When it comes to quality seismic protection system, several potential hazards should be accounted for, but necessary components can be simplified into seven considerations. Those are:
Buildings can be safeguarded from damages of earthquakes—and subsequent days of downtime and unsafe conditions for tenants—through approved installation of seismic bracing. To aid in this, nVent CADDY offers cable bracing and recently launched rigid bracing for the mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) service market.
Prefabrication is undeniably beneficial in the long term for contractors, installer and site owners. However, some perceive prefabrication practices as difficult. Although the benefits outweigh the drawbacks, such apprehensions can deter contractors from making improvements to their processes. We've addressed some common concerns about prefabrication:
Rooftop mechanical and electrical systems are very sensitive to wind and seismic damage. Rooftop anchoring is vital for the protection of systems including: pipe, conduit, cable tray, duct and equipment.
TELESCOPING STRUT REPLACEMENT:
The nVent CADDY Telescoping Strut Replacement is an innovative alternative to using strut-based trapeze or support structures, and it accommodates standard strut-based fittings. This tool-free solution eliminates the need to handle long lengths of strut and cut sections of strut to size. The bracket telescopes to the desired length, attaches to threaded rod, and is locked in place by snapping closed a spring retainer.
CHOOSING A SUPPORT SYSTEM:
Wire rope support systems provide benefits to make them a superior support method compared with threaded rod, jack chain and metal strap. Discover the ways a wire rope performs better than jack chain.
In 1956, the CADDY brand was the first to develop and market spring steel fasteners. Since then, spring steel has gained popularity, and the offering has expanded due to cost effectiveness and ease of installation.
Shot-fire brackets are an innovative way to allow installers to attach drop rods and fasteners directly to a concrete structure. However, with so many different shot-fire bracket installation tools on the market, they must be sized to be installed with a variety of tools. Not only do nVent CADDY Shot-Fire Drop Rods enable tool standardization, but they offer other important benefits as well.
CHOOSING A SUPPORT SYSTEM:
Wire rope systems are a superior support method when compared to threaded rod, jack chain and metal strap.
In particular, while threaded rod is a popular hanging method for large mechanical applications like pipe and duct, wire rope support systems offer unique benefits that often provide a better method of installation.
