Thanks for those who have provided feedback thus far - here's the progress on the Trapeze Sizing Tool.
Also, quick note: today is the last day to get the custom mousepad with the Toolkit. If you're an all-access subscriber of the Toolkit (new today or prior), be sure to fill out your information to get a free one on the dashboard. Those will be sent out starting next week.
The tool was not allowing any entry when it initially posted but that's cleaned up now.
I've updated some hanger detailing, labels, and Unistrut sizing.
What else would be helpful to incorporate here? I plan to add some flexibility on structure types, include a graphic scale, and offer options for which trapeze to show (the default is Schedule 10 pipe).
Also, for contractors - what is your preferred method of attachment and hanging for the trapeze? A washer and nut would typically be used for Unistrut and angle iron, but what about pipe as a trapeze? I'd like to detail what is realistic and preferred in the field.
As always, feel free topost comments here or shoot me an email with ideas. Thanks in advance!
