About FlashShield

FlashShield flexible gas piping provides installation time savings for the contractor, and allows for greater design flexibility around the use of gas fired appliances for the architect and contractor.  FlashShield metallically shielded flexible gas pipe provides the highest level of lightning protection available and is the only flexible gas piping product to meet the electrical arcing requirements of the ICC-ES PMG LC1027 listing criteria. Due to product flexibility, FlashShield piping can be routed through a structure similarly to pulling wire.  The continuous nature of the piping runs reduces fitting connections and potential leak points by up to 80% that would otherwise be present in a rigid gas piping installation.


ARCOM, the specification experts, exclusively publishes MasterSpec®, a product of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), reaching over 60,000 design professionals involved in building projects. ARCOM owns and publishes SpecText® for use by engineers for infrastructure projects, including water and wastewater utilities and equipment. ARCOM provides extensive product and manufacturer information through cloud-based specification resources, custom manufacturer specifications, and the SpecBuilder Expert platform.
