3/8″ Loos & Co. Two-Way Retrofit Anchoring Fitting for Seismic Cable Bracing
Use this pack of five (5) two-way retrofit anchoring fittings to secure Loos & Co. seismic bracing cables to an existing 3/8″ (10 mm) fastener. With a 3/8″ slot and two cable mounts, this fastener allows contractors to secure Loos-brand cables without needing to fully remove an existing fastener. Simply loosen the fastener, slide it right in, and tighten again until firm. As part of a seismic cable bracing assembly, this fitting can help support fire sprinkler systems, cable trays, HVAC equipment, clevis hangers, and trapeze supports.
Sold as a pack of five clips, each fitting has two mounting holes that will accept Gold (#GO3) or Orange (#OR4) cable and is ideal for 2-way “cross” bracing. When applied correctly, the Loos and Co. SAFR2 model will maintain the rated break strength of both compatible seismic cables without the need for a thimble and may be used at both ends of the cable for anchoring equipment.
Every 3/8″ two-way seismic anchor is UL-listed, compliant with many national and international building codes, and suitable for installation in accordance with chapter 9.3 of NFPA 13. It is also proudly made in the USA, in full compliance with the Buy American Act, and the Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive adopted in 2004 by the European Union.
Why should my fire sprinkler system include seismic bracing?
All seismic construction for fire sprinkler systems should be designed and completed by licensed professionals. Seismic support for pipes, especially sprinkler pipes, is critical for two reasons: 1) minimizing stress in piping, and 2) minimizing damaging forces in the event of an earthquake. This is accomplished with a careful balance of flexibility and rigidity in the piping that assures the piping will move with the building, instead of a direction that could cause significant damage to the piping, the building, or its occupants.
Will this clip work for my seismic bracing assembly?
Loos & Co. Seismic Restraint Clip is designed for use in retrofit environments, sliding over an existing 3/8″ (10 mm) fastener. The two mounting holes will accept Gold (#GO3) and Orange (#OR4) cables to maintain existing breaking strengths up to 1,700 pounds.
