Globe Fire Sprinklers GL5680 recessed pendent sprinkler

Product Profile

The Globe GL Series Dry Type Pendent Sprinkler is designed for use in special applications such as freezing environments and conditions where sediment or foreign materials might accumulate in ordinary drop nipples.

The Globe GL Series Dry Type Pendent Sprinkler utilizes a frangible glass ampule sprinkler. At the ampule's rated temperature, the sprinkler opens releasing the bulb seat, causing the inner tube assembly to move, allowing spring assembly to pivot alongside the inner tube. At this time, water flows through the sprinkler and is distributed by the deflector, in an approved discharge pattern.
