When it comes to selecting a bracing cable company, you have choices when it comes to reliability, performance, and qualifications. Fortunately, Loos Seismic Bracing offers an unmatched balance of all three, with certified bracing cable and high quality tools. Here are three benefits of using Loos Seismic Bracing as your top manufacturer:
Loos & Co., Inc. has been manufacturing wire rope, cable, and cable accessories since 1958. We are specialists in small diameter wire ropes and aircraft cables. You can find Loos' cables and cable assemblies used on critical flight control and mechanical control systems on the commercial and military aircraft manufactured by Boeing, Lockheed, Airbus, Bombardier, and Embraer, just to name a few. We are found on US Government military equipment, NASA flight systems, and on commercial lifting and rigging applications where connections and strength ratings cannot fail.
Loos has now applied this technology and our experience to the Seismic Bracing Industry. Demands for ever more stringent building code compliance, and the need for new, innovative, and cost saving building components, were the catalysts in the development of Loos' Seismic Bracing Cable System. Our system uses cable assemblies acting in tension, pulling from opposite sides of the braced component, therefore immobilizing the braced item. Our cables are attached to the actual building structural component. This causes the item that is braced to actually move with the building structure during a seismic event, allowing critical mechanical components, power supplies, fluid transfer systems, and fire sprinkler systems to remain operational after an earthquake has done its damage. After all, most losses from earthquakes come from fires that are caused by broken gas lines, chemical lines, and fire sprinkler systems that do not work.
Loos is very pleased to announce that we have Listings with the ICC Evaluation Service. Our ICC-ES Listings, ESL-1004 and ESL-1007, certify Loos’ compliance with the 2012 International Building Code (IBC) Applicable Sections: 903.3 and 2208.1. These ICC-ES Listings in ESL-1007 make Loos’ Seismic Bracing Cable one more smart choice for you to consider for your Seismic Bracing needs in CSI Divisions 23, 25, 26, 27 and 28.
