Hangers & Supports

Hangers and supports keep piping systems suspended in place and are a necessary part of any piping project. Pipe hangers generally carry the weight from above with supporting members in tension, while pipe supports generally carry the weight from below with supporting members in compression. This section covers the various types of hangers and supports that have been developed to accommodate different needs, including insulated pipe, allowance for horizontal movement, and expansion and contraction of piping. In addition, this section covers the various items used to attach hangers and supports to the structure and maintain proper piping alignment.
