Not all temperatures and configurations may carry all Listings and Approvals. See data sheet for conditions of specific Listings and Approvals.


The Globe Specific Application Attic Protection Scheme has undergone full scale fire testing with Underwriters Laborato­ries and is Listed to be utilized per NFPA 13 in conformance with the New Technology and Equivalency Sections as well as the Special Sprinkler Section.

The Globe Specific Application Attic Protection Scheme has been engineered to consider all construction conditions typically found in the attic built environment. The scheme utilizes a unique strategy with two distinct types of special sprinklers. The positioning and use of these sprinklers in conjunction with each other, and their complimentary ef­fects on fire control has been carefully considered for these specific Attic structure hazards. Consequently, the required number of sprinklers to calculate and system demand is drastically reduced from that seen with standard protec­tion schemes or even the more recent Special Application schemes.
