Model JG Series Sprinkler Guards and Shields

Description

Globe Model JG sprinkler guards are accessories designed to protect specific GL Series sprinklers where the potential of mechanical damage might be expected. In addition, GL Series water shields are used to protect the sprinkler’s thermosensitive element from the water spray discharge of higher elevation sprinklers. The use of the Model JGS guard and shield assembly with an appropriate upright sprinkler provides an approved “Intermediate Level” upright sprinkler assembly suitable for rack storage applications (See GFS450 for specific approvals). Likewise, the use of the GL Series water shield with an appropriate pendent sprinkler, provides a listed/approved “Intermediate Level” pendent sprinkler assembly suitable for rack storage applications (See GFS450 for specific listings/approvals). If a head guard is also desired for this pendent “Intermediate Level” sprinkler assembly, the JG head guard, in accordance with Table A, may be utilized in addition to the shield. The guards are available in red or chrome plated.
