The Globe Model GL1160 Extra Large Orifice Sprinkler for use in NFPA 13 Systems is a low profile yet durable design which utilizes a 5mm frangible glass ampule as the thermosensitive element. The main use of this sprinkler is when minimal pressure is available and the use of smaller size orifice sprinklers would require the installation of a pump. This sprinkler series is available in various styles, temperature ratings and several finishes to meet many varying design requirements.

The heart of Globe's Model GL1160 sprinkler proven actuating assembly is a hermetically sealed frangible glass ampule that contains a precisely measured amount of fluid. When heat is absorbed, the liquid within the bulb expands increasing the internal pressure. At the prescribed temperature the internal pressure within the ampule exceeds the strength of the glass causing the glass to shatter. This results in water discharge which is distributed in an approved pattern.
