How does seismic bracing cable work?

Seismic assemblies aim to minimize the stresses and damage that occur during seismic activity. Seismic bracing cables provide flexibility where the building might move and rigidity where the building is expected to stay still. This will allow the building and the piping to move together, and avoid damage to the structure as a whole.

It is vital that seismic braces are laid out with care and extreme attention to the anticipated behavior of the building during seismic activity.
