A prefabricated suspension system solution that brings great versatility for the housing of cabling and pipes, has become an important tool in driving efficiencies and increasing flexibility in installations.

Fast Trak is fast becoming a system of choice in the construction sector because of the speed and ease it brings commercial projects.  Further innovations have been made to the vertical track and horizontal bracket system to increase flexibility and efficiencies during the installation process.

“Our system continues to support the modern-day construction sector and its drive to use products that are efficient, safe for both installers and ongoing maintenance teams, and have a straightforward installation process,” said Mark Kimberley, Head of Construction Projects at Gripple. “It helps M&E contractors and installers to deliver this element of the project to agreed timescales and budgets, indeed because of the ease and accessibility of the system many projects have been able to continue even when staffing challenges have been present. Also, its tool free adjustments can be made with ease allowing contractors to complete installations in a faster time when compared with more traditional threaded rod methods of suspension.”

The new bracket innovation can be used in any orientation. Allowing use of standard channel products and accessories as well as its unique quarter turn accessories to increase flexibility.  There is a suspension point guide, providing faster and safer alignment of brackets as well as a pioneering four-way latch which can be used in any orientation, it negates the need for tools and provides a much faster and simpler installation and quick adjustment.

The advancements made to the track include a ladder style, this allows brackets to be installed in increments of 10mm meaning specified heights can be kept with minimal effort, also enabling the tiering of brackets, to increase the number of services per run. The new manufacturing technologies developed mean that the ladder track is now curved and can be snapped or bent providing a neat and tidy finish with minimal to zero waste all while delivering increased track rigidity and load ratings.

Sales of Fast Trak have increased globally thanks to the uniqueness of the system.  It has proven to bring benefits to any commercial project when working at heights and in tight spaces are major considerations to the overall efficiency of the installation all without compromising on performance and strength.

“Fast Trak has proven to be a straightforward yet ingenious solution for suspending electrical, pipework, ductwork and mechanical services in an efficient, safe and reliable way that can be tailored to ensure all necessary building legislation is complied with in the UK, Europe and the US,” said Mark. “The fact that it continues to deliver efficiencies in so many ways make it a hugely attractive product for contractors who are keen to manage costs and resources effectively and deliver an M&E system that is truly fit for modern construction projects.”

Manufactured by Gripple, Fast Trak is a zero-waste product which comprises metal tracks and mounting brackets which arrive at site in pre-cut lengths, it offers total embodied CO2 savings and provides BREAM credits and LEED points.
