HSS have long been popular for low-rise construction thanks to the material’s excellent strength-to-weight ratio. But in mid- and high-rise construction, field-welded splices have limited HSS adoption. Fortunately, those days are over thanks to Shuriken™, which lets you make simple bolted splices with standard nuts and bolts.
