Baffle Plates(1) come with 22mm or 26mm diameter holes, to suit 15 or 20mm Sprinkler Heads(2).
Therefore, when they used in retail stores and warehouses, they act as a steel barrier that retains the heat from a fire in order to activate the sprinklers.
Coupled with sprinkler guards, they are easy to install and require very little upkeep.
Due to this, the heat-responsive element of the sprinkler is shielded from direct water sprays from nearby sprinklers or run-off water from sprinklers above, both of which can interfere with sprinkler operation.
