Friction Clip Connections, are they still accepted by ASCE 7? Unistut

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I wrote this e-mail to Mr. Anwar Yusuf about the use of friction clips
about a month ago. e-mail: Anwar Yusuf <info(--nospam--at)>.  His SE seals
are on every page of the approved connection design.

Since Mr. Yousuf has not respond to my question, could some of you on
the list give me some guidelines please?  Simply speaking, are the use
of friction clips not acceptable to ASCE 7 anymore?

Mr. Yusuf

I read your wire rope for brace on the web.  It is very nice.

Your are the expert on the code requirements in this area.  Can you
tell me that are the friction clip connections in the UNISTRUT;
SUPERSTRUT; POWERSTRUT ... are they still accepted in the 2007
California Building Code (which uses  the ASCE 7)?
