hyrax® seismic bracing

The building code defines the various requirements and minimum standard for structures and associated non-structural components to withstand loads from natural events, such as earthquakes.

 

Mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems in buildings need to be braced to prevent excessive movement during earthquakes, in accordance with the Building Code.

Certain systems under specific weights and sizes may be exempt from bracing, but navigating the various rules can be challenging.

 

The Eurofast Global seismic engineering team is intimately familiar with industry standard guidelines and can produce mark-up drawings that indicate bracing locations to ensure code compliance, customising seismic bracing, seismic restraints, supports and attachments.

Rigid Bracing

Rigid bracing systems require half the number of braces as cable bracing systems, dramatically reducing installation time as well as the number of stress points on the structure.
