Eaton Introduces Catalog of OSHPD Pre-Approved Products to Simplify the Specification and Submittal Process in Seismic Projects

HIGHLAND, Ill. – Power management company Eaton’s B-Line business today introduced a new product catalog featuring a range of seismic bracing solutions pre-approved by the California Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD). Designed to help specifiers meet the current code requirements, the catalog – OPM-0052-13 – Fire Sprinkler System Applications – includes a range of products, including many from the TOLCO product line, suitable for commercial applications.

We developed this new product catalog to simplify the process of specifying products to brace fire sprinkler systems,” said Greg Shaughnessy, seismic bracing product manager, Eaton’s B-Line business. “In addition to including a wide range of pre-approved seismic bracing products to help end users meet the strict OSHPD-requirements for projects based on the current California Building Code, CBC 2013, the catalog serves as a valid resource for projects that fall under all of the previous versions of the code.”

The new catalog provides bracing details and load information pages. The numerous details, load charts and product information are designed to function as effective submittal sheets for projects under the jurisdiction of OSHPD or for any project that requires an engineer-stamped submittal. Products in the catalog include a range of seismic bracing products designed for use with fire sprinkler systems, including universal attachments with visual verification features built in for easy layout, design and installation.
