Determining the correct height of a fire sprinkler relative to structure and ceilings or roofs is not typically a difficult task. Yet, the more I explored the basic premise the more I realized how different the needs for each sprinkler type are.
This week I've been working on a cheatsheet for fire sprinkler deflector heights. It's a flowchart that helps direct the sprinkler height and code reference based on the type of sprinkler. Click here to download a PDF copy.

Take a look and let me know what you think. Thanks & have a great week!

I've been told that for the ceiling change =< 36", the sprinkler at the higher ceiling can have its coverage obstructed if the ceiling transition isn't kosher with Table 220.127.116.11.2 (13, for SSU/SSP). Would y'all agree?
