The IronRidge rail connector is an essential part of ground-mounted installations; it connects the horizontal cross steel pipes with the XR rails. The connector is an L-bracket made of cast aluminum, while the rest of the components are steel with a hot-dip galvanized finish.
The SGA rail connector comes in two different sizes depending on the diameter of the steel pipe used to build the structure: 2 and 3 inches. The connector bracket is secured to the XR rail with flange nuts, flat washers, and lock washers, while the U-bolt grips the horizontal steel pipe with the U-bolt also included. The U-bolt comes in the size of the pipe’s diameter, either 2″ or 3″.
The pipes are not included; it is advised to source them locally. The rail connector comes with hardware and other accessories needed for proper installation.
