PT&P fabricated various sized saddle supports used to support water mains for the city of Houston. The pipe saddles, ranging from 30”-72” in length and 12” in width are made to cover 1/3 of the pipe’s circumference. They are made of A-304 stainless steel with a neoprene backing.
These saddles are used to provide a sliding surface between metal water mains and concrete base supports at fault crossings. The neoprene backing helps to dissipate any shock loads and provides an anti-skid surface at the fault crossing locations.
