StratoBrace
Description

The StratoBrace is designed to lock into a two way suspended grid system in order to increase its ability to withstand lateral loads.  It is a simple system that is easy to install. If perimeter fixing is insufficient for the seismic demand, a ceiling must be restrained to the structure above using another method such as StratoBrace.

This product provides a strong, effective and tested method to provide lateral restraint.

Key Features
  • The StratoBrace provides a proprietary bracket to attach a compression strut and two orthogonally opposing angle struts to the ceiling grid
  • Its performance has been extensively tested 
  • The Stratobrace bracket uses grade 250 steel 2mm thick, its yield strength is 250MPa
  • Use the T&R Seismic Calculator to design a ceiling that complies with the requirements set out in NZS1170.5
