This fastening system was designed for heavy countertop equipment used in laboratories. It is not uncommon for such lab equipment to weigh up to 200 pounds. Equipment such as centrifuges have heavy spinning masses inside them that can go out of control during an earthquake, posing a potential physical and biological threat to personnel. StrapTRAC is designed to keep the equipment from falling off counters during seismic shaking. If there is a wall or backsplash behind the item to be fastened, we recommend the 4220 or 4310 kit of 2 fasteners as shown in picture A. If there is no wall or backsplash, then we recommend 4 fasteners (2 kits of 4220 or 4310) installed in a crisscross pattern as shown in picture B. This will help restrain the equipment in both forward and backward motion.
Each Kit Contains:
2 (48") straps using a steel plate with 3M adhesive
2 steel buckles
2 wood stud screws
2 surface prep pads
