DS Pipe and Steel Supply


Struts are typically made from steel, stainless steel, or other high-strength materials to withstand the loads and environmental conditions they are exposed to. The design and installation of struts must comply with relevant industry standards and codes to ensure the safety and reliability of the piping system.

Struts help to stabilize and reinforce piping systems, ensuring they remain stable, safe, and properly aligned. They often provide vertical and horizontal support to pipes and maintain their alignment. Struts also help prevent sagging or bending of pipes due to their weight or the weight of the fluid they transport. They can be adjustable to accommodate changes in pipe elevation and ensure that pipes do not shift or sway due to wind, vibrations, or thermal expansion and contraction. In pipe hanger systems, struts provide the structural framework for attaching pipe hangers and other support components.

Piping systems need to accommodate thermal expansion and contraction. Struts can be designed to allow for controlled movement while still providing support and stability. These essential components are also employed to enhance the overall structural integrity of piping systems, especially in situations where the pipes are exposed to external forces or loads. Depending on the specific requirements of a piping system, struts can be customized in terms of size, material, and design to meet the structural and support needs of the project. The most important characteristic of their strength is the material from which they are made. Most struts are made from stainless steel due to their protection against corrosion. Stainless steel struts are made from a long sheet of steel and finished with zinc, epoxy, powder coating, or paint.
