Gripple seismic bracing systems are specifically designed and engineered to brace and secure suspended nonstructural 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. 

In contrast to standard wire bracing, Gripple’s seismic system is in compliance with AS1170.4 and NZ4219 and fully tested and approved to OSHPD OPA-2123-10 and UL NEBS GR 63 Core Certification and has SMACNA verification, recognised as the most demanding requirement in the world. 

Gripple Seismic Wire Bracing Systems offer the following advantages: 

  • No field swaging of wires
  • Up to 10 times faster to install
  • No tools required
  • Colour coding allows easy field verification
  • Suitable for new or retrofit installations
  • Can be used in a variety of bracing configurations (transverse, longitudinal, 4-way)
  • Complete pre-engineered systems
  • In compliance with AS1170.4 and NZ4219
  • OSHPD OPA 2123-10 approval (GS10, GS12, and GS19 systems)
  • SMACNA verified
  • UL NEBS GR 63 Core Certification
