Gripple introduces the Fast Trak to quick and easy installation

Gripple, Fast Trak

Suspension-system specialist Gripple has added a new trapeze bracket to its range. Fast Trak is designed for even faster and easier installation of many mechanical and electrical services, particularly where ceiling space is limited.

Fast Trak comprises metal tracks from 284mm to 534mm in length, accompanied by mounting brackets from 309mm to 959mm long. One of the most significant features of Fast Trak is that it is adaptable, as the brackets can be moved along the tracks to facilitate any position changes. Once the tracks and brackets are at the required height, the bracket ‘clicks’ into place and is secured with a safety lock. The tracks can then be folded neatly under the bracket, thereby eliminating the trimming of excess, thus delivering zero wastage and promoting risk free working practice.

Gripple says that Fast Trak is up to six times faster to install than traditional methods, and is suited for flexible and safe installation of electrical containment, ductwork, pipework and other mechanical services.

Fast Trak systems are delivered to site in pre-cut lengths, which eliminates cutting and filling on-site, with no need for a hot works permit, making installation faster and safer.
