Gripple strikes again with a revolutionary system to speed up and ease services installation

Gripple, creator of an increasing range of pioneering building services suspension systems, strikes again with Fast Trak™ which is designed for even faster and easier installation of many mechanical and electrical services, particularly where ceiling space is limited.

Fast Trak™, a pre-fabricated, trapeze bracket, also ‘hits the spot’ for flexible and safe installation of electrical containment, ductwork, pipework and other mechanical services. Up to six times faster to install than traditional methods, including threaded rod and channel, the product offers tool-free adjustment, and an ideal solution for instances where ceiling space is less than 800mm.

Fast Trak™ comprises metal tracks, from 284mm to 534mm in length, accompanied by mounting brackets, from 309mm to 959mm long, and is designed to suit differing installations in residential buildings, high-rise office blocks, hotels, hospitals, open retail spaces or transportation hubs. For quick and simple measuring there are indicators at the end of each a bracket as a handy guide.

Compact in size and efficient, Fast Trak™ systems are delivered to site in pre-cut lengths, which not only reduces vehicle movements during transport and eases handling on-site but also eliminates cutting, and filing with no need for a ‘hot works’ permit, making the system safer to install. Prior to installation Fast Trak™ systems can be stacked on-site in small areas to reduce storage and promote cleaner working environments.

During installation, the Fast Trak™ is adjustable as the brackets can be moved along the tracks to facilitate any required position changes. Once the tracks and brackets are at the required height, the bracket ‘clicks’ into place and is secured with a safety lock. The tracks can then be folded neatly under the bracket, thereby eliminating the trimming of excess, thus delivering zero wastage and promoting risk free working practice.

Each track and bracket system can suspend a maximum weight up to 180kg with a 3:1 safety factor to deliver all the strength of a rod system with added flexibility and easy use.
