Warranty & Finish

Metal framing components carry no specific warranty. Finish options include red iron (red oxide) and galvanized. Red iron is the more common finish and typically available in more sizes and gauges.

Purpose & Use

Eave Struts are secondary steel framing members used at eaves and high side peaks. Options include single slope up, single slope down, double slope up, or double slope down. Slopes are available from 0.25:12 to 4:12.

The shape of Eave Struts does not allow end lapping – they are butted together. Fastening is most commonly using bolts, though welding may be applicable in some construction methods.
