Crenlo, a Dover company (NYSE:DOV), announces the addition of the Emcor 10-Series IBC Tie-Down Kit to their lineup of accessories for Emcor enclosures. Built to secure the Emcor 10-series cabinet to the floor, the IBC Kit meets life safety requirements for protecting building occupants from falling objects in the event of an earthquake as outlined in the International Building Code.
The kit contains four frame spacers and four seismic brackets that require the appropriate concrete anchoring hardware to meet local codes as determined by a building engineer. Crenlo’s engineers can work directly with customers and/or their engineers to provide site-specific installation recommendations.
There are two standards by which enclosures are deemed seismic — Telcordia Technologies GR-63-CORE Network Building Systems (NEBS) and the International Building Code (IBC). For years, Crenlo has offered a Telcordia-compliant seismic rack tested to the most stringent, Zone 4 criteria.
