IEP Thomas & Betts (T&B) Kindorf® Channel
The Kindorf® Channel System is designed so that the maximum number of support and framing applications can be constructed with a minimum amount of labor and pieces.
Uniqueness in Design
The 11⁄2″ dimension in the channel, hole spacing and fittings means all parts fit together, no matter where they’re used, or at what angle. This modular dimension provides maximum flexibility in field applications, and results in saving inventory and labor dollars. The IEP Thomas & Betts (T&B) Kindorf® channel exclusive Galv-Krom® finish provides superior corrosion protection for all threaded components, channel and fittings. Through a
two-part process, the coating is applied on all finished parts after fabrication — there is no exposed surface where corrosion can start.
Even though the Kindorf® channel is slightly smaller in dimensions, it supports the same weight as 15⁄8″ channel.
Compatibility with 15⁄8″ Strut
The IEP Thomas & Betts (T&B) Kindorf® System is designed so that most accessories are compatible with 15⁄8″ strut. Conduit and pipe straps will work equally well with 15⁄8″ and 11⁄2″ strut. In addition, 98% of 15⁄8″ accessories are interchangeable with IEP Thomas & Betts (T&B) Kindorf® channel. Angle fittings can adapt easily to the open side of any 15⁄8″ strut and the unique parallelogram nuts provide secure attachment to both types of strut.
Full Line of Support Products
The IEP Thomas & Betts (T&B) Kindorf® channel system’s many advantages are extended into a broad product offering including beam clamps, concrete inserts, lighting supports, cable cleats and a variety of threaded components. This system is available in the largest selection of finishes and materials, including green coated, aluminum, stainless steel and non-metallic. This, combined with a nationwide network of distributors and service centers, makes the Kindorf® system a single source for supported metal-framing needs.
Why IEP Thomas & Betts (T&B) Kindorf® 11⁄2″ Channel Saves You Labor Dollars
IEP Thomas & Betts (T&B) Kindorf® Channel’s 11⁄2″ is Much More than a Cross-Section Dimension The 11⁄2″ with IEP Thomas & Betts (T&B) Kindorf® channel is truly a modular dimension. The channel height, width and prepunched hole spacings are all 11⁄2″. The angle fittings and the bolt holes in the angle fittings are all 11⁄2″ dimensions. Scribe marks are located at 11⁄2″ intervals to mark the midpoint between holes and every 6″ on the side for easy measurement.
Jobsite adaptability and structural integrity are the key factors in making strut channel an economical solution to metal framing needs. IEP Thomas & Betts (T&B) Kindorf® channel, with its 11⁄2″ modular dimensions, enables the installer to do more work with fewer pieces and less labor dollars. Here’s What the Modular Dimension Can Do for You Using a 15⁄8″ channel with hole spacings on 17⁄8″ centers requires numerous fittings and, in many cases, limits the joint fastening to the open side of the channel. Field drilling and welding, plus the need for extra fittings, become the rule rather than the exception. With constant 11⁄2″ dimensions throughout the system, many structural joints can be made with a minimum of fittings.
Consider the following:
1. The Entire Section Can be Used.
You are not limited to using only the open-slot side because holes line up on channel and fittings. Using the scribe marks ensures the fittings will work and a straight cut is made.
2. Considerable Field Drilling and Welding Eliminated.
The holes are already there and they are usable. Back-to-back, side-to-back, side-to-side — all combinations that can be made using B-995 Kindorf® channel.
3. Field Cutting and Layout Made Simple.
8 scribe marks = 1 ft. Simply count the marks and cut. Position of holes ensures balanced support for trapezes on every piece, thus keeping waste to an absolute minimum.
4. Modular Fittings Fasten to Bolt Side or Slot Side —Unique Stud Nut.
IEP Thomas & Betts (T&B) Kindorf® framing fittings are engineered for versatile use — to meet the greatest number of framing combinations with maximum rigidity and security. Fittings may be fastened to the channel on either the bolt-hole side or the slot side. The matching 11⁄2″ dimensions of channel bolt holes and fitting bolt holes provide a fast alignment and quick bolting. Fastening on the slot side provides infinite placement of the nut to match bolting requirements. Either way results in simple “building block” erection and permits multiple application of fittings. With the B-911SN Stud Nut, blind fastening of angles and fixtures is eliminated.
Why IEP Thomas & Betts (T&B) Kindorf® 11⁄2″ Channel Saves You Inventory Dollars
Fewer Pieces Do More Work. By making equal use of the back of the channel, the sides of the channel (B-995 see page C-13) and the open slot, your options are increased. Combine this with three simple fittings that are 11⁄2″ wide and have 11⁄2″ hole layout, and you have the simplest and most versatile channel system on the market today. By stocking a single-channel system and only three angle fittings, a multitude of jobs can be done. With fewer pieces doing more work, ordering efficiency is increased and investment dollars are decreased. Any way you look at it — Kindorf® strut can save you money.
