Pre-fabricated trapeze bracket solution offering speed, flexibility and efficient use of space
Blue Mountain Energy used Fast Trak to install VRF services in Las Vegas, Nevada.
“Fast Trak is the fastest trapeze and racking system out there. No more all thread and strut on our job sites moving forward.”-
The contractor, Blue Mountain Energy, was tasked with installing VRF services on a hotel restaurant with exposed ceiling.
Not only were they challenged with installing 15 Daikin ductless split VRF systems but they also needed to remove all of the existing duct and FCU’s. The entire project was expected to take 6 weeks to complete.
Prior to this job, the contractor had no experience with Gripple products. They found that not only were the products easy to install but also provided excellent labor savings.
The Fast Trak system was 6.5x faster than the traditional method, saving the contractor 4 weeks of installation time. The advantages of Fast Trak convinced the project manager to eliminate the use of threaded rod and strut on all future projects.
