SEAM November Meeting: Designing with Unistrut Metal Framing System

Saving time is a recipe for success in the construction industry. The old adage “Time is money” smacks of cliché, but every successful contractor will vouch for the veracity of this statement.

“One of the greatest advantages of Unistrut Metal Framing Products is that their strut system allows you to save time compared to conventional construction products. Unistrut Metal Framing Products don’t require any welding or drilling, which allows construction professionals to complete their strut connections quickly and easily. Better yet, these parts are 100% adjustable and reusable, offering further time and money-saving benefits.

But the advantages of Unistrut Metal Framing Products go well beyond helping construction professionals save time and money. These metal strut products are designed to the highest possible standards of quality to ensure that all completed work is safe and reliable. It’s hardly surprising that Unistrut products have been relied on in everything from solar panel support to nuclear construction projects.”

SEAM will be hosting an evening seminar presented by Jake Shaw, the Director of Marketing of Unistrut Metal Framing System. Mr. Shaw is an engineer at Unistrut’s headquarters in Illinois.
Mr. Shaw’s presentation will include information about the following:

  1. General overview of Unistrut (product offering, applications, technical info, unique products)
  2. Conduit/pipe/cable tray supports (application details, products)
  3. Rooftop supports (products, applications)
  4. Seismic bracing (current offering, upcoming OPM, new products)
  5. Hilti system vs. Unistrut

In addition, Unistrut is launching an updated seismic program shortly and is building out some future products and services. Mr. Shaw would like to discuss seismic bracing as it relates to the company’s products.

Mr. Shaw will provide a Technical Resource / Quick Reference Guide as well as a Unistrut USB (pre-loaded with electronic versions of catalogs) for anyone interested.
