Power management company Eaton announced that its B-Line division has updated its easy-to-use TOLBrace™ seismic bracing software for engineered fire sprinkler applications. With a new language selection tool for both English and Spanish, TOLBrace 8.0 offers a step-by-step approach to seismic bracing, including a project bill of materials generator and many other valuable features for fire sprinkler systems.
Available for engineers, designers, plan reviewers and Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJs), the TOLBrace 8.0 software version helps to quickly and easily perform zone of influence calculations per National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 13 guidelines, Uniform Building Code (UBC) and International Building Code (IBC). It also contains the latest OSHPD Approved loads, for both the OPA-0030-10 and OPM-0052-13.
TOLBrace 8.0 software also includes a unique space calculation feature, allowing users to calculate the maximum allowable spacing and alerting them if they have improperly spaced sway brace assemblies due to load capacity or allowable pipe deflection per NFPA 13.
