Catenary suspension system for services

Gripple, suspension system,services

Gripple’s D6 catenary suspension system for services in buildings has an integral locking mechanism that simultaneously pre-loads the wire in both channels with one action. The system provides a solution where there is no practical anchoring point such as a soffit or purlin.

Certified for 100 kg of vertical load, with a 5:1 safety factor, the D5 catenary solution is compatible with galvanised 6 mm or 1/4 in steel wire rope. It is supplied as a ready-to-use kit — including wire rope cut to bespoke lengths, a hex locking key and a release key.
