Bracketing technical: ductile iron brackets

ENSIGN pipe systems and ductile iron brackets

Pipe support bracket

The unique, all-purpose, lightweight, ductile iron bracket incorporates an elongated slot at the fixing point.

This allows both vertical and lateral adjustment without dismantling the pipe system.

Typical support arrangement for vertical pipework


Typical support arrangement for horizontal pipework

Push fit joint coupling

This iron coupling with fixing ears does both jointing and bracketing.


Apply a small amount of lubricant on the lip of the rubber gaskets, both ends, to ease insertion of pipe/fittings.

Push joint over the end of pipe/fitting, ensuring the central register is abutted against the spigot edge evenly.

Fix to wall using anti-corrosion coach screws or similar.

Push the second pipe or fitting into the gasket again ensuring that the spigot is abutted against the central register.

Eared joints can be fitted to most fittings within the SMU- ENSIGN 50, 70, 100 and 150 mm diameter ranges.

Bolts should be tightened until a suitable resistance is achieved.
