I think that NFPA 30 hits on general sprinkler protection. It has been a while since I was in that book, but I seem to recall that OH2 is about right.

Roisum, SET Sent: Wednesday, February 14, 2018 9:39 AM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Flammable and Combustible Liquid Storage IFC 2012 Table 5003.1.1 gives the maximum allowable quantities of flammable and combustible liquids per control area. If the liquids are stored in approved cabinets you can increase the volume by 100%. I am trying to determine the proper sprinkler design for areas that contain flammable and combustible liquids that are stored in approved cabinets. NFPA 13, 2010 edition states that occupancies with moderate to substantial amounts of flammable or combustible liquids shall be designed to Extra Hazard Group 2 (5.4.2). However, I am confident that because the liquids are in cabinets that this space would not be designed to EH2, but I can't find any verbiage that explicitly says so. I believe Ordinary Hazard Group 2 is adequate but I need to document from the codes and standards my reasoning. Can anyone point me to a code or standard section that states that if flammable or combustible liquids are stored in approved cabinets that you basically don't have to account for their presence?...at least I believe that is the intent so please correct me if I am wrong.
