can anyone give me advise on how design my shop with compressed air

business. i would like to know how to make a design to line my shop
with compressed air. Its a necessity for being as neat as possible. I
would like to know stuff like how thick pipes should be? where to

thanks in advance!

Copper, and metal pipe are common material. PVC is a liability due to its
shattering upon failure. There are alternative pvc style piping, one of them
is called Chem-aire that is ABS and does not shatter.
