Blue Banger Hanger® from Simpson Strong-Tie®

The Simpson Strong-Tie Blue Banger Hanger internally-threaded inserts are cast into the underside of concrete decks after being fastened to the top of wood forms or metal decks. The company says the high-strength, easy-to-install woodform and metal-deck anchors have been tested and shown to provide outstanding performance in cracked and uncracked concrete under both static and seismic loading conditions. The Simpson Strong-Tie design, which has received the first International Building Code (IBC) report issued for a specialty cast-in-place insert, is engineered to be the only pre-pour insert to offer the patented multi-thread design that enables one size insert to handle multiple diameters of threaded rod. This gives flexibility to the installer in layout and to the designer in case the loads and threaded rod sizes are changed during construction. www.strongtie.com
