SK3000 pallet racks are constructed of hot-rolled structural channel columns with full horizontal and diagonal bracing
, offering greater frame strength, durability and cross-sectional areas than conventional selective racking, according to Wharry.
Compared to typical racking, the pallet rack is constructed of hot-rolled structural channel column with full horizontal and diagonal bracing
. All Grade-5 hardware provides greater shear strength, and a heavy 7-gauge, wrap-around connector plate ensures a square and plumb installation with a tighter connection and greater moment resistance.
The vertical tension hangers, the diagonal bracing
under the bridge and the bottom chords are all constructed from steel.

On the exterior, metal planters with diagonal bracing
and steelbean framing pay homage to the local oil rigs off in the distance.
The mentioned frame with a single diagonal bracing

In general, the MSD can be installed in the wall using diagonal bracing
. Combinations of slim dampers make it possible to control seismic performance properly with smaller installation spaces.
A major disadvantage of diagonal bracing
(conventional bracing) is that the diagonal connections are expensive to fabricate and erect, uplift in columns and low ductility (Stafford Smith, Coull 1991).
In this study, diagonal bracing
configuration has been selected since it is the most suitable bracing configuration to be applied for strengthening the GLD building.
The diagonal bracing
members of braced frames are often hollow structural sections because of their compression load efficiency and aesthetic appearance.
I tied the diagonal bracing
into the gussets and joists to add even more stability to the structure.
