Seismic Bracing Systems offer a simple and engineered solution to brace and secure non-structural building services, improving the resilience and safety of buildings in the event of an earthquake.
Earthquakes cause ground vibrations that shake buildings and this shaking generates movements and stresses within the building structure, as well as in all the building’s non-structural components such as the mechanical services, electrical containment, ventilation ductwork, hydraulic pipes, and fire protection systems.
Zip-Clip Atlas bracing solutions work by transferring seismic forces to the supporting structural elements through cables in tension. In general, Zip-Clip braces can be fixed to slabs, columns, beams, etc. as per the anchor design specifications.
