Limiting Exposure to Crystalline Silica Dust

CRYSTALLINE SILICA

One of the biggest health risks to installers who frequently work with concrete is exposure to crystalline silica dust. Crystalline silica is found in many naturally-occurring minerals and is common in concrete. Although harmless in a set slab, when the set concrete is drilled or cut, the dust flies into the air and can be easily breathed in by a contractor who is not taking proper precautions. An estimated 2 million workers are at risk of negative health effects in the United States alone.

Three Features That Can be Prefabricated with the Drop-in Loop Hanger

Posted by Colin Andrews on May 19, 2017 9:57:19 AM

DROP-IN LOOP HANGER:

Traditionally, loop hangers have been commodity products that are mostly similar across manufacturers. Although they are low in material cost and sufficient at holding pipe, they can be very costly because of the long, tedious installation process. Most contractors typically install pipe by sliding each section through the hanger individually and then adding turns, sprinkler heads, and branch lines later. The whole process is timely and involves hours of dangerous overhead work.

The CADDY Drop-in Loop Hanger makes installation much simpler and quicker. Because the pipe assemblies do not need to slide through the hanger, large assemblies can be prefabricated on the ground and installed in one piece.
