Looking for an answer to a basic discussion point concerning sprinkler spacing. A pendent sprinkler is on a 10'-0" ceiling which is 4'-0" away (horizontally) from a sprinkler in a lower wide soffit, at 8'-0".
Based on the higher sprinkler being so close to the edge of the soffit, the soffit creates an obstruction for the higher sprinkler. However, the lower sprinkler should it activate will undoubtedly throw water to the floor space directly below the higher sprinkler, yet neither sprinkler will directly spray the other.
Are these two sprinklers (one at a higher elevation and one at a lower elevation) required to be a minimum of 6-ft apart horizontally?
