Have you ever believed the myth that HSS is too expensive without verifying the facts? It’s time to set the record straight. Join our upcoming webinar to uncover the truth about HSS costs and benefits. In this informative session, we’ll explore how HSS can help design and fabrication professionals create efficient structures. You’ll learn how to leverage the unique capabilities of HSS to make it a valuable investment, saving time and money at every stage of production, design, and fabrication

Learning Objectives

  • Learn about the costs of HSS members in comparison to other sections of similar capacities
