RE: Structural Pipe-Flange Connections

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Nels,

I forgot to mention the additional SS pipe connectors that Julius Blum
http://www.juliusblum.com/products.html offers.  If your loads aren't too
large, they can work.  They have some very easy to install connectors
primarily intended for architectural applications.

Regards,
Harold O. Sprague
