Unit I: Legends,


Horizontal and vertical pipeline runs with fittings must be supported. The length of the pipe runs, their locations, and the joints will determine where to place the pipe supports. There are many types of pipe supports designed to hang or support the pipe. The building material and types of pipes will in many cases determine the kind of supports to use.

Pipe Supports


Supporting Horizontal Water Piping. Use tube clamps, U-hooks or self-nailing hooks, perforated bands, and one-hole clamps to support a horizontal pipe run to a joist.

Supporting Horizontal Water Piping


Supporting Vertical Water Piping. Use wood blockings to attach the pipe supports. The pipe supports which can be used to support a vertical water piping run are tube clamps, one-hole clamps, and perforated bands.
