CANFIELD, Ohio (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Owner Ron Cianciola purchased Socket Systems, founded 1983, in November, 2007. Socket Systems (, manufactures a steel joinery system called Lumber Link. This 3/16-inch steel "socket," joins 6-inch x 6-inch rough-cut timbers or wood members, to create a clear span building frame. The standard Lumber Link kit will create an open area up to 30 feet wide. Options include Porch Extensions of 15 feet on each side, multiple roof options and building styles. The Gambrel roof option is perfect for a spacious second floor.

The new "6-inch x 8-inch Hercules Fixture" allows for clear span widths up to 60 feet with certain requirements. We also offer Steel Rafters custom made to your specifications for larger buildings. Second floor steel I-beams with pre-welded tabs, for the floor joists, are available at your request. Custom fixtures for cathedral ceilings, oversize door openings, and different roof pitches are common. The spacing of each bay frame/kit depends on which fixture you choose and your specific climate requirements.

Frames are assembled on the ground and raised into place using the foot locking system. No cranes or lifting equipment is needed and vertical supports are not set into cement, to eventually rot. Lumber Link does not require pressure-treated lumber and uses much less wood than trusses, making us an environmentally friendly, green company.

Lumber Link has been used to build garages, additions, porches, carports, businesses, airplane hangars, churches, commercial barns, storage facilities, homes and any type of pole barn imaginable.

This versatile building system can be erected by contractors or the do-it-yourself, builder. Complete building plans are available for sale on the website. Architectural engineering services are available for simple or detailed projects. We are glad to answer any of your questions. Be sure to check your local building requirements. Lumber Link is approved for stick-post building by the 2006 International Building Code. Call 800-724-8250 for details.
