Re: Sag-rod effectiveness?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Sag rods are designed only for tension. As long as the end connections and the rod's cross section area can sustain the load in them, they should be acceptable.

Dear all,
For the cold formed purlins, I have seen in some projects that they have used sag-rods which are prepared from slit coil waste-1.5mm thick and bent to get a circular shape of 15-16mm dia, the joint being open say 2-3mm . The ends of these sag ?rods have the clips (as in umbrella) to lock these rods in purlins. How are these sag-rods compared to normal rods, angles etc?.  Are they really effective? Any views will be highly appreciated.
