Internal diaphragm

When using internal diaphragm, make sure the corners of it are cut. On larger RHS use a stiffener with a central hole as well as cut corners. NEVER arrange a plate that blocks the entire cross section. It may be dangerous during hot dip galvanizing. (One may happen to be unpleasantly surprised when receiving an invoice if the entire section has filled with zinc which cannot escape!)
