When I worked in the metal building industry, we almost always used 3 psf collateral load. The relatively small piping for typical runs can be covered by 1 psf, but when you get to the larger trunk lines, 3 psf is sometimes not enough. And for the larger lines, individual attachment points can have very larges applied loads (large as in several hundred pounds), so I typically assume a sprinkler load for design, then back-check the framing once the final sprinkler layout is determined. 3 psf is probably a good starting point, but you need to consider the specific situation.
WHAT'S A GOOD PSF VALUE TO USE SPRINKLERS? NOTE TYPE V 1 HOUR.
