It's clear that a painted sprinkler is a sprinkler that must be replaced, but does the same hold true for semi-recessed escutcheons?
Specifically, take your typical 1/2" chrome recessed pendent sprinkler. The 2-piece escutcheon (inside disk and outer ring) is listed with the sprinkler.
Years after installation, sprinklers were masked off properly and ceiling was painted. However, in most cases, the outer ring was also painted.
n some cases, the outer rings and inner discs have paint on them. No paint is on the sprinklers.
Are the escutcheons required to be cleaned off or replaced?
