Question

J-shaped paintable pipe hangers


i have 3/4 in black pipe exposed in the living room and would like to replace the existing couple of hanger straps, which are unsightly, with some J-shaped paintable hanger straps, kind of like i've seen the make for PVC. they would fit more seamlessly into the visual setting. any idea where i could get such hangers ?

pretty much any of the 'big box' stores and most hardware stores should have them. they even have fancy scrollwork ones if that'd fit better. i'm just curious what type of black pipe would be showing in the living room???

Most of the time, black pipe is gas. Gas is not typically hung with plastic j-hangers. They just aren't made for that purpose. It is too heavy in my opinion, and should be hung with metal hangers that will not let the pipe deflect at all, which stresses the connections.

Sioux Chief basically makes all the hangers used in plumbing. You can get their products at Home Depot and basically all home centers and plumbing stores. Here's a link to their full line of hangers.....

on its way to the appliance, the pipe coming into the house from the street. leaving exposed brick (and consequently pipe) for the aesthetics.

OK. Not a great picture but they'd sure work. These hangers are fastened around the pipe and hang vertically from a section of threaded rod. On the ceiling you mount a small cast iron flange that the threaded rod screws into...A couple screws mount it. They're widely used in commercial construction (not a home center more than likely) and look pretty clean. Especially if you're going for that brick building with pipes exposed look! Any plumbing supply house should have them.

Here's a pic of the part that goes around the pipe that the threaded rod screws into...
