BRACKETING

Pipe support except for the EPAMS® system is designed to only carry the weight of the pipe and its content, which makes the specifiers’ design work easier.

 

Support for horizontal pipework (wall and ceiling)

The general recommendation for horizontal pipework is two load bearing brackets per pipe. As an indication, they should be installed 0.75 m from each spigot so that, ideally, the distance between two brackets is 1.5 m. Installation shall respect a slight fall, around 1 or 2%, and 0.5% as a minimum, (0.5 cm per metre).

Support for vertical pipework

For vertical waste or rainwater stacks, the brackets aim to prevent the pipework from falling over. It is recommended that one bracket be fitted for each floor level. Ideally, the bracket should be installed on the first third of the upper spigot and even closer to a socket joint.

Bracketing installations, openings and sealings are prohibited in pre-stressed girders.

SPECIFIC BRACKETING FOR ACOUSTIC INSULATION

PAM Acoustic dampener

For the requirements of extreme acoustic comfort (luxury buildings, auditoriums ...), Pam’Acoustic is an acoustic dampener, which, placed between the frame and the support collar of the cast iron pipe, makes it possible to achieve the exceptional structural noise level of 5 dB (A), that is, almost silence.

 

Sound insulation in bracketing

The acoustic damper is mounted between the wall or ceiling and the pipe bracket and dampens the noise generated in drainage pipe systems. It can be used with M8 and M10 thread rods.

  1. Dampener – elastomer EPDM
  2. M8-M10 – threaded nut: galvanised steel
  3. Stainless steel housing, A2
  4. Thread connection with 17 mm key value: galvanised steel

PIPEWORK STABILITY

Stack support pipe

On vertical straight runs, stack support pipes should be installed to address the stacks’ weight. At the bottom of the stack, the first stack support pipe addresses both the pipes' weight and the end thrust effort. For the last case, it is recommended that the support and fixings be adapted accordingly. We recommend positioning the first stack support pipe at the base of the first floor, and then every subsequent fifth floor, in the case of a standard average 2.5 m between floors, or more generally every 15 m.

Stack support pipe and acoustic insulation

The support bracket of the stack support is covered with a rubber gasket to limit the transmission of structure-borne noise emitted by the drainage network at slab level.

During laboratory tests carried out in 2019*, a stack assembly including a stack support pipe on a console support and a rubber-lined bracket, both fixed to a wall with a surface density of 220 kg/m2, showed slightly better results than the same installation made with two fixings with rubber-lined brackets. In this particular installation, the use of stack support pipes does not affect acoustic performance.

*Tests carried out according to standard EN 14366
