Bang-It concrete inserts are designed for installation in and through composite steel deck (i.e. “pan-deck”) used to support newly poured concrete floors or roof slabs. After installation, the protective sleeve of the insert protrudes below the surface of the deck. The sleeves are color coded by size and allow overhead attachment of steel threaded rod in sizes ranging from 1/4" to 3/4" in diameter. The sleeve prevents sprayed fireproofing material and acoustical dampening products from clogging the internal threads of the insert. It also prevents burying, masking or losing the insert location. A hex impact plate offers resistance to rotation within the concrete as a steel threaded rod is being installed.
General Applications and Uses
Hanging Pipe and Sprinkler Systems. HVAC Ductwork and Strut Channels. Suspending Trapeze and Cable Trays. Mechanical Unit Overhead Utilities. Conduit and Lighting System. Seismic Loading and Cracked Concrete.
Features and Benefits
Fast and simple to install, low installed cost. Color coded by size for simple identification. Bang-It can be installed in lower flute of steel deck as little as 1.5" topping thickness (see details). Hex head does not rotate when set. Insert design allows for full thread engagement. All sizes suitable for tension and shear loading.
