nVent CADDY cable bracing is a simple seismic bracing method for mechanical, electrical, plumbing (MEP) and fire sprinkler systems, including CPVC pipe systems. Cable bracing is the only option when brace lengths exceed the brace length limitation of 9'-7" (3 m) for strut or when confined/crowded spaces make rigid systems difficult to install. The system includes steel cables complying with the ASCE® 19 pre-streching requirements, attachment fittings, swaged oval sleeves & related tools, as well as pre-assembled kits.
Color-coded cable conforms to IBC®, ASCE® 7, ASCE® 19 and NFPA® 13 requirements for field identification of cable size and strength
