Gripple Seismic Tour Shakes Up North America

To kick off the launch of its Gripple® Seismic product line, Gripple representatives took to the streets from July 27 thru August 11 for an eleven city, back-to-back tour.  In each city, information was presented to an assembled audience of engineers, contractors, and Distributors with the purpose of educating about the technicalities of seismic bracing, as well as the Gripple Seismic cable bracing systems and its complementary line of Acrefine vibration isolation products.    Stops on the tour included: Ottawa Ontario, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., St. Louis, Seattle, Portland, San Jose, Los Angeles, Dallas, and Puerto Rico.

“This was a fantastic face-to-face forum for educating our audience about the complex and highly technical topic of seismic bracing, and for introducing the Gripple® Seismic and Acrefine lines of products,” said Barry Williamson, Seismic Product Manager at Gripple Inc. “We are thankful for the support of our local sales teams, and the very enthusiastic response in many of the cities.”

Seismic bracing of suspended services is an increasing requirement across North America, in particular for high occupancy or essential facilities such as schools, hospitals, and Emergency Operation Centers.
