High Rise Architecture

For high-rise architecture, one of the most crucial components is bracing installation. When high-rise buildings fall, they have the potential to impact countless lives and the infrastructure and public systems & services within the area. One of the best ways to mitigate the problem is installing seismic bracing cable. Seismic bracing cable will help prevent devastation on each floor of high-rise buildings and thereby decrease the chances of extreme damage to any part of your building.

One of the biggest concerns for building contractors when installing some form of seismic prevention equipment is the time it will take and labor costs. When choosing rigid bracing, these problems are highly persistent. The main reason that rigid bracing creates these problems is because of its weight and size. Rigid pipes can only be cut to certain lengths and the attachment hardware needed to create secure installations will require different sized fittings. The various pipe lengths and hardware sizes makes transport to and around job sites difficult. Additionally, rigid bracing requires at least three people per brace to complete installations.

While pipe bracing might be a big concern for your high-rise buildings due to the additional costs, time, and labor, there is an alternative, our seismic bracing cable! Our cable only requires one person to complete installations and as it is cable, it can be cut to your desired length. You will not need to carry around various pipe sizes, rather just your easily transportable spool of seismic bracing cable. As our cable is easy to maneuver, getting around large high-rise buildings is simple. 

Our seismic bracing has been installed and used successfully in various high-rise buildings, including hospitals, apartment buildings, hotels, airports, and more.
