- Booster heads are connection devices that enable fire brigades to pressurise fire mains by pumping water into the fire service. This helps maintain effective water pressure in the face of multiple hydrant usage. They are generally installed as part of a booster and hydrant assembly, although they may be installed as a stand-alone connection.
- Booster heads are constructed from either gunmetal or cast iron, with cast iron heads being epoxy lined. They are manufactured with internal spring check valves. Specific fire brigade connections are available to suit the relevant regulatory authorities.
- The BSS653 Booster Head body is painted R13 Signal Red. They are offered in a variety of configurations such as bottom or rear entry with screwed, flanged or roll groove connections available.
