For mechanical contractors that specialize in fabricating and installing sophisticated medical gas and process piping systems, hospital projects pose a number of unique challenges. Construction sites often have limited material storage space, timelines can be tight and complex plumbing and electrical systems can make it challenging to fit all needed components into a wall or ceiling space.
Dynamic Systems, Inc., an Austin-based mechanical contractor, finds that HOLDRITE’s engineered secondary pipe support and alignment bracket systems make a significant difference in their ability to efficiently meet these challenges. HOLDRITE products help them reduce costs and increase storage space – a win/win for Dynamic Systems and its clients.
Eliminating the Hassle of Making Trapezes
Before they discovered the HOLDRITE® EZ-Strut™ telescoping galvanized trapezes, Dynamic Systems made their trapezes out of strut. Strut typically comes in 20-foot lengths, and takes many hours to cut down to the one- to four-foot lengths that are actually needed.
“When we’re working on a hospital project with multiple floors,” explains Dynamic Systems Project Superintendent Denny Gosser, “we really don’t want to bring in 20-foot lengths of anything. There’s just no room for it. With HOLDRITE EZ-Strut we get an easy telescoping trapeze that comes pre-manufactured in a box of 25 brackets. Two models provide telescoping options from 12 inches to 40 inches. It’s easy to store these types of products in a building that’s already having problems with over-storage of material during the construction process.”
