Gusset Plates and Stiffeners
generally support, or reinforce the connection of two major
structural steel parts, such as when bolting and/or welding
bridge beams or trusses to adjoining load bearing, bridge column supports.
Many gusset plate types are of a triangular base shape with any number of clean drilled holes for bolting to bridge and beam supports. Notice, the gusset in the picture to the lower right
is welded to the two right-angled, adjoining structures. Today,
often times, both, bolting and welding are recommended for
bridge construction plates. Years ago, riveting was a common
method for attaching these specialty plates. Special designs for
extreme load bearing gussets are rectangular in shape and welded into the corners, fitting
underneath one I-Beam while supporting another adjacent beam. Some
might refer to these as "stiffeners"
rather than gussets. Bridges and Truss Columns are typical civil engineering construction projects requiring numerous gussets and supports.

Precision Grinding stocks
ASTM A36 to 10", and we also inventory A572
Grade 50 and A572 Grade 60 from
1/2" to 6" thick. A572 Steel is specially designed for outdoor use, such as
required when building bridges and building infrastructure for
Power companies, water & sewage, Gas, and other utility
distribution facilities. Heavy, outdoor steel parts manufactured
from A572 steel include:
Column Plates, Column Bases and Foundations
Foundation Plates, Pole Bases for Power Utilities
Truss Gussets, Bridge Beams, Beam Supports
Specialty Infrastructure and
Tower Foundation Supports -
"Cell Tower Bases"
We partner with job shops and OEM manufactures to manufacture
heavy and thick steel parts.
