Tyco Fire Sprinkler Design
Tyco fire sprinkler systems come in a variety of styles, including upright, pendent, recessed pendent, and horizontal sidewall:
Commonly used in rooms without a drop ceiling (carparks, mechanical rooms, etc.), upright sprinkler heads face upwards and discharge water in a dome-shaped pattern underneath the head. Upright fire sprinklers from Tyco allow for more flexibility in branch line elevation and are better protected against accidental damage or tampering than other types of sprinkler heads.
Pendent sprinkler heads can be thought of as upright sprinklers upside-down – rather than facing up toward the ceiling, they are inverted and face the floor. Pendant sprinklers are commonly used in areas with a drop ceiling as they prevent water from spraying onto the ceiling material.
Used in lieu of pendent or upright sprinklers due to aesthetics, building construction, or economic considerations, horizontal sidewall sprinkler heads are designed for compact installation along a wall or on the side of a beam just beneath a smooth ceiling. Piping for horizontal sidewall sprinkler heads can be confined to corridors, closets, or service areas. Horizontal sidewall sprinkler heads can be used in light hazard applications (defined by NFPA 13 and NFPA 13R). They cannot be used for residential applications.

Tyco Dry Sprinkler Systems
Tyco DS-C Sprinkler System
The DS-C sprinkler head is designed for all levels of fire hazards. The dry pipe fire system holds no water in the pipes until a fire breaks out. Because no water sits in the pipes, the DS-C Tyco sprinkler is perfectly suited for rooms or buildings where sprinklers and connecting pipes may be exposed to freezing temperatures or where the sprinkler system must be seasonally drained.
Tyco DC-ECC Sprinkler System
The DS-ECC Tyco sprinkler is a standard, quick-response dry fire sprinkler designed to provide extra coverage for both light and ordinary hazards. Like the DS-C Tyco sprinkler head, the DS-ECC Tyco sprinkler contains a seal at the bottom of the main pipe to prevent water from entering the pipes when the sprinkler is not activated. As a result, the DC-ECC Tyco sprinkler is optimal for places where freezing temperatures could freeze the water inside the sprinkler pipes and potentially cause the pipes to burst.
