QuakeLoc™ Seismic Cable Restraint Connectors
QuakeLoc™ connectors quickly and easily fastens cables used in the seismic restraint of piping, duct, electrical cable trays, and suspended equipment. QuakeLoc™ is proudly made in the USA.
Seismic Cable Restraint Systems carry tension only loads along the axis of the cable. They are used in pairs 180-degrees apart to restrain pipe, duct, electrical distribution systems or equipment in each axis. Cable restraints provide a load path between the building and the restrained component to ensure that it moves with the building. Bracing is required on both primary axes for all restrained systems. Spacing is determined by the building code and specifying engineer. Cable restraints are required for isolated systems as rigid restraints such as strut will short circuit the isolation.
QuakeLoc™ connectors are available for purchase as part of QuakeKit-P (Pipe), QuakeKit-D (Duct), and QuakeBulk seismic cable restraint systems. These QuakeKits are competitively priced and offer substantial labor savings when compared to competitors systems. Each kit includes the necessary hardware to connect to suspended components. Hardware to attach QuakeKit systems to concrete, steel or wood structures is also available.
