I am trying to install a sidewall sprinkler head with a coverage area of 14' x 14'. The room has a pendant sprinkler that is less than 6' away from where the sidewall sprinkler would be located. NFPA 13 code 126.96.36.199.6 states that there cannot be adjacent or opposite sidewall heads in the same room and 188.8.131.52 states that sidewall heads cannot be less than 6 feet apart. If the other head in the room (pendant head) is within 6 feet and adjacent to the sidewall head, is this allowed? The pendant head would be approximately 3" below the and the sidewall is 6 inches below.
