Hangers & Supports
ISAT is based on extensive field experience in the seismic bracing of non-structural utility systems suspended from the tension zone of overhead decks or from other supporting structures. Design professionals and contractors deriving the most benefit from ISAT designs will be those involved with new or remedial construction associated with the Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP) trades.

The relevant utility components encompassed within the manual include:

Electrical Conduit
Electrical Cable Trays and Bus Duct
Vibration Isolated Systems
Cable Tray & Bus Duct
Conduit Racking
Hangers & Supports

Whether performing work within a California hospital or within general commercial, institutional or industrial construction, the user will find that ISAT's engineered installation details encompass a range of efficient seismic bracing options with specific attention to ease of installation within congested areas - a problem common to most projects on which seismic bracing is required.

ISAT bracing details provide the option of utilizing several forms of seismic restraint brace arm elements including:
12 gage channel
Tube steel
Aircraft cable
Hanging wire

OSHPD Compliance
The ISAT Applications and Design Manual complies with the requirements of the 2007 California Building Code (CBC), Title 24, Volume 2, Chapter 16A for hospitals under the jurisdiction of the California Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD). The OSHPD assigned “Fixed Equipment Anchorage? approval review number for the ISAT Applications and Design Manual is OPA-0485-07.

Code exclusions defined within ISAT delineating certain utilities that are not required to be seismically restrained are those exclusions created and allowed by OSPHD. When used for construction under other codes, users are advised to confirm the allowed exclusions.
