ERISTRUT(TM) Now Available In A Precut Length To Quickly Span Bar Joists

Less Handling, Measuring and Waste FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - SOLON, Ohio, May 16, 2002 - ERISTRUT half slot channel (12 gage 1-5/8" or 13/16") from ERICO® is now available in a precut length to span bar joists. The BJ68 Bar Joist Strut comes in an easy to handle 6' 8" length to eliminate saws, measuring and scrap! This pre-cut length is available "off the shelf" in green powder coat, pre-galvanized and yellow dichromate. Check out the complete line of ERISTRUT channel framing. It is available in every strut style for almost every application, including half slot, full slot, punched, back-to-back and knockout. ERICO offers strut in several finishes, including green powder coated, pre-galvanized, hot dip galvanized, stainless steel, aluminum and plain. And, to make installations even easier, use CADDY® prefabricated strut/beam clamps. The 200RS and the STCB6 secure strut or threaded rod to beam without drilling. Strut to beam flanges up to 3/4" thickness for 1 5/8" deep strut (up to 1 5/8" flange thickness for 13/16" deep strut for STCB6 only). They are more versatile than window brackets or standard beam clamps because they permit strut channel to be mounted in any direction. No loose parts make installation easy and cost effective.
