Purpose and design features

The bracket is designed to hold the pipe in a vertical (or pre-determined inclined) position. It does not allow chimneys drawn from individual sections to bend. In addition, the support bracket takes the weight of the chimney.

The wall bracket for fixing the fireplace consists of the following main parts:

split ring surrounding the pipe; supplied with a gasket made of rubber or heat-resistant material;

bracket – a spatial structure consisting of a metal profile or bar, connecting the ring and the platform for fastening;

mounting platform – a metal plate to which the console is attached and having holes for attaching the structure to a wall or other building structure.

The support, or starting stirrup, instead of a ring covering the pipe, has a platform on which the lower end of the pipe rests. The brackets can be triangular for wall mounting and rectangular for floor support.

To fix cast-iron and plastic sewer pipes, it is enough to use special clamps with rubber gaskets. Their installation is extremely simple and does not require special tools. It is enough to competently prepare a plan for the distribution of sewer pipes and mark on it all the places where to install the fasteners.

Sometimes during repair work it is necessary to attach polypropylene pipes or other means of communication to the wall, for example, for laying a pipeline. The task, at first glance, seems quite simple, but it is not. How and what to fix the pipe to the wall will be discussed in this article.

Depending on the design, the following types of chimney supports are distinguished:

Departure

This is the most durable and powerful type – the whole chimney rests on it. Usually it is made of two cantilevered triangles from a durable metal profile with a wall thickness of 1-3 mm. From the side of the wall and from the side of the street, they are connected by jumpers, which add additional rigidity to the structure. A support platform with a cutout for an audit with a condensate drain valve is mounted on top. Sometimes, instead of a platform, another jumper is used, and the lower edge of the pipe rests on a square contour.

Wall

these are lighter structures, they do not support weight, their function is limited to fixing the vertical position of the pipe. It is a split ring and a light cantilever structure that connects the clamp and the wall mount panel.

Manufactured by stamping and welding from stainless steel, galvanized or painted ferrous metal.

With a small distance from the wall (up to 100 mm), a metal plate located perpendicular to the wall can be used to connect the ring to the bracket. This part of the split ring is welded to the semi-circular cutout of this plate, and the other end of the plate is bent and fixed to the wall.

Telescopic

In such structures, you can change the distance between the ring and the wall – one tube with a square profile can move inside another. These brackets are very convenient for mounting the fireplace to a solid log wall and other uneven surfaces. After the starting set point, the tubes are secured with a bolt and nut. A telescopic tube support is less reliable than a fully welded support, so it must be made from a larger section.
