USFA Coffee Break Training: Sprinkler Temperature Ratings

Sprinklers mounted near ceilings may be difficult to examine to verify their designed operating temperature. This training vignette, “Sprinkler Temperature Ratings,” explains the standard color-coding system that helps installer and inspectors confirm the correct sprinkler is installed.

Coffee Break Training provides an overview of fire protection topics and does not include all details, requirements, or exceptions to the topics that are described. Always refer to nationally recognized design and installation codes and standards, the product manufacturer, or listing details for specific information.
