ABB Installation Products Inc., formerly Thomas & Betts, is now offering Superstrut® punched with half-slot holes large enough to accommodate 5/8-inch threaded rod. The new configuration offers a time savings to installers who have been drilling holes in solid strut on site to accommodate larger rods.
The new 12-gauge steel strut is available in 10- and 20-foot lengths with GoldGalv®, SilverGalv® or pre-galvanized finishes. Each half-slot hole, spaced 2 inches apart from center to center, is 1-1/16 inches wide and 1-1/8 inches long to accept all sizes of threaded rod up to 5/8 inches in diameter.
“We pride ourselves on finding ways to save our customers time and money,’’ said Mark Meyer, ABB global product manager for metal framing. “This is a simple innovation that can spare installers from having to do lots of onsite drilling work.”
ABB operates in more than 100 countries with about 147,000 employees. For more information, please visit: www.abb.com.
