Because each fire suppression system is designed to protect the unique building and materials within, there are a variety of possible components at every junction of the system. This variation includes pipes and sprinkler heads, which are selected based on the type of system implemented and the hazards and obstacles within each room.
Pipes vary in material and size based on the type of building and hazards present. Sprinkler heads come in many models, and factors such as room or corridor size, hazard types, and interior decor can affect the selection of head type.
Types of Sprinkler Heads:
- Pendant: hangs from ceiling, water is released downward onto a deflector.
- Upright: sits on top of pipe, water is released upward onto a deflector.
- Sidewall: mounted on wall in small areas or hallways, sprays outward onto deflector.
- Concealed: sits inside ceiling cavity covered by ornamental cap and exposed prior to water release.
