Pipe Hanger Specifications

 

TABLE 1:

MAXIMUM HORIZONTAL SPACING BETWEEN PIPE SUPPORTS FOR STANDARD WEIGHT STEEL PIPE*

Pipe Support Spacing and Recommended Hanger Rod Sizes

The above spacing and capacities are based on pipe filled with water. Additional valves and fittings increase the load and therefore closer hanger spacing is required. *Many codes and specifications state “pipe hangers must be spaced every 10ft. regardless of size.” This, or any local specification must be followed.
