Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2008154564A1] A seismic sway brace includes a clamp for engaging a circular object, a sway brace member, and a pair of connecting mechanisms for coupling the circular object to the sway brace member, and for coupling the sway brace member to building structure. The sway brace member may be a sway brace pipe or rod. Each of the connecting mechanisms may include a pair of strap clamps, held together by a retainer. The strap clamps and/or the circular object clamp may include one or more longitudinal slots. The longitudinal slots enhance wrapping of the clamps that engage the sway brace member or circular object, allowing the clamps to better engage the sway brace member or circular object.
