Gripple Fast Trak and Cable Basket Clips
Dacorum Borough Council have commenced works on a new residential and commercial development in Hemel Hempstead, located 24 miles northwest of London. The Council’s £11m scheme will comprise of 79 one and two bedroom flats, with a business suite located on the ground floor.
After an onsite meeting with a Gripple representative, E7 Building Services Ltd. could see the time and labour saving benefits in utilising the Fast Trak system for the building’s electrical containment. Despite works having already started, E7 Building Services Ltd made the move from the traditional installation methods of rod and strut, to Fast Trak, the pre-fabricated, trapeze bracket solution. Specifically designed for space-saving purposes, Fast Trak offers speed and flexibility, and is ideal for applications where ceiling space is at a premium. Fast Trak is easy to transport onsite and requires no cutting or filing to install, and can be multi-tiered to accommodate additional services.
Complementary to Fast Trak, E7 Building Services Ltd. secured the building’s cable baskets with the patented Gripple Cable Basket Clip. Utilising quick twist technology, the Cable Basket Clip provides an innovative method to fasten cable basket to Gripple Universal Brackets, and facilitates rapid installation when compared to traditional coach bolt methods.
