Where would one get the sprinkler supplies and the expertise to help guide me through an installation.


Same place you getting this info…the internet. It really seems like to me that there is way too much material in a wood shop that will burn to count on a fire extinguisher. Seems like a timing thing, all that stuff could get away form you fast and quickly get beyond what a fire bottle can put out…..and alarms just tell you when to run, but they don’t put out the fire…a sprinkler stays back and puts it out while you are running.
One place you might want to try is Lowe’s or Home Depot…many states and counties have passed ordinances requiring new construction to have sprinkler systems. Many insurance companies give discounts for sprinkler systems…this has started a do it yourself market that big box suppliers are starting to cater to. About once a month our local store has a seminar on the weekends about how easy it is to install your own system.
