Pipe supports

Dear All,

In most of our projects (firewater mains, water spray systems, sprinkler systems), we are facing the issue related to pipe supports design. 

We are fire protection designers and we do not have any structural/civil engineer or any tools/software's to calculate and design the pipe supports.


We usually provide the pipe supports according to our previous field experience and in most of the projects the client will request a calculation to confirm the selection of the structural members selection & foundation sizes/reinforcement... etc


I am requesting to have any clarification or justification from the NFPA standards to the supports design/sizing.
