Gripple hangers help to control pests in Natural History Museum

Gripple Hangers

The use of Gripple hangers for suspending M&E services in the new 8-storey, £78 million Darwin centre of the Natural History Museum has thrown up an unexpected benefit.— fewer horizontal surfaces on which destructive beetles can breed.

This factor was key to the design of the second phase of the Darwin Centre, where more than 17 million insects and 3 million plant specimens will be stored — necessitating a rigorous integrated pest-management plan.

Gripple hangers have been used to suspend electrical systems and spiral ductwork in the laboratories and also throughout the building, including some public areas.
