A high rise kit or standpipe kit is a bag containing the equipment and tools your crew needs for successful standpipe operations. Commercially available kits typically include everything you need to connect to the standpipe and control the flow of water. Many fire departments add tools and resources to their kit to personalize it for their community's needs.

A One-Piece Standpipe Valve
When you get to the standpipe, you need to connect and get flowing. Most commercially available standpipe kits supply a separate 45-degree elbow, gated valve, and pressure gauge. The configurable valve in our kit eliminates your need to connect three or four separate pieces in favor of a single, time-saving piece that incorporates these three elements.
You can configure your valve at the time of order. Configurations include the valve handle on the left or right side. You can also choose not to have an internal valve and use the piece as a standpipe elbow with pressure gauge.
For configurations that include the valve, our half-ball design is included. This allows easy movement and prevents the valve from slamming shut under pressure.
360 Degree Versatility
Access and visibility are key when using your high rise kit. The one-piece angled waterway swivels 360-degrees to direct the hose away from the wall and standpipe. This allows for a simple connection that works in most situations and reduces your risk of hose kinks.
The pressure gauge also swivels 360-degrees to give you easy visibility in tight spaces.
TFT’s High Rise Kits are a standpipe valve solution that is configurable to meet your needs. This configuration has no internal valve and can be used as a standpipe elbow with pressure gauge. It’s an easy one-piece solution that you don’t have to piece meal together from three or four pieces; simply connect the valve and you’re ready to go. The kits include a compact duffel bag, 2.5” (64mm) standpipe elbow with pressure gauge, (2) spanner wrenches, a 2.5”x1.5” reducer for use with a 1.5” coupled hose off the valve, and a 1.5”x 2.5” increaser for break and extend hose operations off of a ball shutoff valve.
