4Dimension Strut: Reimagining Traditional Strut Systems

An innovative strut option is opening doors to new installation opportunities in the field.

For decades, struts have been used as support systems to mount, brace, and connect pipes, wire, and other structural loads.

Without many design changes over the years, they’ve worked well and served their purpose.

But another strut option is opening doors to innovative installation opportunities in the field.

That’s exactly what the 4Dimension Strut lets you do. Its innovative design is unlike any other system. As a 2” by 2” square with four-sided functionality, it significantly speeds up installation and reduces project costs.

When compared to traditional strut, the 4Dimension Strut:

  • Attaches twice as many conduits in the same linear footage, doubling capacity by mounting conduit on the top and bottom
  • Maximizes space usage in above-ceiling applications that house infrastructure for systems like HVAC, electrical, plumbing, and medical gas
  • Allows trades to work side by side (a mechanical contractor could run conduit on the top while an electrical contractor runs conduit on the bottom, for example)
  • Reduces material and labor costs by requiring only half as many struts
  • Saves time by allowing pipes to be loaded on the top in-house before it’s sent out to the jobsite for additional pipes to be added in the field

This solution may also give you a competitive edge when pricing a job, allowing you to decrease strut costs by nearly half.

Virtually all straps and accessories that will work with traditional strut will also work with the 4Dimension Strut. It’s also backward compatible with many existing strut fittings and pieces. It comes in galvanized and green (paintable) options to support a variety of applications. And its price point is similar to traditional strut, too.
