ABSTRACT

Coffee Break Training: Automatic Sprinklers: Sprinklers Near Heat Sources   [open pdf - 185KB]

"Sprinklers installed near heat sources should be selected with consideration for the potential accidental operation as a result of short- or long-term exposure to elevated temperatures. According to National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 13, 'Standard for the Installation of Automatic Sprinkler Systems', these locations should be given special attention to provide sprinklers having other than ordinary-temperature classification (135 to 170 °F [57 to 77 °C]), unless other temperatures are determined or unless high-temperature sprinklers are used throughout the remainder of the space."
