All Y-Frame center drop tubes are constructed of 6" OD, 11 ga. mechanical tube which provides 35% more structural steel than 6 5/8", 14 ga. tubing used by some other manufacturers. Diagonal side supports are constructed of 2" schedule 40 structural pipe (2 3/8" OD) and intersects the 6" drop tube no more than 30" above the top of the backboard to insure maximum rigidity. The top horizontal cross member is 2" x 3", 11 ga. rectangular steel tubing.
Entire Y-Frame is welded with extra gusseting at critical connecting points on structures when the floor to attachment point ceiling heights are under 28'. Heights over 28' bolt together with ½" grade 5 hardware and have additional diagonal bracing for added integrity. Our 1" threaded adjustment hanger bolts allow perfect alignment and installation and are safer than 7/8” bolts provided by others.
Y-Frames are suspended by 3 ½" OD structural steel pipe for spans up to 16' and with 3 ½" OD and 1 ½" schedule 40 structural pipe (1 7/8" OD) welded bridge trusses on greater spans.
All steel parts including Y-Frames, hanger brackets and overhead pipes have a polyester powder coated finish available in a wide range of colors including a primer suitable for field painting.
7,000# breaking strength, ¼" diameter aircraft cables run through 2 ½" diameter solid steel pulleys to insure safe and reliable electric hoist or manual winch operation.
