Compression Strut System
To complement our existing tensile bar systems, Daver Steels have introduced a range of adjustable compression struts.
A compression strut comprises a central tubular section with a welded taper connection at each end. The taper connection forms the shape of the compression strut and is threaded to take an end connection.
The taper connection is assembled with a threaded fork/pin end connection and a threaded lock cover. The threaded fork end connection enables the compression strut to be adjusted in length. The nominal strut adjustment length is +/- 50 mm.
The tapered lock cover and machined cone conceal the majority of the threaded bar.
The installed compression strut is fixed to the final length by use of a grub screw set into the cone.
The strut system is designed in accordance with EN1993-1-1 and EN1993 -1-8 and their respective UK National Annexes. The ultimate capacities quoted take account of self-weight bending of the strut in accordance with equation 6.10, Table NA.A1.2(B) UK National Annex to EN1990.
