Sway brace attachments

TOLCO sway brace attachments have been installed around the world for bracing pipe against sway and seismic disturbance where earthquakes are prevalent. Our UL listed and FM approved quality seismic bracing products are confidently relied upon by the fire protection industry. Sway brace attachments are the pipe attachment component of a complete sway brace assembly, and used in conjunction with an upper attachment, and joined together with bracing pipe per NFPA 13.

Sway brace attachments

TOLCO Fig. 3000

A first in the market, the TOLCO Fig. 3000 is UL listed as a sway brace for CPVC and IPS pipe from 1 to 3". The patented design does not compress the plastic pipe, and the brace pipe to system pipe offset keeps the brace pipe from leaving harmful residue and oils on the plastic pipe.

The Fig. 3000 is used in conjunction with a Fig. 900 Series fitting and joined together with bracing pipe per NFPA 13, forming a complete sway brace assembly.
