Benefits of Unistrut Defender, an outdoor application


Stainless steel has dominated the metal framing industry for the better part of the 20th century. However, some industrial sites require a more sustainable long-term solution. Fortunately, Unistrut Metal Framing was developed as an alternative to Hot-Dip Galvanized metals and in many cases provides a much longer service life. For example, rural sites that utilized the Unistrut Defender exceeded 100 years before reaching 5% rust. This may be due to the fact Unistrut metal strut is able to endure harsher longitudinal compression than stainless steel. Perhaps the most impressive results were found in the lack of corrosion at tropical marine sites. Sites built with Hot-Dip Galvanized products experienced 5% corrosion in just 30 years, whereas sites that utilize Unistrut Defender exceed 80 years before reaching the same corrosion rate. Unistrut is now an alternative to expensive stainless steel that can save you more and more as the years go by.

There are many strut options as well, so you will not be limited with what you can do. We hope you see the benefits of utilizing this new metal framing product for all of your outdoor metal installation. Perhaps you are looking for metal framing here in Ohio.
