The steel industry continues to experience unprecedented cost increases due to supply limitations which began in late 2020 and has continued through this first quarter of 2021.Because of these cost increases we find it necessary to issue a price increase for Unistrut Metal Framing. During this time Atkore Unistrut issued price increases in November of last year, January 2021 and again in March of this year. With inventory adjustments we have been able to hold off price increases throughout the last several months but now find it necessary to issue a price increase effective 3/30/21. Our last price increase was in February 2020.
We endeavor to continue bringing quality products and services that provide value in support of our customers’ Unistrut Metal Framing needs. We thank everyone for their continued business.

A Unistrutengineer spotted a structural steel support structure hanging from the ceiling in an unfinished room during a site visit. Since Unistrut does a large number of support structures each year, the engineer was curious why we weren’t invited to bid this job too. Before our guy could ask, his escort chimed in, saying “I know what you are thinking—this should have been made from Unistrut.” The origins of the support structure and its limitations are instructive, so we decided to share the story.
In this project,the structural engineer designed an overhead support system for a folding partition. Because the engineer was well-versed in welded supports, he specified structural c-channel to create a flat surface from which to hang the partition.
