This fire sprinkler head guard information page is to assist in the selection of the correct sprinkler head guards and escutcheons when ordering from Swift Fire Protection Catalog.

Some of the part numbers for fire sprinkler head guards have changed in 2007, and we have also added additional fire sprinkler head guard and escutcheon products.  Below you will find better quality photos that can be enlarged in order to see more details and understand the measurements for 1/2" vs. 3/4" sprinklers. 

Fire Sprinkler Head Measurements

Fire Sprinkler Head Size Measurements

When measuring fire sprinkler heads, remember that 1/2" sprinkler heads have an inside diameter of 1/2" and an outside diameter of approximately 3/4".

If you measure across the outside of the threads of a sprinkler head, and the outside diameter is approximately 3/4", you have a 1/2" sprinkler head and should order guards and escutcheons for 1/2" sprinkler heads.  If you measure across the threads of the sprinkler head and the measurement is approximately 1", you have 3/4" sprinkler heads and should order guards and escutcheons for 3/4" sprinkler heads. 


Fire Sprinkler Head Color  Temperature Code (Fahrenheit)

Fire Sprinkler Head Color  Temperature Code (Fahrenheit)

Fire Sprinkler heads are color coded for Fahrenheit temperature by the color of liquid in the bulb.  An orange colored liquid in the bulb means it is rated at 135 degrees, red 155, green 200, and blue 286.  If the temperature of the sprinkler head reaches the color coded temperature, the bulb will break and the fire sprinkler will activate.  Other sprinklers in the area will not begin to dispense water unless each individual sprinkler head reaches the specified temperature for which it is rated.
