Groupama Offices, Aix La Duranne

The company specialising in technical installations installed 200 Fast Trak on a concrete structure. Fast Trak product was used to suspend the cable baskets over an area of 1,500 m2 with a drop length of 535 mm. Thanks to the system’s speed and minimal labour required, installation time were 3 times faster and allowed the labour savings to be halved.

“The Fast Trak solution made installation fast and easy-to-use. It was a considerable gain of time. In addition, the product is flexible so we can easily adapt the height. Although flexible, the product remains safe with safety locks ensuring security. Then, the design is clean and aesthetic.”- Project Manager -

The french insurance company, Groupama, has decided to set up its offices in Aix La Duranne, located in south-west of the town of Aix-en-Provence. A company specialising in technical installations was called in to suspend cable baskets on a concrete structure over a surface area of 1,500 m2.

To complete the project, the installer called on Gripple, known and recognised for its expertise in suspension
systems. For this project, Gripple offered one of its innovative product, Fast Trak, which suited perfectly to the suspension of cable baskets.

Fast Trak is a ready-to-use and safe suspension solution. This pre-fabricated system removes the need to cut threaded rod or channel on site. This product offers speed and flexibility for any cable baskets installation, as the bracket can be moved up and down the tracks to accommodate changes in position during installation. The safety locks ensure security once brackets & tracks are in place. This solution could not fail to impress the installer; Fast Trak is up to six times faster to install than traditional suspension systems.

With a Gripple product like this, the installer saved a considerable amount of time - saving 6 working
days. He needed just 4 working days to install the cable trays, compared to the usual 2 weeks using a traditional method. Such a gain of time made possible to divide the total cost of the installation by 3. The installation company thus saved € 1,680. The installer therefore left the finished site largely on time with a safe, clean and aesthetic result, but also a labour savings.

The installer will be delighted by the considerable gain of time during installation.
