Blue Banger Hanger® Cast-In-Place, Internally Threaded Inserts

Blue Banger Hanger® internally threaded inserts are cast into the underside of the concrete deck after being fastened to the top of wood forms or metal deck. Once the concrete has cured, the anchor provides an attachment point for threaded rod used to hang electrical, mechanical and plumbing utilities. The Blue Banger Hanger insert is the only pre-pour insert to offer the patented multi-thread design that enables one size insert to handle multiple diameters of threaded rod.

Blue Banger Hanger® - Metal Deck Insert

FEATURES

  • 75 mm plastic sleeve keeps internal threads clean.
  • Extended length of the sleeve allows easy location of the insert even with fireproofing on the underside of the deck. Also provides guidance to align threaded rod with the internal threads.
  • Installed height of 50 mm allows the insert to be used on top of, or between, deck ribs.
  • Compression spring keeps the insert perpendicular to the deck, even if it is bumped or stepped on after installation.
  • Multi-thread design: Each insert accepts 2–3 rod diameters.

INSTALLATION

  • Drill a hole in the metal deck using the appropriate diameter bit as referenced in the table.
  • Insert the hanger into the hole and strike the top so that the plastic sleeve is forced through the hole and expands against the bottom side of the deck. The anchor can also be installed by stepping on it.

INSTALLATION

  • Strike the top of the hanger and drive the 3 mounting nails into the forming material until the bottom of the hanger is flush with the plywood. The hanger should be sitting 90° perpendicular to the forming material.
