Unistrut is a complete framing system that consists of channel, fittings, channel nuts, and specialty items like trolleys and closure strips.
With so many choices, it is easy to get overwhelmed, so this edition of Tech Talk is dedicated to flat plate fittings for 1-5/8” strut.
Whether you need a basic, flat fitting like the P1062 or larger fittings with multiple holes, the Unistrut catalog contains an entire lineup of items that will help make short work of your next project. Each of the pages on our website dedicated to Unistrut flat plate fittings contains detailed product information on finishes, materials, sizes, and ordering information. You’ll also find a submittal PDF for each part number.
Below, are some quick additional pointers on 1-5/8″ compatible flat plate fittings for handy reference:
Fittings, unless noted, are made from hot-rolled, pickled and oiled steel plates, bar, strip or coil, and conform to one or more of the following specifications: ASTM specifications A575, A576, A635, A1011 SS GR 33, A1011 HSLAS GR 45 or A36. All fittings meet or exceed physical properties of ASTM A1011 GR 33. The pickling of the steel produces a smooth surface free from scale. Many fittings are also available in stainless steel, aluminum and fiberglass.
All parts drawings in the catalog and on our website illustrate only one application of each fitting. In most cases many other applications are possible. The channels shown in the illustrations are P1000, 15⁄8″ square, except where noted otherwise. All 9⁄16″ diameter holes use 1⁄2″ x 15⁄16″ hex head cap screws and 1⁄2″ nuts – P1010, P3010, P4010 or P5510 – depending on the channel used. Nuts and bolts are not included with the fitting and must be ordered separately.
Imperial dimensions illustrated in the catalog and on the web site are in inches, and metric dimensions are shown in parenthesis. Unless noted, all metric dimensions are in millimeters and rounded to one decimal place
Design load data, where shown, is based on the ultimate strength of the connection with a safety factor of 2.5, unless otherwise noted.
