To prevent catastrophic damage from natural disasters that would lead to a whole building collapsing, architects and contractors rely on seismic bracing. In small buildings, an earthquake can completely compromise the structure, leaving behind irreparable damage to any items held inside. Or even worse, cause serious injury or death to anyone during the time of an earthquake.
Despite these horrifying risks of not having earthquake protection bracing, some buildings are still unprotected. While bracing does not remove 100% of damage occurrence, seismic bracing strongly improves your infrastructure and will hold up to much stronger environmental forces than buildings would without seismic bracing installed. Our bracing safely secures your building and reduces chances of collapse, preventing unnecessary damage, even in retrofit scenarios.
Some may think that rigid bracing is the best option for small buildings. However, our seismic bracing cable is much faster to install, more manageable to maneuver around a jobsite, and more economical to implement than standard piping. Simply put, installing Loos seismic bracing cable in low rise buildings is very simple. Our cable comes in 250ft. spools for easy installations and with the correct attachment hardware, you can quickly install our cable in any building. The ease of installation, alongside the benefit of only needing one crew member to complete installations will allow you to move quickly to the next job. Thereby, saving you time and gaining you money. Whether you are securing HVAC, electrical, or sprinkler systems overhead, Loos Seismic has you covered.
Some types of buildings that our seismic bracing cable has been installed in are churches, houses, conference centers, memorials, and more.
