Harvey, IL – Unistrut International is proud to introduce a new, corrosion-resistant patent pending product line called Unistrut Defender. Unistrut Defender is designed for harsh environments, providing a service life between Hot-Dip Galvanized and stainless steel systems.  Independent testing shows that Unistrut Defender is THREE times more corrosion-resistant than Hot-Dip Galvanized products. In addition, Unistrut Defender avoids the use of costly stainless steel hardware. Unistrut Defender is a great choice for harsh and corrosive environments.

“Our performance feasibility trials tested Unistrut Defender against Hot-Dip Galvanized products in a continuous salt spray chamber”, says Jake Shaw, Product Manager of Unistrut Defender.  “High performance products in the metal framing industry are typically only tested for 1,000 hours.  Unistrut Defender products were still going strong after 2,800 hours in the chamber!  By design we knew Unistrut Defender would perform well, but we were still excited to see how well it performed against Hot-Dip Galvanized products in a side-by-side test.

Unistrut Defender brings a solution to the market that has never been available to framing and support applications in harsh environments. For more information, visit
