Simpson Banger Hanger Deck Inserts

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

Blue Banger Hanger® internally-threaded inserts are cast into the underside of concrete deck after being fastened to the top of wood forms or metal deck. The high-strength, easy-to-install wood-form and metal-deck anchors were tested and shown to provide outstanding performance in cracked and uncracked concrete under both static and seismic loading conditions. Once the concrete has cured, the anchors afford attachment points for threaded rod use to hang electrical, mechanical and plumbing utilities. The Blue Banger Hanger inserts are the only pre-pour inserts to offer the patented multi-thread design that enables one size insert to handle multiple diameters of threaded rod.

The Blue Banger Hanger is also available in a roof-deck insert version, offering a low-profile design that does not interfere in roofing material.
