Vibration and Seismic Technologies (VST) Announces Exclusive Licensing Agreement to Manufacture Seismic Cable Bracing Product Line
ST. LOUIS, MO, September 16, 2015 – Vibration and Seismic Technologies (VST) has been awarded an exclusive license to manufacture and market the Seismic Wire Rope/Cable™ Bracing products previously manufactured under license by Loos & Co. The product line is used to brace a range of non-structural building components, including mechanical/HVAC and plumbing products, and is the only cable bracing line that meets all current building codes and standards.
Known for its patented cable bracing system featuring color-coded cable and innovative hardware components such as the Universal Restraint Clip and No Pry Clip, the product line was developed by Dan Duggan, Sr. and Mike Werner of Duggan-Werner, Inc., which has granted the exclusive license to VST. In addition to offering the Seismic Wire Rope/Cable™ Bracing product line and associated tools, VST also offers complete seismic engineering services for mechanical, electrical and plumbing construction projects.
“I’m very excited about what VST brings to the table, both from a product development and customer support standpoint,” said Dan Duggan, Sr., president of Duggan-Werner, Inc. and a partner in VST. “Customers will immediately see improvements to the product line, and will now have access to valuable engineering services not offered by the previous manufacturer.”
All VST seismic bracing products are UL listed and comply with the International Building Code and its referenced standards, including ASCE 19-10, which prohibits the use of cable clips and wedge type end fittings that can loosen and damage the cable over time.
According to VST, the company’s cable bracing system can save mechanical and plumbing contractors time, money and effort compared to bracing with strut or pipe. And because the cable weighs only a small fraction of strut or pipe, the system can also drastically reduce shipping costs.
VST will sell its Seismic Wire Rope/Cable™ Bracing products through select original equipment manufacturers, as well as through manufacturer’s representatives and distributors. The company is currently seeking sales reps and distributors in several areas. For more information, call 844-734-7642 or visit vstseismic.com.
