Versatile square pattern nozzles

Versatile square pattern nozzles: The Rain Bird range of SQ Series Square Pattern Nozzles has been extended with the addition of the ¾ Square Pattern version.

These highly efficient and precise low-volume spray nozzles are ideal for irrigating difficult corners and small areas such as narrow planting beds, shrub islands within residential, commercial or public landscapes and around pedestrian walkways. The new ¾ Square Pattern is particularly suitable for surface watering the perimeter of trees and shrubs whilst avoiding the trunk.

The 1.4–3.5 bar SQ Series is pressure compensated and the square spray pattern offers efficient and virtually mist free controlled irrigation. This means optimum coverage for non-turf watering applications and reduced risk of overspray and potential damage to adjacent areas. The patented nozzle design gives the irrigation system designer or installer the option of 0.8 or 1.2 metre throws from one SQ nozzle and flow rates from 22.7 to 90.8 l/hour.

From an installation design and layout viewpoint, the edge-to-edge pattern capability of the SQ Series ensures full coverage of an area and reduces the need for overlap. The number of nozzles required is therefore reduced, not only simplifying designs and decreasing material costs, but also significantly reducing installation times.

In additon to the new ¾ Square Pattern nozzle, the SQ Series is available for quarter, half and full irrigating patterns.These can be used individually or combined in multiple ways to provide the exact coverage and flow rates required for an installation, whilst accommodating any future expansion of the area to be irrigated. The nozzles can be fitted directly on to a variety of spray heads or risers with adapters and accessories available too.

With fewer nozzles needed and the high levels of efficiency and control that they provide, the versatile SQ Series can typically provide up to 65% water savings when compared with using alternative nozzle designs. For more information, contact Peter Longman, Rain Bird Europe,
