Create a Complete Submittal Package with TOLBrace™ Software
Designed for ease of use, the TOLBrace software steps the user through a series of questions to determine the
scope of the project. It helps the user create detailed reports of the appropriate seismic bracing components
and TIFF files for CAD use. It calculates the correct bracing loads per NFPA 13 guidelines, Uniform Building
Code (UBC) and International Building Code (IBC). Also, to help ensure users are following the latest codes,
standards, and product requirements, TOLBrace software also includes an automatic update feature.

TOLCO™ Seismic Bracing
for Branch Line Restraints
A Listed Sway Brace Device used as a Branch Line Restraint
Satisfies Requirements of NFPA 13 2010 & 2013 Section 9.3.6.1(1)
This option while providing some of the best resistance to
horizontal loads should be considered carefully. Seismic
brace components have published maximum loads and
when submitted for review, should be accompanied with
zone of influence (ZOI) calculations per NFPA 13; 10 & 13
Section 9.3.5.6 that take into consideration the orientation
of the fastener and the brace angle so as not to exceed
these loads. An area authority should request these
calculations for branch line restraints as well to verify they
have the capacity to restrain the required loads.
Rely on us for all your seismic and engineering needs
TOLCO Seismic Bracing
products are manufactured in
California, which is located on
the “Ring of Fire” - locations
that experience multiple
earthquakes a year. Most are
small, but some are significant
and the potential for a major
catastrophic earthquake is
always present.
Being located in a virtual
“living laboratory of seismic
activity” has driven our team
of engineers to develop some
of the best seismic bracing
product designs in the industry.
Our products are known
and respected by installers,
designers, and fire protection
authorities worldwide.
For over 45 years, TOLCO
Seismic Bracing products have
been installed around the
world where earthquakes
are prevalent. Our UL Listed
and FM approved quality
seismic bracing products are
confidently relied upon to help
protect lives and property,
from these devastating forces.
TOLCO Seismic Bracing
products are specified
worldwide for bracing fire
sprinkler systems against
damage from earthquakes.
Installing our UL Listed
and FM approved bracing
products helps to ensure
compliance with the National
Fire Protection Association
Standard for the installation
of fire sprinkler systems
(NFPA 13).
This brochure is intended to
show examples of how TOLCO
Seismic Bracing can help you
meet the NFPA 13 Guidelines
for Branch Line Restraints.
NFPA 13 GUIDELINES FOR BRANCH LINE RESTRAINTS*
The National Fire Protection Association Pamphlet 13 (2010-2013) as part of a complete seismic bracing
system, requires that sprinkler mains and cross mains be braced and that branch lines 2 inches and
smaller be restrained.
It should be noted that devices that are listed by UL as
seismic restraint devices, as tested and defined by UL
203A, only meet the criteria of option 6, other approved
means, noted on previous page. As such it is appropriate
for the area authority to require test results or structural
calculations for the specific installation under review.
Sway Brace Assembly Example
CPVC Hangers Utilizing Two Points of Attachment
Satisfies Requirements of NFPA 13 2013 Section 9.3.6.1(4)
Typical CPVC hangers utilize two #10 x 1" screws and attach the sprinkler pipe directly to the structure. Similar to the wrap-around
u-hanger option this sufficiently restrains the pipe and requires no additional calculations. Please note to be careful when selecting
this option as not all CPVC hangers are UL Listed as both hangers and restrainers.
