ONE INCH ADJUSTABLE
FLAT PLATE CONCEALED PENDENT
DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION
The Globe Model GL5603 Extended Coverage One Inch Adjustable Concealed Pendent Sprinkler for
Light Hazard occupancies has a flat plate profile that utilizes a 3mm frangible glass ampule as the ther-
mosensitive element. It features economy, aesthetics and the lowest allowable water flow with a nominal
1" of adjustment for easier installation. The combination of the 3mm frangible glass ampule and specially
designed deflector make the Model GL5603 the ultimate in life safety and fire control. It can be installed
wherever standard light hazard extended coverage concealed pendent sprinklers are specified. This
sprinkler should be used advisedly and under the direction of approving authorities having jurisdiction, in
accordance with their listings and in accordance with NFPA 13.
All that is seen at the ceiling is the 3 5/16" diameter flat ceiling plate color finished to match the
specifier's exact requirements. The ceiling plate is soldered to the sprinkler's special upper support
assembly in three places. Upon the application of sufficient heat, the plate falls to the floor exposing
the pendent spray sprinkler. At the prescribed temperature the internal pressure within the ampule
exceeds the strength of the glass causing the glass bulb to shatter. This results in water discharge which
is distributed in an approved pattern.
