Fingerplates give an economic solution for maintaining precast panel alignment, whilst allowing in-plane movement to limit cracking at restraints which can occur with traditional connections. They also have plenty of tolerance for quick and easy installation.
Made of zinc plated mild steel to achieve the durability requirements for exposure classification A1 (dry, internal location, not subject to airborne salts or rain wetting) in Table 3.9 of NZS301:2006(A3)
SEISMIC SAFETY STRAP
The Seismic Safety Strap was born out of a desire to improve the safety of threaded precast concrete connections. These straps offer ductility to a typically brittle detail while remaining straightforward to install. Thousands of these straps have been installed in buildings since 2004 and they performed admirably during the Canterbury Earthquake Sequence.
Designed for use in New Zealand only.
