Omega Flex tubing earns seismic certification

February 23, 2022 By    

The International Code Council Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) issued seismic certification for Omega Flex’s TracPipe CounterStrike, MediTrac and DoubleTrac corrugated tubing products, based on the Acceptance Criteria AC-156 for nonstructural building components. The TracPipe CounterStrike tubing is designed for fuel gases, including propane. For buildings in any seismic zone, the ICC-ES certification simplifies the requirements for pipe supports and seismic bracing of these piping systems. The three products can eliminate all intermediate piping system joints that have caused leakage after earthquakes; reduce installation time; reduce the seismic bracing demand; and lower the final system cost, according to the company. Installation of Omega Flex flexible piping can also contribute to the functional recovery and resiliency of buildings by reducing the downtime after an earthquake, says the company.
