The sprinkler is available in both recessed and domed concealed models, and is pre-assembled with a threaded adapter for installation with a domed cover.

The VK638 uses Viking’s patented flow-shaper technology to provide larger coverage areas at lower flow and pressure requirements.

The 28 x 12 ft (8,5 x 3,7 m) coverage area is unique in the industry, providing a significant flow and pressure advantage for fire sprinkler systems where this area of coverage can be applied.
