What is a Gripple hanger?

The Gripple hanger is supplied as part of a complete suspension kit, comprising of the hanger and a high-tensile wire rope with a choice of fixing attached to it. The Gripple hanger incorporates a patented self-locking fastener mechanism that not only secures the wire rope, but also allows adjustment of the installation height.

 

The Gripple hanger is specifically designed to enable quick and easy installation of a variety of MEP (mechanical, electrical and plumbing) services, HVAC, signage, acoustic baffles and much more, and is a proven replacement to traditional threaded rod and chain solutions.

 

Gripple hangers are manufactured in a range of five standard sizes, all with an individual safe working load (from 10 kg up to 325 kg) and a safety factor of 5:1.

How does it work?

When the wire rope is inserted into the Gripple hanger channel and pulled through the other side, it is held in place by a spring-loaded high precision serrated wedge, allowing the wire to go one way, but not the other. The wire rope is then looped through the identical channel on the opposite side, providing a means of suspension. The Gripple hanger allows full adjustment to position the object being suspended.

Why Gripple?

Saves time and reduces costs
Up to six times faster to install than threaded rod and chain suspension systems meaning projects can be completed in less time

 

Environmentally friendly
Fewer components means a reduction in embodied CO2 of up to 97%.


Strong and versatile
Available in 5 load rated sizes from 10 kg to 325 kg, with designated safe working loads

Supplied in ready-to-use kits
No hot works required on-site, and lightweight so easier to handle, improving site safety


A third-party approved system
Certification worldwide SMACNA, UL, DW144, TUV, Lloyds Register, and ISO9001, offering safety, quality and durability assurances


Technical support available
Support from design to installation including CAD designs and take-offs, CPD seminars, product and installation training

Load Ratings
Gripple hangers are available in 5 load rated sizes. Each size is designed to carry a specific weight range and has a designated safe working load (SWL). The SWL gives a minimum 5:1 safety factor in a vertical plane and applies to all lengths and end fixings, unless stated otherwise.

Hanging at angles
The load rating for a Gripple hanger is based on the suspension being hung vertically. If the wire rope is suspended at an angle, an additional sideways load is applied which reduces the load capacity of the overall suspension. The net effect is shown in the table below.

Quality and approvals
Quality is everything to Gripple; not just in the products we make and the manufacturing process we employ, but the way we do business. Our compliance to BS EN ISO9001 at our Sheffield manufacturing plant is the backbone of our own quality management system achieved under the auspices of the reputable LRQA.

Key Recommendations

Failure to comply with these recommendations may result in product malfunction and possible damage to property or person and will invalidate the Gripple guarantee. Gripple products are guaranteed to be free from defects in materials and workmanship in accordance with our terms and conditions. No other warranty, whether express or implied, including any warranty of merchantability or fitness for purpose shall exist in connection with the sale or use of any Gripple product. Full technical information and installation instructions should be obtained directly from Gripple Limited, Gripple Europe or Gripple Inc., any regional Gripple office, or via the website www.gripple.com.
 

Please adhere to the following key recommendations:

Loads
Always operate the product within
its stated safe working load range.

Lifting
Do not use for lifting, either by crane or as part of a pulley system. Suspend static loads only.

Installation
Do not walk or stand on the Gripple product installation unless expressly designed for this purpose.

 

Painting
Do not paint the hanger prior
to installation. Ensure that the
hanger is in its final position prior
to applying any paint to the wire
rope assembly. Do not move the
fastener after painting.

Lubrication
Do not apply oil or any other
lubricant to the hanger or any
other part of the assembly.

Joining
Never join two ends together
in-line.

Wire Rope
Always use the fastener supplied and specified wire rope. Never use on coated wire rope or other rope. Trim any damaged filaments with the wire cutter before use.

Environment
Do not use in chlorinated or chemically corrosive atmospheres. Standard hangers are for use in dry and air conditioned environments only. Stainless steel hangers should be considered for high to saturated humid environments after validation by a competent person. Not suitable for swimming pools.

Impact
If there is potential for impact on the
wire rope suspension or suspended
services, seek advice from Gripple Ltd. Technical Services prior to installation.

Hanging at an Angle to
Vertical

Ensure that the load calculation
considers the effect of ‘side load’.
For example, at an angle of 60° to vertical the SWL is effectively reduced by 50%
Ducting: When installing included
angle teardrop hangers on round/
spiral ducting or pipes, the final
included angle of the assembly
should not exceed 60°.
Y-Fit: Legs on Y-Fit not to be
installed greater than 60°.

About Gripple

Join the revolution

In the late 1990s Gripple introduced emphatic change to the building services market with a fresh and alternative means of suspension in the construction and industrial sectors. When the original Gripple device was conceived no-one could have predicted that this would lead to the radical approach of using wire rope hangers, which have fast become the benchmark for quick and easy methods of hanging mechanical, electrical, HVAC and plumbing services. As a result of this revolution,
Gripple introduced an entirely new way of working to the industrial sector; load-rated hanger kits quickly proved perfect for ducting, cable containment, lighting, piping, false ceilings, signage and much, much more.


Gripple has since been specified and installed on numerous high profile and prestigious projects across the world including Wembley Stadium (UK), Centre Pomidou (France), Melbourne Convention Centre
(Australia), MGM City Center (USA) and Mumbai Airport (India). Not only have Gripple’s versatile products bought speed, improved site safety and best practice efficiency savings to the installation process, by striving to continually provide the best resolutions for specific needs, the company’s capabilities are now recognised, admired and trusted worldwide.

Working together from design to installation


We can offer a range of technical and engineering services to help you specify the correct Gripple system for your project. Based on the site drawings and site visits if required, we are able to review project plans and specifications to advise the type and quantity of Gripple products required to meet your exact requirements.
 

Environmentally friendly
 

The Gripple system is more environmentally friendly and up to six times faster to install than threaded rod, helping save money, and the environment. For each tonne of rod you replace with Gripple you can achieve the same results, but with as little as 50 kg of material. This also means fewer journeys, which lowers transportation costs and emissions. What’s more, as our products are lighter and easier to carry, on-site safety is also improved.
