Fast Trak now features a four-sided bracket as standard, offering a suspension point on every face and improving the versatility of the solution to suit multi-tiered services in any orientation. The bracket is compatible with standard channel products and accessories, as well as Gripple’s QT solutions, giving a broader range of installation options when using Fast Trak to suspend M&E services. Availability of slots on the side of the new bracket offer the ability to install services horizontally and vertically on the same system.

“Following the success of the existing Fast Trak design, we’ve improved the product by taking customer feedback on board."
The Development Process
Part of the ethos at Gripple is to send products to customers and let them work with them and find out what works and what can be improved, we then listen to their feedback. Therefore, Fast Trak has evolved.
Our customers like the current Fast Trak but have asked for a few tweaks, the main ones were to stiffen the tracks implement top and bottom loading. So Fast Trak III has these additional requirements requested by customers.

Growth & Success
The Fast Trak range was originally launched in 2017, and has since sold over 1 million pieces. A UK manufactured solution, Fast Trak removes the stresses associated with the increasing cost of raw materials and subsequent availability of supply. Available via a nationwide distribution network, the solution is delivered in lightweight packaging, easing handling on site, as well as reducing deliveries to site.
