First Due Fabrication LLC

Check out what First Due Fabrication LLC created to get 8 struts in a compartment that’s really only wide enough for 4.  First Due Fabrication LLC double stacked the struts 2 rows deep using polytechamerica mounts.  The outer row swing down out of the way allowing access to the inner set.

Below is are  Poly-Tech America, LLC strut mounts and polyboxes on Cheshire Connecticut’s Rescue 1.
