Fig. 980 - Universal Swivel Sway Brace Attachment
Size Range — One size fits bracing pipe 1" thru 2", TOLCO 12 gauge channel, and all
structural steel up to 1/4" thick.
Component of State of
Material — Carbon Steel
California OSHPD Approved
Function — Multi-functional attachment to structure or
Seismic Restraints System
braced pipe fitting.
Features — This product’s design incorporates a concentric attachment opening which is critical to the performance
of structural seismic connections. NFPA 13 (2010)
indicates clearly that fastener table load values are based
only on concentric loading. Mounts to any surface angle.
Break off bolt head assures verification of proper
Installation — The Fig.980 is the structural or transitional
attachment component of a longitudinal or lateral sway
brace assembly. It is intended to be combined with the
"bracing pipe" and TOLCO "braced pipe" attachment, Fig.
1000, 1001, 2002, 4L, 4A or 4B to form a complete bracing
assembly. NFPA 13 and/or OSHPD guidelines should be
To Install — Place the Fig. 980 onto the "bracing pipe". Tighten the set bolt until set bolt head breaks off.
Attachment can pivot for adjustment to proper brace angle.
Approvals — Underwriters Laboratories Listed in the USA (UL) and Canada (cUL). Approved by Factory Mutual
Engineering (FM). Included in our Seismic Restraints Catalog approved by the State of California Office
of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD). For additional load, spacing and placement information
relating to OSHPD projects, please refer to the TOLCO Seismic Restraint Systems Guidelines.
Note — The Fig. 980 Swivel Attachment and the Fig. 1001, Fig. 1000, Fig. 2002, Fig. 4A, Fig. 4B or Fig. 4L Pipe
Clamp make up a sway brace system of UL Listed attachments and bracing materials which satisfies the requirements of Underwriters’ Laboratories and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA)
Finish — Plain
Note — Available in Electro-Galvanized finish.
