Traditionally, pipe hangers have been commodity products that are similar across manufacturers. Although low in material cost and sufficient at holding pipe, they can be expensive because of the long, tedious installation process. Most contractors install pipe by sliding each section through the hanger individually and later add turns, sprinkler heads, and branch lines.

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.
