The sprinkler installation standards are generally concerned with where and how to install sprinklers inside of a building but sprinklers are sometimes required outdoors, too. Examples of sprinklers outside include exposure protection systems, assembly pavilions, eaves, and other projections. Concerns arise for corrosion, freezing, and other environmental conditions when sprinklers are installed in these applications. This lesson will review some of the situations requiring sprinklers to be installed outdoors as well as some of the special installation issues that must be considered.
