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.
“WT” slotted strut eliminates drilling completely for 5/8” threaded rod or fastener applications. Doing away with drilling will save time and your drill. Drilling requires setup, tools, safety precautions, labor, time and wear on your drill, whereas Unistrut WT eliminates the need for drilling entirely.

- Sized for a 5/8” threaded rod or fastener
