Maximum reliability.
Proven performance.
For over 70 years Floway has been producing vertical turbine pumps
for customers throughout the world. During this time our vertical
turbine fire pumps have become known for maximum reliability and
proven performance.

Floway fire pumps are Listed, Approved, or Certified by the following
standards or approving authorities to meet or exceed NFPA-20:

    s Underwriters’ Laboratories, Inc. (UL) (C-UL)
    s Factory Mutual (FM)
    s ASL (Singapore)

Our fire pumps are designed to provide the best fire protection
possible. If a fire occurs, a reliable fire protection system is often the
difference between minor inconveniences and major expenses due to
property damage, destroyed records, and plant or factory downtime.

Insurance companies worldwide recognize the value of Listed,
Approved or Certified fire protection systems. In many high risk
situations insurance savings alone will pay for the entire fire
protection system.

Floway fire pumps are used worldwide to protect properties ranging
from offshore platforms to refineries, power plants, industrial operations,
commercial buildings, military installations and rapid transit systems.

Our main manufacturing facility in Fresno, California consists of over
200,000 square feet of production area. Support is provided by a
global network of regional managers, manufacturer’s representatives,
agents and authorized service centers.
