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.
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.
LATERAL TELESCOPING BRACE ASSEMBLY:
The nVent CADDY Lateral Telescoping Brace Assembly (CSBT) is designed to overcome many inconveniences of using a traditional lateral brace. Unlike other products on the market, the CSBT is simply attached to structure, telescoped to meet the pipe, and quickly locked in place with a threaded V-bolt.
