Gripple Fire Rated Range
A Fire Rated versatile suspension kit for a variety of applications including the suspension of HVAC, pipework and electrical containment from different substrates in the food industry and high humidity environments. BRE tested to F120 to the temperatures associated with BS476 Part 20 / DIN4102 Part 2. Independant test data is available with load limits and exposure times.
- Quick – fewer components compared to traditional methods, up to six times faster to install than traditional suspension systems
- Durable – ceramic rollers and stainless steel springs for corrosion resistance in high humidity environments
- Safe – no tools or 'hot works' permit required for installation, improving health and safety on-site
- Easy – simple adjustment using the Setting Key supplied reduces time spent working at height
- Strong – industry approved, conforms to DW144
- Lightweight – easy to move and handle on-site, whilst reducing the load on the building structure
- Aesthetic – the design complements enclosed and open soffit spaces
All Gripple Fire Rated products are supplied in ready-to-use kits. Including:
- A length of wire (Available in 1,2,3,4,5 and 10 metres)
- Pre-crimped End Fixing (See available fixings below)
- Fire Rated Gripple
- Setting key
How to Chose the Right Size
A simple formula to determine the correct Gripple size is:
Weight per metre x distance between hangers
An example of this would be - 15kg load per metre x 2m between hangers = 30kg
This would mean the minimum size required would be No.2 Gripple
|Safe Working Load
|10 - 45 kg
|45 - 90 kg
|90 - 225 kg
