Your Guide to Choosing Clamps and Hangers

Are you looking to buy some clamps and hangers? If so, you're in luck! Here we'll teach you everything you need to know about choosing the correct clamps and hangers for your project. We'll cover everything from beam clamps to u-bolts so that you can find the perfect option for your toolbox. Let's get started!

10 Questions to Ask When Selecting the Right Hangers
When choosing the proper hanging and clamping solutions for your project, there are a few key factors you'll need to consider to ensure that you're making the best decision for your needs. Here are ten questions to ask when selecting suitable clamps and hangers:

1. What is the maximum weight capacity of the hanger?
2. How easy is it to install the hanger?
3. Does the hanger come with a warranty?
4. What is the expected lifespan of the hanger?
5. What is the price point of the hanger?
6. Is the hanger adjustable?
7. What are the minimum and maximum openings of the hanger?
8. Is the hanger weather-resistant?
9. What is the finish of the hanger?
10. Are there any particular features or benefits of the hanger?

By asking these ten questions, you'll be able to evaluate better which hanger is the best fit for your needs. With so many options on the market, research is vital to find the perfect hanging solution for your jobsite.

Beam Clamps
Beam clamps are an essential part of any rigging system and are used to attach various rigging components to the beam of a structure. Many different types of beam clamps are available on the market, each designed for specific loads and applications.

The most common type of beam clamp is the standard beam clamp. Standard beam clamps are typically made from cast iron or steel and have various attachment options, including threaded holes, bolts, and weld-on tabs.
Heavy-duty beam clamps are usually made from forged steel or aluminum. These clamps typically have a higher weight capacity than standard beam clamps and a more robust attachment system.

Adjustable beam clamps are another type that is becoming increasingly popular in the rigging industry. Adjustable beam clamps are more versatile than standard or heavy-duty beam clamps and are perfect for applications where loads may need to be adjusted frequently.

Clevis Hangers
Clevis hangers are essential pieces of hardware that are used to support pipes and other structures. They are made from various materials, including steel, copper, and aluminum. There are many different clevis hangers, each designed for a specific purpose.

Clevis hangers are most commonly used to support pipes that run vertically along walls or ceilings. They can also support horizontal piping, though this is less common.

Clevis hangers are attached to the pipe using a clevis pin, inserted through a hole in the hanger, and then secured with a nut and bolt.

Riser Clamps
Riser clamps are devices used to support vertical pipe or tubing runs. They typically consist of a metal bracket that attaches to the underside of the pipe or tubing and a second bracket that supports the weight of the pipe from below. Riser clamps are available in various sizes and styles to accommodate different applications.

One of the most important factors to consider when selecting riser clamps is the material that they're made from. The two most common materials used for riser clamps are steel and aluminum. Steel riser clamps are typically more expensive than aluminum but offer superior strength and durability. Aluminum riser clamps are lighter in weight and easier to install, but they may not be able to support as much weight as steel clamps.

Swivel Rings
A swivel ring is a mechanical device that helps connect two shafts while allowing for relative movement. The ability to rotate or spin in a circle distinguishes a swivel ring from other types of rings. Swivel rings are commonly used in various automotive, aerospace, and manufacturing industries.

There are many different types of industrial swivel rings available on the market today. Some of the most popular include ball-bearing swivel rings, flange-mounted swivel rings, and sleeve-type swivel rings. Ball-bearing swivel rings are designed for applications requiring high loads and speeds. Flange-mounted swivel rings are typically used in lower-speed applications. Sleeve-type swivel rings are designed for high-speed applications with relatively light loads.

Split Ring Hangers
Split ring hangers are an essential type of pipe support. They are commonly used in residential and commercial plumbing applications to support vertical pipes. Split ring hangers are also called J-bolt hangers because they consist of a J-shaped bolt inserted into a split ring. The split ring is then placed around the pipe and tightened, holding the pipe in place.

There are many advantages to using split ring hangers. They are easy to install and remove, and they can be reused. Split ring hangers also provide a high level of support for vertical pipes, making them ideal for use in applications where the pipe will be under stress.

Shields & Saddles
Shields & saddles are necessary for the protection of your pipes. They are placed outside your pipe to provide a barrier between the pipe and the elements. Many types of pipe shields and saddles are available on the market today, so choosing the right one is crucial.

Pipe shields are commonly used in commercial and industrial settings where pipes are subject to high levels of wear and tear. Pipe shields and saddles are made from a variety of materials, including metal, plastic, and rubber. Some pipe shields and saddles are designed to be used with specific types of pipes, while others can be used with any type of pipe. Pipe shields and saddles can be purchased in a variety of sizes to fit any type of pipe.

Roller Supports & Straps

Roller supports are designed to provide support for piping systems that need to be able to expand and contract due to temperature changes. These supports feature rollers that allow the pipe to slide back and forth while providing adequate support. Roller supports are ideal for use in applications where thermal expansion is a concern, such as in hot water piping systems.

U-Bolts & All-Thread Rod
U-bolts are named for their U-shaped design and are useful for various applications, including attaching pipes to machines. All-thread rod is a continuous length of thread that can be cut to any desired length. It is commonly used in plumbing and electrical applications.

Clamps and hangers are essential accessories for many contractors. Choosing the best clamp or hanger for your job is easy with the right information. Contact White Cap today if you have questions about which clamp or hanger is best for your project. We would be happy to help!
