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.

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.

TOLCO Fig. 4LA longitudinal in-line sway brace attachment

Designed to attach to system pipe from 1 to 12” and is used with strut channel or pipe as the brace member. Approved as both a longitudinal and lateral brace, consolidating the number of brace configurations to a single product. Break-off bolt heads at the pipe clamp and brace member connection provide visual verification of proper torque and installation.

TOLCO Fig. 1001 sway brace attachment

The Fig. 1001 is used in conjunction with a Fig. 900 Series fitting and joined together with bracing pipe per NFPA 13, forming a complete lateral sway brace assembly. The unique design requires no threading of bracing pipe, comes assembled and ready for installation, and has built-in visual verification of correct installation.
