Lot line window sprinkler protection: In the design drawings I have lot line window protected with standard concealed sprinklers. This same sprinkler is used to protect the whole room on the inside. Distances to all walls are less than 7'-6". The room is light hazard, and this only occurs in a single room.
Is this acceptable or should the window be protected by one sprinkler and a separate sprinkler for the room protection?
Also, is a standard pendent acceptable or would you rather have a Tyco Window Sprinkler (special application) for the window?
Thanks in advance.
