Strange Observations – Part 3

Architectural Design Blocking Sprinkler Web 2Continuing in a series of strange things that I have seen while consulting at hospitals….

This picture shows an architectural design that was mounted from the ceiling to give the hospital nursing unit a more aesthetic look. It probably was installed before the sprinkler heads as it had that “1970’s” look, and the sprinkler heads appears to be of a more recent vintage.

But if that is the case, wouldn’t the sprinkler installer realize that the placement of his sprinkler head was impaired by the architectural design?
