Seismic bracing for mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) | Eaton PSEC

Seismic bracing is structural support systems designed to allow non-structural systems the ability to resist lateral force caused by earthquakes. Seismic bracing secures non-structural systems to the structural components of a building such as ceilings and I-beams. Krista Junker, Product Line Manager, discusses the importance of seismic bracing in terms of life safety, mitigating loss to crucial systems and how it can reduce capital investments losses. Krista also • Illustrates components of seismic bracing (system brace, brace member, and structural attachment) • Different types of seismic bracing (cable bracing and rigid bracing) • And the various building codes and standards that govern seismic bracing Hannah Gvillo, Application Engineer, also joins to explain how Eaton services can support seismic projects from pre-bid to installation, ensuring projects meet regional codes and standards. Hannah educates why vibration control is important, some of the solutions that Eaton offers, and advantages of seismic cable kits. Eaton solutions for seismic projects include TOLCO and B-Line components that provide support to mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP), HVAC, data, communication, and fire protection systems.
