SUPPORTING PIPELINE RUNS

All pipe runs, whether vertical or horizontal, must be supported in place. The pipe run's length, location, and joints will determine the kind of support to use and where to use it. The building material and type of pipe will also determine the kind of support to use.

The following illustration shows a sample of hangers and supports.
