(nailing strips are plastic - wood available upon request)
7.5" A-Stringer
The 7½" Aluminum A-Stringer is used in combination with 6½" Beam. The A-Stringer is lighter weight than our Heavy, 4" Flanged Stringer, providing stringer class strength at a cost effective price.

The A-Stringer is easily clamped to the 6½" Beam, usually via an A-Clamp or W-Clamp.

As are all GATEWAY beams and stringers, the A-Stringer contain a 2" x 2" plastic nailer strip which is formulated to provide nail gripping properties comparable to wood, and will not become soft in hot weather, nor brittle, nor crack in extreme cold.  Plastic nailers are much more durable than wood and will withstand repeated use as plastic is apt to self-heal upon fastener removal.

As in all of our stringers and beams, the A-Stringer has the standard T-Head Bolt slot in its base for fastening other stringers, strongbacks or I-Beams with the standard easy-to-use self-locking A-Bolt.

Aluma Stringer
7.5" Heavy Stringer - 4" Base
The 7½" Heavy Stringer, 4" Flanged Base Beam is used in combination with the 6½" Beam. This Stringer Beam is one of the beefiest in the industry with an unusually high web thickness.  Its lower flange is 4" wide, allowing these to be doubled in an 8" saddle for particularly heavy jobs.

This Stringer Beam is easily clamped to 6½" Beam usually via an A-Clamp or W-Clamp.

As are all GATEWAY beams and stringers, our stringer products contain a 2" x 2" plastic nailer strip which is formulated to provide nail gripping properties comparable to wood, and will not become soft in hot weather, nor brittle, nor crack in extreme cold.  Plastic nailers are much more durable than wood and will withstand repeated use as plastic is apt to self-heal upon fastener removal.

As in all of our stringers and beams, this product has the standard T-Head Bolt slot in it's base for fastening other stringers, strongbacks or I-Beams with the standard easy-to-use self-locking A-Bolt.

Hi-Lite Stringer
7.25" HL Stringer
The 7¼ " Hi-Lite Style Double Ended Stringer is used where there is no need for a nailing strip and where the strength of a stringer is required.  Both ends of this product are capable of being affixed to other shoring members via the standard T-Head Bolt available in the A-Bolt Assembly and both A-Clamps and W-Clamps.

Like the HL Beam, it also is designed with curls at the ends of all flanges to ensure proper gripping of clamps.  The curls also act to provide a stronger flange edge, less apt to be damaged in use and thus providing greater longevity in the field.

7.5" A-Stringer - 4" Base
The 7½" Aluminum A-Stringer is used in combination with 6½" Beam. The A-Stringer is lighter weight than our Heavy, 4" Flanged Stringer, providing stringer class strength at a cost effective price.

The beauty of this engineered profile is that it is not simply an A-Stringer clone where 1" of bottom flange (and strength) is missing.  The aluminum removed from the bottom flange width has been engineered back into the profile so that this shape CONFORMS to the industry standard, 7.5" A-Stringer load chart.  This product thus weighs the same as the standard A-Stringer and is priced similarly.

And too, for the sake of positive A-Clamping, the bottom flange tips have been created to mate perfectly with the standard A-Clamp.  These have the side benefit of providing a particularly strong and damage resistant flange.

The A-Stringer is easily clamped to the 6½" Beam, usually via an A-Clamp or W-Clamp.

As are all GATEWAY beams and stringers, the A-Stringer contain a 2" x 2" plastic nailer strip which is formulated to provide nail gripping properties comparable to wood, and will not become soft in hot weather, nor brittle, nor crack in extreme cold.  Plastic nailers are much more durable than wood and will withstand repeated use as plastic is apt to self-heal upon fastener removal.

As in all of our stringers and beams, the A-Stringer has the standard T-Head Bolt slot in its base for fastening other stringers, strongbacks or I-Beams with the standard easy-to-use self-locking A-Bolt.
