Horizontal sidewall sprinklers are designed for installation along a wall or the side of a beam and just
beneath a smooth ceiling. Installed with their centerline of waterway horizontal, these sprinklers produce
a quarter-spherical water discharge pattern that is predominately directed downward and outward from
the deflector; however, a portion of the spray is also directed towards the back wall.
Horizontal Sidewall Sprinklers (Ref. Figure A), are automatic sprinklers of the frangible bulb type, and standard spray, 1/2” orifice, 5 / 3 mm bulb. They are “standard / quick response - standard orifice sidewall sprinklers” intended for use in fire sprinkler systems designed in accordance with the standard installation rules recognized by the applicable Listing or Approval agency (e.g., UL Listing is based on NFPA 13 requirements).
Our Work Process
Sprinkler operation During a fire conditions, the thermal-sensitive liquid in the glass bulb expands, causing the bulb to shatter, releasing the button and spring seal assembly. Water flowing through the sprinkler orifice strikes the sprinkler deflector, forming a uniform spray pattern to extinguish or control the fire.
