Installation Walkthroughs:

As installing seismic bracing cable is a critical and complex task, our Seismic design guides have over 30 pages dedicated to the installation process. We provide information for numerous types of installations including, lateral bracing, longitudinal bracing, 4-way bracing, riser bracing, clevis pin, and many more. The instructions have clear images and charts along with written direction to ensure that your installation project is successful.

Product Overviews:

Alongside our installation section, our guide has numerous pages dedicated to overviews of the products we carry. We provide information for our bulk cable spools, zinc-plated oval sleeves, seismic anchoring fittings, low-pry fittings, cable kits, and on the numerous tools we carry. Our detailed guide explains when you should use each of our products and provides images with labels to tell you what the different parts of each product are used for during cable installations.

Variety of Guides:

As our design guides are so important for your bracing installation success, we offer the guide in two languages. Alongside our English guide, we also provide our guide in Spanish translation which has the exact same content but translated for our Spanish speaking customers. We also have our 2019, 2016, and 2010 guides available in both English and Spanish, meaning if you have used our older guides you can cross-reference the content with our newest 2019 version.
