The New Year has begun with a blunt reminder of what Mother Nature is capable of. All at TRACKLOK® are hoping this jolt to the frayed nerves of our friends in Christchurch passes quickly.
Let’s recap we’re we are at and how we got here, especially after the weekend’s direct reminder of the need to build it better:
As a result of extensive damage to buildings and business continuity from seismic events in Christchurch and Seddon – Insurance Companies, The Government, Regulators, Industry and Designers, posed this question:
How do we secure under ceiling partition walls and glazing lines to soffit over without interfering with the two-way grid?
To ensure compliance to the building code in particular B1 Structure, the objective of the provision being to:
- Safeguard people from injury caused by structural failure.
- Safeguard people from loss of amenity caused by structural behavior, and
- Protect other property from physical damage caused by structural failure.
The solution: TRACKLOK® - designed and extensively tested, both in the lab and out in the real world.
Need to secure under ceiling partition walls and glazing lines? – TRACKLOK®
Need to account for inter story drift? – TRACKLOK®
Need to account for horizontal and vertical deflection? – TRACKLOK®
Need to account for in line deflection? – TRACKLOK®
Need to ensure building code compliance – TRACKLOK®
So, unless you require a specifically engineered design, then specify and install TRACKLOK® - together we can build it better.
