Duggans Non-Continuous Rail

The Duggan Steel Non-Continuous Rail System joint is normally used when the specified column face to cladding distance is less than that possible for the standard purlin/rail joint. The joint can handle flush or recessed sheeting lines. A non-standard cleat, (either angle or tee), is welded to the column, and bolted to the rail using holes along the standard gauge lines.

  • Any modification of the selected parts will cause this joint to be updated.
  • If specific values are entered under the Parameters tab, thus overriding the default bolt positions then non standard parts may be created.
