Top Sprinkler Cover

      A molded plastic part or sheet metal fabricated sprinkler cover
10 is placed over the open part 12 of a top cover 14 of a
computer cabinet 16 (see the figure).  The sprinkler cover has a
draft angle to have water run off.

      The figure also shows the main top cover with a "trough 18" to
accept the water run-off from the sprinkler cover.

      The purpose of the sprinkler cover is to prevent water damage
to computer components in the cabinet from overhead sprinkler
discharge or ceiling water pipe failure.
