These 26′-9″ long custom designed sway struts with ball joints were supplied for a power generating facility. There were 4 total assemblies that included 4″ diameter schedule 80 pipe with one ball joint and one extension piece on each end measuring 3″ in diameter and 6″ long. The sway struts, designed to support a load of 29,000 lb., will be used in the facility to allow movement between two structures along a parallel plane.
