Pendant sprinkler is UL and cUL listed for coverage areas from 12 ft. x 12 ft. through 20 ft. x 20 ft. The manufacturer claims that it has one of the lowest profiles of similar products and, when fully recessed, the deflector is a mere 1-1/8 in. from the ceiling. The minimum spacing for this sprinkler is 8 ft., which makes laying out sprinklers easier and may result in fewer sprinklers required.
