Download Load Reports for Unistrut Post Bases

We just got a question about Unistrut Post Base tension loads from one of our clients and decided to share the response with our loyal Tech Talk readers.  

Two of the most popular post bases in the Unistrut catalog are P2072A and P2072A-SQ.  If you want to learn more about the differences between these fittings, we suggest checking out our recent Tech Talk article on Unistrut Post Bases.  Now let’s take a look at the load data, starting with the P2072A:

2. Testing based on 1/2"-13 channel nut & cap screw torqued to 50 ft-lbs.
3. Average safety factor = 3.7
4. Design load limited to 3,000 lb. slip load of two (2) 1/2"-13 channel nuts, SF=3
5. Deflection is the average deflection reading at 3,000 lbs.
