The butting elements shall be staggered laid out and the two adjacent standing tube shall not be set within one span. The staggered space along the height between two adjacent sleeve joint heads on one standing tube in the same span shall not be smaller than 500mm. And the two sleeve coupler heads shall not be set in one same space. For the extension length, it is better to be more than 1m, and use more than 2 swivel couplers to complete the connection.
