Model TY-L - Upright, Pendent, and Recessed Pendent Sprinklers
The TYCO Series TY-L, 5.6 and 8.0 K-factor, Upright and Pendent Sprinklers described in this data sheet are standard response -standard coverage, solder type spray sprinklers designed for use in light, ordinary, and extra hazard, commercial occupancies such as banks, hotels, shopping malls, factories, refineries, chemical plants, etc. The recessed version of the Series TY-L Pendent Sprinkler, where applicable, is intended for use in areas with a finished ceiling. It uses a two-piece Style 20 (1/2 inch NPT) or Style 30 (3/4 inch NPT) Recessed Escutcheon. The Recessed Escutcheon provides 1/4 in. (6,4 mm) of recessed adjustment or up to 1/2 in. (12,7 mm) of total adjustment from the flush pendent position. The adjustment provided by the Recessed Escutcheon reduces the accuracy to which the fixed pipe drops to the sprinklers must be cut.
- All hazards
- Discharges a hemispherical water spray pattern in the area beneath the sprinkler
- Designed for use in light, ordinary, and extra hazard, commercial occupancies such as banks, hotels, shopping malls, factories, refineries, chemical plants, etc.

Corrosion resistant coatings, where applicable, are utilized to extend the life of copper alloy sprinklers beyond that which would otherwise be obtained when exposed to corrosive atmospheres. Although corrosion resistant coated sprinklers have passed the standard corrosion tests of the applicable approval agencies, the testing is not representative of all possible corrosive atmospheres. Consequently, it is recommended that the end user be consulted with respect to the suitability of these coatings for any given corrosive environment. The effects of ambient temperature, concentration of chemicals, and gas/chemical velocity, should be considered, as a minimum, along with the corrosive nature of the chemical to which the sprinklers will be exposed.
An intermediate level version of the Series TY-L Pendent Sprinkler can be obtained by utilizing the Series TY-L Pendent Sprinkler in combination with the Model S Shield.

A copper tube sealed by two stainless steel balls holds a fusible alloy. When the rated temperature is reached, the alloy melts, the balls are forced toward each other releasing the tension mechanism, allowing the sprinkler to operate.
The TYCO Series TY-L, 5.6 and 8.0 K-factor, Upright and Pendent Sprinklers are intended for fire protection systems designed in accordance with the standard installation rules recognized by the applicable Listing or Approval agency (e.g., UL Listing is based on the requirements of NFPA 13, and FM Approval is based on the requirements of FM’s Loss Prevention Data Sheets). Only the Style 20 or 30 Recessed Escutcheon, as applicable, are to be used for recessed pendent installations.
