The Fermentis data sheet says that it'll go as low as 53.7°F but ideally not below 59°F.

This has always been a struggle for me as I serve and ferment in the same "beer fridge".
SWMBO says I can't get another fridge, so I'm left with the dilemma of serving slightly warmer than I'd like, or fermenting cooler than I'd like.

Anybody got a recommendation?

I wanted to ferment low because I am nearing the capacity of the fermenter and I don't want an eruption. 

I wonder if a fermentation eruption sounds like this to the yeast cells?  :)

No, that is how they sound inside the fermenter - happily jamming away.

This is how they sound dying on the outside: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nAdniWncWu4

I've been getting good results with US-05 pitching a healthy amount at 64F where I hold it for 48 hrs, then up to 65F for 24 hrs, then up to 67F for remainder of ferment - at least for IPA or PA.
