 • The Tyco Model ESFR-34 automatic fire sprinkler is approved for ceiling-only protection under a 55 foot (16,8m) ceiling with a minimum 6 foot (1,8m) aisle, which allows the most potential storage capacity of any Listed or Approved ceiling-only fire protection scheme
• Warehouses using the Tyco Model ESFR-34 automatic fire sprinkler at the maximum ceiling height of 55 feet (16,8m) and minimum aisle width of 6 feet (1,8m) can
