Kansas City, Missouri (PRWEB) February 13, 2013
Kansas City based rough plumbing manufacturer, Sioux Chief, announced the launch of the Power Bar Mini Strut, a heavy duty, galvanized steel, single length strut bracket used for trapeze installations of copper, PEX, CPVC, gas and other types of piping used for water supply lines, DWV pipe, medical gas, condensate lines and flexible gas lines.
Power Bar Mini Strut (PBMS), which is pre-cut to 15 inch and 26 inch lengths, is the plumbing tradesman’s economical alternative to cutting ten foot lengths of strut, a significant labor saver. PBMS also eliminates short strut remnants which have to be scrapped and allows significant loads of short brackets to be carried up ladders as needed on job sites. Specification details.
PBMS is produced with pre-drilled holes to be used with most common three-eighths inch threaded rod strut applications and is available with preloaded Touchdown clamps that are designed to support a range of tube and pipe sizes.
Sioux Chief’s original Light Duty Power Bar Mini Strut has a 70 pound safe working load when a center load is applied to the top of the bracket. The launch of the product, four years ago, sparked interest within the plumbing industry for a heavy duty model.
PBMS is made from 16 gauge, hot-dipped, pre-galvanized steel and has a load rating of 250 pounds for the 15 inch bracket and a safe working load of 100 pounds for the 26 inch bracket.
“Mechanical contractors are very familiar with the time-consuming process of cutting small 10 inch to 14 inch pieces of channel strut for overhead pipe runs,” said Sioux Chief product group developer, Carol Flanagan. “Couple the labor time with having to buy and stock multiple styles and sizes of strut clamps and the costs add up.”
“We created Power Bar Mini Strut so plumbing tradesmen could eliminate buying and stocking multiple, size-specific strut clamps and manage jobsite materials more effectively,” Flanagan said. “The Power Bar Mini Strut is made of high grade material which resists corrosion and rust and can be ordered with accessories at no charge in our Try Me packs.”
Pre-loaded Touchdown clamps support tube and pipe ranging from one-fourth inch - 1 inch CTS and one-eighth inch - 1 inch Schedule 40 (plastic or steel) and are UPC IAPMO listed. Standard Touchdown clamps are made from virgin Nylon 6/6 resin providing strength and durability. Plenum SafeTM Touchdown clamps are also available and comply with ASTM E84.
Sioux Chief products are sold through wholesale plumbing distributors nationwide.
