Construction - Get back on track
Our suspension systems offer a faster, safer, cost effective and energy efficient alternative to threaded rod and channel. Globally renowned and in use on a multitude of high profile projects around the world, there’s never been a better time for construction professionals to switch to the time and labor saving benefits of the Gripple system, and get projects back on track in 2020.
Make significant time and cost savings
Gripple suspension kits deliver savings of up to 85% on installation times, when compared to threaded rod and channel. Intuitive design, simple installation and one handed adjustment means minimal time is required to train installers and complete the installation of building services.
Downtime on construction sites since lockdown means time will be at a premium; the cutting and filling of threaded rod, and the arduous process of its transportation around site will mean traditional systems feel at odds with the challenges of 2020. The simplicity of our system – its arrival to site as a ready-use-solution, complete with hangers, pre-cut lengths of wire rope and fused end fixings – will make Gripple, and faster project delivery, the new normal.
Stay safe on site
The use of Gripple solutions considerably minimises health and safety concerns, and in the current climate, that’s never been more vital. As a pre-engineered solution, Gripple kits arrive on site ready-to-use, removing the need for potentially hazardous hot works and cutting on-site. One box of Standard No. 2 cable rope kits weighs just 18 lbs, doing the same job as 330 lb of threaded rod and channel. Not only is the weight and bulk of carry material reduced, but also the time spent working at height.
Gripple solutions’ lightweight nature is particularly important within the context of social distancing guidelines. It only takes one person to carry the product on and around site, prepare it, install it and make adjustments – a significant advantage when compared to the labor intensive nature of threaded rod.
“I strongly reccommend Fast Trak and I will use it on other jobs because it’s fast and sturdy. Fast Trak system on labor saving alone makes a huge difference.”

AMI Mechanical, installing mechanical services on the project, required a concrete insert solution, whereby anchors are placed before pouring the concrete, to save installation and labor time and improve the cost efficiency of the project. The Gripple Spider Hanger was the preferred solution.View Case Study
