Abstract:
A bracket for use in a seismic cable sway bracing system to attach a bracing cable to a support structure or to an object to be braced is disclosed. The bracket includes a planar base having a base aperture therethrough, and at least one planar arm integrally formed with and extending from the planar base. The at least one planar arm being angled upwardly relative to the planar base and having an arm aperture therethrough. The bracket is configured so that a ratio of a first distance to a second distance is about 1:1.2 or greater, the first distance being defined from a center of the base aperture to an edge of the planar base opposite the at least one planar arm in a pre-angled arrangement, and the second distance being defined from the center of the base aperture to a center of the arm aperture in the pre-angled arrangement.
