Sidewall Model for Soffits

The FlexHead® Sidewall Model for Soffits uses strut to secure the FlexHead® sprinkler hose to the building structure. This model is perfect for hotel applications when you have a soffit in a room where a sidewall sprinkler head needs to be installed. This configuration allows the installer to attach the strut in the general location of the sprinkler head and adjust it later once the final fit-up is ready to be completed.

The flexible hose can be adjusted up and down along the length of the strut and within the pipe clamp to get perfect head placement without any reconfiguration of sprinkler piping. These models are designed for use in commercial Sheetrock ceilings having a soffit within the ceiling where sprinkler coverage is required.
