Web straps?


Would these be accepted for drains and/or propane 1" steel? (From wood deliveries)
They're more than strong enough, and I roll and tape the ends to prevent unraveling. If I HAVE to go get perforated steel, I will though...

Thanks!

Are you using them as hangers?

The 1" steel for the gas is stiff enough to (almost) hold itSELF up as are the drains, so it's pretty much to stabilize, rather than holding any actual weight.

This is in a basement along the floor joists?

When you say drain lines are you talking about waste pipe? Like 3 or 4" PVC?

I don't think it would be a problem to use it for stability (side to side). For actual support I would feel better using designed hangers, especially for 1" black iron gas pipe.

As far as the ends unraveling, instead of taping the frayed ends, try burning it slightly with a flame...as you would do to keep nylon rope from unraveling.

Well whattayaknow? I found a roll of perf, so I can do both where needed. And yes, the pvc drains. The steel is galv. so it won't rust (as quickly?) so these will help if that ever happens. But my crawl is very insulated and always dry as a bone. Po) They can't complain if I use both, right? lol

Not sure where you live, but make sure galvanized steel is approved by code for gas lines. The main problem with it is flaking and clogging the gas orifices of appliances.

Nonono, the perforated STRAPPING is galvanized, not my gas line. Plain ol' black steel 1". Po)

Thanks for the clarification. I see no problem with either type strapping as long as your local code does not have any strict requirements.
