The HJ-2 is a black metal joint set that allows you to create a three-pipe intersection or a corner. This joint set will probably be used for most of your structure's external corners and structural separations on two perpendicular sides. Other applications of the HJ-2 include the creation of more complex and ergonomic handles, the creation of V-shape racking support or a V-shape roof. It is often associated with the AI-CORNER accessory when positioning a surface on external sides.
This joint set is designed with 10 striations for a better grip on the plastic coating of the 28 mm pipes. It also includes 8 additional pre-drilled reinforcement holes to ensure extra strength to your structure. By adding a self-drilling screw F-A85/8, you will solidify the connector joints positioned on a corner where there is a higher risk of impact.
See the installation steps tab to view how to assemble this connector.
Antistatic Version (ESD):
An electric conductivity version if offered if you wish to build antistatic structures: HJ-2NP

2- Take a connector H-3 and fix it in the desired location on the P1 pipe.
3- Take a connector H-2 and position it to form the inner corner of the HJ- 2.
4-Take two M6-25B bolts and two M6-N nuts and insert them into the corresponding openings. Make sure to put the bolts on the more accessible side.
5- Tighten the M6-25B bolts and nuts M6-N together a few threads , but no more.
6- Insert the P2 and P3 pipes within the HJ-2 between the first and second guides as shown in the plan .
7- Tighten completely the M6-25B bolts and M6-N nuts together until the HJ-2 attached firmly to the three pipes . A force of 9.8 Nm is recommended for this step.
