Seismic Bracing Cable Products
Loos & Co’s Seismic Bracing Cable Assemblies are the very best cable sway braces! Loos & Co. manufactures the most cost-effective, code-compliant seismic bracing system on the market today. The system installs in half the time of conventional rigid pipe bracing systems. The AISI Standard for structural cable includes a requirement for pre-stretching cable, a requirement for using permanent end fittings that are recommended by a cable manufacturer, and a requirement that permanent end fittings develop the break strength of the cable. The Loos & Co., Inc. Seismic Bracing Cable products satisfy these requirements and, therefore, may be used with the best safety factor. This reduces the sizes required to carry the earthquake loads and the smaller sizes employ less expensive end fittings that are faster to install.

Loos & Co.’s Seismic Braces are not limited in length by the radius of gyration ratio, (1/r) of 200 to resist buckling, because they act in tension only.
All of our oval cable swaging sleeves are in accordance to the MS51844 criteria. Zinc-plated for superior corrosion resistance. Available in all sizes.
Swaging & Crimping Tools
Crimping of the oval sleeve for these braces requires the correct tool to maintain strength. Loos offers handswaging tools as well as battery-powered swaging tools.
