6.5" Aluma-Style Beams/Joists, 7.5" Aluminum Stringers/Strongbacks
All GATEWAY products conform to the Aluminum Association's 6061 alloy specification, T6 tempered. This alloy is specifically used for structural applications requiring a high strength to weight ratio. 6061 has good corrosion resistance and strength similar to A36 steel and has been the standard for aluminum beam shoring.
Each and every production lot of GATEWAY aluminum undergoes inspection, chemical and mechanical testing with all data on file for perusal. Chemistry is analyzed with the latest ARL spectrometer techniques and each lot is tested for tensile strength, yield and elongation (see adjacent sample report).
All internal manufacturing processes conform to the ASTM B221 specification with full lot traceability. With the proper chemistry, mechanical strength and a variety of dimensional and regular fitness-for-use testing, each lot is certified for shipment.
Unlike aluminum mill extruders who will only guarantee the production of an aluminum profile with no understanding of our industry nor our application, GATEWAY tests and assures that its products conform to published load charts and to the structural beam property indices.
GATEWAY's Products Are Manufactured For the Concrete Forming And Shoring Industry AND ALL Products Are Certified For Fitness For Use.
