Products & Brands

GW Sprinkler develops, manufactures and markets a broad range of products for use in sprinkler, deluge, water spray and water mist systems. These range from automatic control valves, through water flow and pressure control devices, to water delivery spray nozzles and sprinkler heads. In addition, the company has forged close alliances with manufacturers of specialist components that complement its own. A continuous policy of research and development has enabled the company to maintain its position at the forefront of technology in line with the latest demands of the market place. Over the years it has developed numerous innovations and customer-inspired enhancements that have led to water-based fire protection systems becoming ever more effective and affordable.

For more than 20 years GW Sprinkler  was the manufacturer of high-end Angus Fire sprinkler products such as "Angus-S" automatic sprinkler heads, "Fyrhed" high velocity nozzles, "Thermospray" medium velocity nozzles and "MJC" (multiple jet control) valves. Since year 2013 the IP-rights for the Angus sprinkler and water spray product range were fully acquired by GW Sprinkler and these products are continuously being manufactured in Denmark - now exclusively under the GW Sprinkler brand name.

In year 2000 GW Sprinkler A/S acquired all IP rights, manufacturing and sales of the unique elastomeric sleeve Chubb 300 deluge valve after +15 years of manufacturing by Chubb in UK. This high-end valve series was developed in cooperation with leading off-shore endusers to provide a state of the art, heavy duty, low maintenance and reliable deluge water control. The "Chubb valves" have since year 2000 been manufactured by GW Sprinkler - and branded as GW C300.

It started off installing ventilation systems on ships, but in the 1960s it moved towards installing sprinkler systems. In 1970 it withdrew from ventilation completely and started to develop and manufacture its own sprinkler series. In 1984 the company moved to new purpose built facillities in Glamsbjerg.
