I have to agree with Matt here.  If it is with-in 18" below the sprinklers
it is considered an obstruction, if it is just under the piping, it does not
allow for the water pattern to properly form to cover the room as the
sprinklers are designed.

I still sleeve pipe because I disagree with the shield allowance. To me it
is an obstruction

For your case, I would defer that to electrical folks as we do not know
their requirements per se.

Has anyone installed a hood/ shield for electrical equipment?  Can this be
something as simple as a sheet metal pan that covers the width and depth?

Suggestions, pictures, or name calling would be appreciated.



Thank you,
