There's a fully-sprinklered jail renovation that is using 18-foot long (13-foot wide) four-man pre-engineered steel jail cells.
Typically we would use sidewall institutional-style sprinklers which can throw up to 16-feet in length. The goal is typically to conceal the piping behind the cell so that it is inaccessible to those within the cell.
Has anyone encountered these longer cells, and if so is there a solution other than putting a sidewall at the front and back of the cell?
