In some cases, restraint of small suspended equipment can be unnecessary or handled by alternative means. Our design and engineering staff can help specifying engineers write clear customized specifications and help contractors determine the most cost effective methods to ensure code compliance, especially on projects with many terminal units.
Neoprene Hangers or Spring Hangers with Neoprene and Bottom Cup provide vibration isolation for suspended equipment. The neoprene element isolates from high frequency vibration and eliminates steel-to-steel contact. Neoprene coated up-stop washer provided for seismic applications to protect against damage.
To keep hanger rods from bending and buckling due to seismic activity, additional steel angles are clamped to our easy-to-install rod stiffener clamp, VAC. Our rod stiffener calculator will determine if and how many rod stiffeners are required based on seismic variables to save labor.
Utilizing the uniquely designed BulletLockTM securing mechanism, the BulletBraceTM is the fastest adjustable cable restraint system on the market.
Custom designed restraint solutions to be used for various structural types, including BulletClampTM. Other difficult structures to be noted are trusses, pan deck, thin concrete deck.
