Blue Banger Hanger® Steel Deck Insert

Aerosmith®’s Blue Banger Hanger® Steel Deck Insert cast-in-place anchors are installed prior to pouring concrete which reduces installation and material costs and increases strength values. The parts take multiple sizes of threaded rod, have a large flanged head, and a 3” plastic sleeve to help keep threads clean. An installation tool is also available to punch a hole through the metal deck for ease of installation. The parts are also seismically qualified for use in cracked concrete. Installation is quick and easy, punch hole through metal deck – insert blue banger hanger, apply pressure to head of anchor to lock in place and pour concrete.
