Contact ClarkDietrich Technical Service to determine the distance of the side struts above the wall plate. The frame products of 33mil and 43mil are made with 33ksi steel. ClarkDietrich screws are manufactured in a variety of flange widths to suit different applications. In this webinar, we will help you explain the language of structural engineers and break down possible problems that you need to think about in advance. All of this can better prepare you to bid on projects, ultimately saving you time and money.
Assembling the frame takes minutes and is as easy as inserting connectors into the T-slot and squeezing, all with simple hand tools. The joints are strong but not durable, so no welding is required. Connect the materials anywhere, anytime and save the huge building disaster for someone else. Workstations and tables can be designed at custom heights optimized for employee comfort. The aluminum structure frame does not require welding and can be fixed in various ways, so a structure can be fully or partially pre-assembled and delivered to your location.
You should also measure the position of the wall from the first step to take into account the entire opening of the wall. The upper rail of the frame should be installed parallel to the lower track. The easiest way to do this is to use a screw that Extruded Aluminum Framing fits the plumb line for top track positioning. Avoid last-minute shopping trips by having all your materials ready in advance. Have put together the necessary tools for this DIY project before you start, you will save time and frustration.
If you do not like the appearance of screw heads, you can install two layers of 2×4 plates instead of a steel rail. With 3 inches of wood under the rail, you can nail the entire basic ornament like a wooden frame wall. On the concrete, be sure to use treated wood for the floor slab. The upper plates, which run parallel to the beams, often need to be attached to braces. You could use wood, but Joe prefers to use scrap metal from the track instead.
Attach steel rails to concrete with 1-1/4-inch hexagonal head concrete screws. Place the rail position, hit the chalk lines and drill a hole through the metal and into the concrete along the entire length of the screw. Use a hammer drill equipped with a carbide-tipped masonry drill.
