supporting PVC pipe

I will have 10-foot runs of 3" and 1.5" PVC in a 2x8 joist cavity that I think should be supported. What's the right way to support it? I've read that steel hanger straps (as shown below) may not be good (or allowed) for plastic pipe.

Those do look pretty nice. But I'm not clear how I would use those in my 2x8 cavity. Seems like I need something that will attach to the side of the 2x8.

You put a piece of wood as a bracket between the joists..
