What are the 2 types of sprinkler heads?

There are 4 common varieties of fire sprinkler heads: pendent, upright, sidewall & concealed – each with their own particular use.

What are the parts of a sprinkler head?

Each sprinkler head consists of the deflector, fusible link or bulb, plug and the sprinkler head frame. If the temperature rises by more than 30°C relative to the ambient temperature, the sprinkler head fusible link or bulb trips thus allowing the water spray to eject the plug.

How many feet apart should sprinkler heads be?

12-15 feet apart

Sprinkler heads must be a maximum of 12-15 feet apart, depending on the hazard rating of the space (it ranges from Light Hazard to Extra Hazard 1&2), and at least half that distance from the nearest walls (typically 7.5 feet away).

How do I calculate sprinkler spacing?

Take the sprinkler head watering DIAMETER and multiply it by 0.6 to get the absolute maximum distance that should ever occur between any two adjacent sprinklers. (Remember most manufacturer’s give you the radius of the sprinkler, you need to multiply by 2 to get the diameter.)

  4. One or more manifolds.
  5. One or more sprinkler valves.
  6. One or more valve boxes to house the manifold and valves.
  7. A 24-volt controller to automate the sprinklers.

What is the maximum height of sprinkler head?

The maximum ceiling height shall be 40 ft. The minimum operating pressure shall be either 30 psi or 60 psi based upon the applicable storage and ceiling height for the installation as follows: 30 psi for storage heights up to 25 ft. with a maximum ceiling height of 30 ft.

What is the most efficient sprinkler head?

The MP Rotator is the most efficient sprinkler nozzle available on the market today. This high efficiency rotating nozzle has been defined as a water-saving device, perfect for retrofitting older systems and great for new installations. The MP Rotator was designed with efficiency and sustainability in mind.

What is the minimum distance between sprinkler heads?

The minimum spacing between two sprinklers is 6 feet. The maximum distance a sprinkler can be installed from a wall is half the maximum spacing between two sprinklers. The minimum distance a sprinkler can be installed from a wall is 4 inches.

What is the 18 inch rule?

The purpose of the “18-inch rule” is to prevent storage or any other obstruction from interfering with the spray of water from a sprinkler head during a fire. It is intended to prevent a situation in which the obstruction is within 18-inches of the ceiling and might be between the sprinkler head and the fire.

How many sprinklers can I run on one line?

With your 10 gpm flow rate at your spigot, you could run two sprinklers at 5 gpm each. The best set-up is to run two hoses from the spigot–each to one sprinkler. Suggested sprinklers for this set-up are the Residential Sled Base Sprinklers or the Tripod Sprinklers.

How far can a sprinkler head be off a wall?

from a single wall. Again, normally, standard spray sprinklers can be placed up to 7.5 ft. (2.3 m) from any wall.

How many square feet does a sprinkler head cover?

For example for storage applications the standard sprinklers used in CMDA, ESFR, and CMSA range between 100-130 square feet of coverage per sprinkler head. In the case of the extended coverage heads the square footage can range between 144-196 square feet per sprinkler head.
