  • Unit mitigates service clashes
  • Unique design mitigates the need to account for inter story drift
  • Tested with head track and full wall construction to provide confidence
  • Provides seismic separation, preserving ceiling warranty
  • Preserves ceiling warranty, ensuring validity of installers PS3
  • Tested under ULS and SLS loads to ensure longevity of performance
  • Applicable to all seismic zones and all seismic loads
  • Patented low profile connection bolt allows for glazing clearance
  • Height adjustment of unit allows clearance from troffer lights and services
  • Tracklok Flat can be retroactively installed with Retro fitting
  • Tracklok Flat can brace timber framed walls with Timba fitting.
  • Allows for 64mm and 92mm boxed bracing to be used reducing waste on site
Scope of Use
  • For interior application only.
  • Must be installed in accordance with manufacturer's specification and within the parameters of AS/NZS1170.
