FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Is the Interjoint technology suitable to build inclined roofs?
YES. We have designed the Bracket X which is inclined at 9.5 degrees for sloped roofs and is fully compatible with the Interjoint terminals.
Is there Interjoint connectors for steel joists?
NOT YET. For the moment we are selling the Interjoint connectors for framing corners (columns and main beams). However, the development of new products is a key activity at the company, so we are already working with Interjoint connectors for joists including the 1"x2" hollow square tube.
What are the specs of the steel tubes that are compatible with the Interjoint connectors?
The version that is listed on sale requires galvanized steel tubes 3"x3" (hollow square tubes), gauge 16 or gauge 14.
Is it possible to disconnect the Interjoint connectors once they are interlocked?
The Interjoint connectors have been designed to lock the column terminals with the beam brackets so they don't get out. However, they can be uninstalled using special tools.
What kind of structures can be built with the Interjoint connectors?
The Interjoint technology was designed for the assembly of lightweight steel framing, specifically galvanized steelwork. The technology is mainly suitable to assemble patio and terrace structures and pergolas. We mostly recommend its use for temporary steel structures.
Is the Interjoint technology suitable for modular construction?
The Interjoint concept is originally based on the benefits obtained from the lean construction, standardization, and modularity. These connectors are more than ideal to build modular steel frames and assemble them on site.
Does Zero Damage LLC deliver the product?
YES. Presently, we are delivering our products in Puerto Rico. We are scaling our business to start delivering in Florida and Texas soon.
What is included with the construction kits?
The kits we sell include all the components of the construction system necessary to build the structure as shown. However, some components availability such as galvalume, sunscreens and glass are subjected to our suppliers stock. Normally, we sell all the galvanized steel components and Interjoint connectors.
Does Zero Damage LLC has a showroom or physical store?
NOT YET. All our products in stock are shown in our website. Moreover, you can follow our social network on facebook and twitter for photos and videos of built structures.
Do the Interjoint connectors withstand earthquakes and wind loads?
Though this technology has been engineered for the assembly of seismic-resistant steel moment frames, the technology is still going through the certification process. Hence, we do not recommend to use the Interjoint connectors to build permanent structures that would be exposed to earthquake forces or major wind load.
