New Superstrut? channels are punched on three sides for improved utility

New Superstrut? channels are punched on three sides for improved utility

Configuration allows metal framing installers to make side-to-side connections and attach side-mounted accessories

ABB Installation Products Inc., formerly Thomas & Betts, is now offering Superstrut? metal framing with half-slot holes punched on three sides for added convenience.

The new configuration will allow installers to make side-to-side strut connections or attach various side-mounted accessories to all sides of the strut without performing custom drilling. The pre-galvanized 12-gauge steel strut is available in 10- or 20-foot lengths. Holes are drilled every two inches, center to center, and are 9/16 inches wide.

“The new three-sided configuration adds a great deal of flexibility to the ways installers can use Superstrut channel,’’ said Mark Meyer, ABB  global product manager for metal framing. “We think it will be a valuable addition to our product offering, particularly for challenging installations that require more complex designs.”
