Be Ready for “The Big One” With the Seismic Breakaway Hanger
The Seismic BreakAway Hanger is designed to separate at a preset load greater than the seismic joint’s static weight. This allows seismic joints to have complete freedom of movement so they can protect engineered piping systems and the building from damage during seismic events.
This is critical when hanger rods and supports are too short to allow freedom of movement.
After a quake, the BreakAway Hanger can be reset, ready to protect piping during a future event.
