Can your hanger pass the test?

A London-based mechanical contractor called BISON on a Wednesday afternoon looking for an urgent solution to a fixing issue; the task involved suspending pipework with a loaded weight of around 150kg from the concrete slab ceiling above, however fixing was proving challenging due to an uneven slab and the wedge anchors they’d been using previously were bursting the substrate. After a discussion with our team in which we identified the Fischer FBS rod hangers as an alternative method of fixing, the contractor took delivery on the following Thursday of the product, delivered direct to site on one of our own delivery trucks.

With a maximum load rating of 6.4kN according to Fischer’s data, we knew that the FBS rod hanger was more than adequate for the task in hand – particularly as we’d recently tested the same rod hanger to 15kN failure! Result – project completed, fixings installed, job completed and one satisfied client.
