Gripple Seismic Bracing systems are specifically designed and engineered to brace and secure suspended non-structural equipment (VAV boxes, fans, unit heaters, small in-line pumps, etc.) and components (HVAC duct, conduit/cable tray, and piping) within a building or structure to minimize damage from an earthquake or seismic event.
Four sizes of Gripple Seismic cable bracing kits are available, each with their own Load and Resistance Factor Designs (LRFD). The Seismic bracing kits come with a selection of pre-stretched Gripple Seismic cable, available in 10ft, 15ft and 20ft lengths, pre-attached end fittings, and standard or retrofit brackets.
As part of the engineering service, Gripple ensures that the bracing meets the seismic design requirements of the non-structural components, in regards to weight loads of the types of connection.
