Dry Sprinklers: Quick Response: Upright

Hide...
The Globe Quick Response GL Series Dry Type Upright Sprinkler is designed for use in special applications such as freezing environments. As an example, they may be efficiently used when connected to a wet type sprinkler system and extended into an unheated attic space.

The Globe Quick Response GL Series Dry Type Upright Sprinkler utilizes a 3mm frangible glass ampule as the thermosensitive element. This provides sprinkler operation approximately six times faster than ordinary sprinklers. At the ampule's rated temperature, the sprinkler opens releasing the bulb seat, causing the inner tube assembly to move, allowing the spring assembly to pivot alongside the inner tube. At this time, water flows through the sprinkler and is distributed by the deflector, in an approved discharge pattern. It can be installed wherever standard spray sprinklers are specified but offers the additional feature of greatly increased safety to life. Quick Response Sprinklers should be used advisedly and under the direction of approving authorities having jurisdiction.
