Central Sprinklers®
(Division of Tyco®)

Sprinkler head RECALL notice (updated June 2007):
The voluntary recall and replacement program has ended but there are still a large number of buildings that fall within the scope of this recall. "Voluntary" does not have the meaning some individual AHJ's seem to think. The RECALL is a complete product recall and delisting of the subject sprinkler heads. The "voluntary" part of the program initiated by Central/Tyco involved the supply of a direct replacement for the cancelled heads on a "piece by piece" basis (your sprinkler company would have arranged for this) plus a small "allowance" for the change-out. This phase of the program is no longer supported by Tyco and any building owners that have missed the 1999 termination date must bear the entire cost of the replacement unless, of course, they had entered into a contract for service to a company engaged in the annual maintenance and testing of these components. In the latter case, the owner may have some recourse against the inspection provider if the technicians involved "missed" the fact that the heads were under recall. Links to the "Omega Recall" website now point to a wrist-watch manufacturer. For more information (including updated contact telephone numbers), follow this link.  Affected heads include all of the following model numbers:

  • C1 (or C-1)
