Rod Stiffener

Our innovative Seismic Rod Stiffener system is used to prevent threaded rod from buckling vertically during seismic activity or blast events. Resilient and versatile in its design, the Rod Stiffener can be used with threaded rod sizes M10, M12, 3/8" and 1/2". In comparison to the traditional method of using metal strut and clips, it is 80% lighter, quicker to install and requires no tools for installation.

  • Faster Installation Time - Up to 2 minutes quicker per 3 foot installation
  • Lightweight Solution - Up to 80% lighter than strut / pipe and clamp based methods
  • No Tools Required - Click and connect mechanism, makes installation simple without the need for tools
  • Enhances Health & Safety - Lighter products and a reduction in time working at height to install ensures a safer working environment
  • Versatile Design - The addition of 'Crush Tooth' allow Gripple's Rod Stiffener to be installed on M10, M12, 3/8" and 1/2" threaded rod
  • Resilient Materials - Polypropylene body (PP) and 22% glass filled Polypropylene (22GFPP) couplings
  • Straight from the Box Installation - Removes the need to cut steel strut / pipe to length with a saw on site

Seismic Bracing

Gripple Seismic Bracing systems are specifically designed and engineered to brace and secure suspended non-structural equipment (VAV boxes, fans, unit heaters, small in-line pumps, etc.) and components (HVAC duct, conduit/cable tray, and piping) within a building or structure to minimize damage from an earthquake or seismic event.

Four sizes of Gripple Seismic cable bracing kits are available, each with their own Load and Resistance Factor Designs (LRFD). The Seismic bracing kits come with a selection of pre-stretched Gripple Seismic cable, available in 10ft, 15ft and 20ft lengths, pre-attached end fittings, and standard or retrofit brackets.

As part of the engineering service, Gripple ensure that the bracing meets the seismic design requirements of the nonstructural components, in regards to weight loads of the types of connection.
