Overview of Unistrut Metal Framing Channels and Fittings

The Unistrut Metal Framing System is a unique construction tool that has been used by construction professionals for a wide range of applications. The fittings and channels of this system don’t just allow you to complete your work more quickly; they also serve as a reliable and effective construction solution. Here’s a brief look at how channels and fittings work together in the Unistrut Metal Framing System.

The process starts by threading a hex-head bolt into a spring nut on the channel. The tapered grooves of the nut and the channel edges work together to ensure that the connection is properly aligned. Once the bolt has been inserted, the nut is tightened, creating a powerful grip that will keep the bolt locked into the channel. This allows you to then bolt additional channel sections to the fitting by repeating the same process, without the need to drill or weld. Since Unistrut metal framing channels are continuously slotted, the placement of the spring nut and bolt can be easily adjusted.

By providing an easily-adjustable strut that doesn’t need to be welded or drilled, Unistrut Metal Framing Products allow construction professionals to complete their tasks easily and effectively, getting better results than ever before.
