A-72 High Pressure Concealed Pendent Sprinkler - GL5655
High Pressure Model GL5655 Concealed Pendent
The Globe High Pressure Model GL5655 Concealed Pendent Sprinkler offers the ultimate in low profile, aesthetically pleasing appearance. All that is seen at the ceiling is a 3 5/16" diameter ceiling plate color finished to match the specifier's exact requirements. The Model GL5655 Concealed Sprinkler may be virtually invisible as it does not interrupt the "smooth flow" of the ceiling, and may be used in areas where flowing and static pressure do not exceed 300 psi. Globe's Concealed Sprinkler utilizes its frangible glass ampule type sprinkler which is located above the ceiling and concealed from view by the ceiling plate. The plate is soldered to the sprinkler special upper support assembly in three places. Upon the application of sufficient heat, the plate falls to the floor exposing the pendent spray sprinkler. At the ampule's rated temperature, the sprinkler opens discharging water onto the floor in its required and approved distribution pattern.
A special spring is attached to the pendent sprinkler deflector that serves to provide a constant tension against the ceiling plate. This feature virtually ensures freedom from environmental vibration problems.
