I have seen window sprinklers spaced across an entire wall of a building that has windows on the exterior and I have been told it has to do with spreading fire to a building next to it.
I have also seen window sprinklers on the exterior of a building where there is a metal fire staircase next to the building outside of windows. Any insight on either of these scenarios as to why the sprinklers would be necessary?
