Threaded Rod with Unistrut


Threaded Rod with Unistrut
1. First, you will need to attach the Unistrut to the bottom of your trusses.
a. Unistrut should be positioned so that the side that is open (not one of the sides with holes) is facing into the enclosed area. The three sides with the holes should be facing up against the truss, down toward the ground, and outside of the enclosed space.

2. To attach the Unistrut to your trusses, use the bolt, washer, and nut sets labeled “S2TR”. You should use 1 each “S2TR” set per truss.
a. The bolt will thread through the space between the bars in your truss and then down through the Unistrut.

b. You should have 1 each fender washer on top of the strut, and 1 each on the bottom of the strut.

c. Secure the bolt and fender washers with the lock washer and nut provided.

3. Unistrut should run in one continuous length. To secure one Unistrut to the next, use the flat plate fittings and the bolts with square washers provided.
a. These plates and bolts should be attached to the unistrut on the side of the strut that is open (facing into the enclosed space).

4. Once the Unistrut is up, you can attach the threaded rods to it.
5. The threaded rods are to be attached to the Unistrut by sliding the rods into the strut and out the other side of it.
a. You should use 1 each flat washer, lock washer, and hex nut, labeled “TROD2S”, on each side of the Unistrut (one set on top, the other on the bottom).
