Pipe Prop Load Factors

How Much Weight Can the Pipe Prop Hold?

We tested the Pipe Prop to see just how much weight it can handle under various conditions without buckling, cracking, or showing signs of deterioration. The variables or pipe support system load factors we included in our product testing were:

  • Product height
  • Outside temperature
  • Whether or not glue was used during assembly

Proven results show the Pipe Prop can safely hold anywhere from 2,130 lbs. to over 3,935 lbs. with glue at 140°F.

 – an outstanding feat for a product weighing only 0.5 lbs! Obviously, big innovation does come in small packages.
