“Gripple is a great system that is easy to use. Clean look and safer than other methods.”-
Eric Amburgey, Mechanical Contractor, Southland

For this project the mechanical contractor, Southland, was tasked with installing spiral duct and piping in an office in Irvine, California. 

The contractors were looking for a solution to make the installation process safer and quicker. Prior to this project they had no previous experience using Gripple products. They found that using Gripple fasteners eliminated the need for cutting threaded rod and strut and saved them over 30 labor hours. The highlight of the project was the ease of installation that the Gripple products provided versus the traditional method.
