  1. 1. UNISTRUT Metal Framing Lunch and Learn Presentation for NSA Architects, Engineers, Planners 12/05/2014
  2. 2. UNISTRUT Metal Framing • Unistrut Metal Framing is the 100% adjustable, 100% reusable, bolted solution for your secondary structural steel supports • Commonly used to support electrical conduit, cable trays, process piping, duct work • Unistrut is the Original Metal Framing Company • Still 100% Made in America at our plants in Harvey, IL and Wayne, MI
  3. 3. UNISTRUT •Industry Standard for Electrical and Mechanical Supports •Commonly used supports for pipes and conduit sizes from ½” to 6” •Increasingly Being Used in Pre Fabricated Service Modules in Modular Construction Designs
  4. 4. Unistrut Metal Framing System Overview
  5. 5. Unistrut Channel Profiles •Standard Channel profile is 1 5/8” by 1 5/8” •Available in deeper and shallow profiles to accommodate the load you are trying to support •Most Channel Profiles are available in 12, 14, or 16 ga.
  6. 6. Unistrut Fittings Flat Fittings 90° Angle Fittings “Z” Shaped Fittings Angular Fittings Winged Fittings “U” Shape Fittings Post Bases Cantilever Brackets Special Applications Beam Clamps Trolleys End Caps

  15. 15. Unistrut Benefits • Adjustability- The inherent properties of the Unistrut Metal Framing System allow for the support structure to be positioned or adjusted to suit any changing equipment room layouts (unlike welded steel structures). • Mechanical Connections- The Unistrut Metal Framing connections allow for installations to be done with standard hand tools thereby eliminating the need for special jobsite welding accommodations. • Adaptability- The Unistrut Metal Framing System has multiple channel profiles that enable the Unistrut Construction design team to develop a solution to meet virtually a limitless variety of projects. • Fast & Efficient- The bolt-together design of the Unistrut Metal framing System allows our experienced installation team to finish installations much faster than most welded steel structures allow. • Design/Assistance- Unistrut can offer design assistance from start to finish.
  16. 16. Roofwalks, Crossovers, Catwalks
  17. 17. Roofwalks Rooftop Walkways • United Interlock Grating • Lightweight aluminum or pre-galvanized grating sections reduce overall Roofwalk system dead load on the roofing structure compared to conventional methods (concrete pads, etc). • Provides a safe walkway for rooftop traffic. Protects the roof from foot traffic and costly repairs. • Galvanized steel & aluminum panels resist weather. • Attaches to all standing-seam roofs including metric. • Utilizes non-penetrating roof anchoring systems. • Remains visible during all types of weather (snow, heavy rain, etc)
  18. 18. Libya Roofwalk • General Contractor in Libya needed to provide a safe means of access to rooftop equipment. • Special Considerations: ▫ Located on the coast, material finish was important ▫ Aggressive Schedule ▫ Inexperienced Workforce in Libya
