3 Strategies for Dealing With Rising Strut Costs

Forecast annual usage requirements

Purchasing material based on monthly, quarterly, or annual usage requirements secures fixed costs.

With strut and fittings prices rising monthly due to steel shortages, holding more material insulates your company from the volatility in the metals market.   The increased carrying costs associated with more inventory will be more than likely offset by fewer spot buys in today’s turbulent market.

COVID-19 and Supply Chain Disruptions: Why Strut Prices Keep Going Up

Whether you regularly purchase Unistrut and other steel products, or source on a spot basis, you’ve seen soaring steel costs since January.  The old cycle of modest, annual mill pricing adjustments has given way to monthly price increases announcements brought on by supply chain disruptions due to COVID-19.  Unistrut (and many of our competitors) has just announced a 6th price increase, effective June 1st, 2021. 

Slotted Unistrut Channel for 5/8” Threaded Rod

When attaching a 5/8” threaded rod to slotted strut like P1000T, you have to drill at every attachment point since the 9/16” slots are not large enough to accommodate 5/8” threaded rod. This process needs to be repeated on every piece of strut and often in awkward places, resulting in longer project installations. With the larger slots found on P1000WT you can work smarter, not harder. Often called wide t-slot by folks in the trades, P1000WT is ideal for data centers and heavy duty supports as well as a number of other applications.
