To compensate for pipe movement, a designer may choose from a variety of clevis hangers, roller hangers, and adjustable bands to support the pipe. These are linked to the supporting structure with rods and other hardware components. Beam attachments and other accessories are attached to the supporting structure to complete the pipe hanger assembly. All of these components must be strong enough to support the loads in the environment where they are installed.
Pipe supports can anchor the piping system to a fixed point or points that prevent the system from moving.
