem for easy operation at normal operating pressures up to 250 psi.
The valve requires five turns from the fully closed to the fully open position. Special threads are available to fit various nozzles.
