Struts have been used for many years as mounting, bracing, and connecting systems for tubes, wires, and other structural loads. They have served well and fulfilled their job over the years without undergoing significant design changes. However, a new strut design- Hanging Strut, is presenting the market with cutting-edge installation opportunities. Its unique design sets it apart from all other frameworks. It considerably speeds up installation and lowers project expenses with its 2″ by 2″ square with four-sided functionality.
About Strut Hangers
Threaded fasteners can be hung from various structural parts using strut hangers. Threaded fasteners can be hung using strut channels, beam clamps, pipe clamps, and clevis hangers. These struts do not require any welding or drilling. These solutions are flexible, reusable, user-friendly, and reliable, making them the ideal choice for a wide range of applications and needs. Other uses for strut hangers include ceiling grids, storage racks, tool and equipment holding, pipe support, and many more. The key advantage is their versatility, which lets installers design a variety of structures with just one system.
Benefits Of Using Strut Hangers
- By mounting conduits on the top and bottom, installers can attach twice as many conduits in the same linear space and increase capacity.
- It maximizes the use of space in applications that are above ceilings and contains infrastructure for systems, including HVAC, electrical, plumbing, and medical gas.
- It enables the coordination of several trades. For instance, an electrical contractor can run a conduit on the bottom while a mechanical contractor runs a conduit on top.
- Using half as many struts reduces the need for labor and material costs.
- Using this Strut saves time by allowing pipes to be stacked on the top internally before it is shipped to the worksite for extra pipes to be placed in the field.
Threaded Rod Hanging Connection Below Unistrut Channel
The threaded rod is not affixed to the channel directly while using the hanging connection method. The threaded rod is attached to the Unistrut u bracket, which is fixed to the underside of the channel using a P1047 or P1737. The rod is hung beneath the channel’s bottom.
U bracket, two flat washers, and two hex nuts are required for the hanging technique, as well as the hardware to attach it to the Unistrut channel (channel nuts, spring nuts, and hex head cap screws).
Threaded Rod Angled Hanging Connection Below Unistrut Channel
The angled hanging connection technique is used when the channel is not perpendicular to the ground. It is very similar to the Hanging Strut since it allows the rod to hang vertically regardless of the angle at which the channel is. This is easily and cost-effectively done by using a pair of 90-degree brackets.
The second L bracket is attached to the first using a hex bolt and hex nut, and the threaded rod is put through the second L bracket’s remaining hole and locked in place with a hex nut on either side of the hole using a channel nut and hex bolt to attach one of the ninety-degree angle brackets to the bottom of the Unistrut channel.
The Hanging Strut is compatible with almost all straps and accessories that are compatible with standard struts. It also works with many current strut fittings and parts. It supports a variety of applications and is available in galvanized options. The price is comparable to that of the standard Strut.
