Pipe brackets are a piece of shaped metal used to support a pipe. This support is typically mounted on the wall or on a floor. The brackets are made in a triangular shape for stability to transfer the weight to the wall or floor.
Pipe brackets are also known as pipe hangers when the support comes from a ceiling or overhead beam to support the pipe.
More sophisticated pipe brackets and supports add insulation, shock absorbers to minimize damage from displacement of load in the pipe, and "snubbers" that help relieve pressure. These advanced brackets are more common in industrial machinery and factory settings.
