In all design applications using strut systems and accessories, proper engineering design practices should be applied and load limits observed. Struts are often installed to serve either as beams or columns in structural applications. Structural members installed in a horizontal attitude and subject to vertical and/or horizontal loads are known as beams. The method by which a beam is mounted and loaded affects the load-carrying capability of the beam. Structural members installed in a vertical attitude and subject to vertical loads are known as columns. The loads on a column have the effect of compressing the column and attempting to deflect the column laterally. As with beams, the method by which a column is mounted and loaded affects the load-carrying capability of the column.
This type of coating is suitable for extended exposure in dry or mildly corrosive atmospheres but not generally recommended for use outdoors in industrial environments.
A water borne epoxy paint applied by cathodic electro disposition. The nine-step process delivers a corrosion - resistant bonding of coating to material. Dura-Green effectively, resists scratching and peeling.
Because of its corrosion resistance, stainless steel is recommended for applications where corrosion is a problem.
