Seismic Bracing
Fig. 77 - TOLCO™ System Piping Attachment for Restraint (Sway Brace) Assembly
Seismic Bracing
Size Range: 3⁄8" and 1⁄2" all threaded rod (ATR)
Material: Steel
Function: System attachment for restraint
Features: The Fig. 77 is to be used with both (IPS) steel and CPVC fire sprinkler pipe,
in 1" through 2" diameters. It fits multiple rod diameters allowing for field adjustment
if longer brace material is needed. Its sturdy break-off bolt will not strip and verifies
proper installation. Its snap on design has many advantages. It can be installed with
one-hand, can easily position the brace all thread rod over the top of the pipe being
braced or underneath the pipe being braced to accommodate the desired brace angle.
It can be fixed in place or moved to a new location by sliding along the pipe or snapping on or off and relocating. An entire prefabricated assembly (Fig. 76 & 77 joined
with ATR) can be pre-assembled to save time and labor and later be field installed and
adjusted to fit.
Installation Instructions: Install TOLCO™ Fig. 77 System Attachment to sprinkler
pipe branch line to be restrained. It can be positioned with the rod engagement either
above or below the sprinkler pipe. Rod must extend a min. of 1" past the edge of the
Fig. 77. The attachment can be slid along the pipe to position close to where the Fig.
76 structural attachment will be fastened to the structure. The snap on design allows
maximum adjustability during this stage of the installation process. Engage ATR (previously attached to the Fig. 76 Structural Attachment to the rod engagement portion
of the Fig. 77 System Attachment. Tighten set bolt on Fig. 77 System Attachment
until head breaks off verifying proper installation torque. For more information visit our
website for the most up to date instructions sheets.
Approvals: FM Global Approved <FM>. UL Listed refer to page 55c.
Finish: Pre-Galvanized.
