WHY USE WIRE?

A Proven Concept … Early in the nineteenth century, visionary engineers discovered that when steel is drawn into wires its strength could increase, meaning a flexible wrap of steel wires was stronger than a solid steel bar of the same diameter. Based on this insight they developed the forerunners of the modern wire-cable suspension bridge and today many of the world’s most famous bridges routinely rely on the superior strength ratio offered by wire-cable – They can carry heavier load-decks for longer distances at greater heights than alternative designs, and requiring fewer materials, even on the longest spans, they also bring lower construction costs.

Zip-Clip Wire Suspension and Bracing Systems

The wire used in all Zip-Clip solutions is a premium product with a tensile strength of 1960 N/mm2. It is available in load ranges from 15 kg to 500 kg with a built-in safety factor of at least 3:1. This level of performance and accountability provides the confidence to use wire in place of traditional threaded rod and today wire rope suspension solutions are being specified for an ever-increasing range of applications.

Due to their highly flexible and adaptable nature, the unique problem-solving abilities of wire systems are often called upon by architects and engineers. If you are dealing with awkward shapes, unusual angles, demanding conditions, delicate materials or rapid build-times, Zip Clip systems are able to offer innovative solutions.

WHERE CAN I USE WIRE?

Zip-Clip wire rope systems can be utilised for suspension, bracing, securing, and more.

Suspensions are typically used within the construction industry, where they are utilised as an equivalent to systems such as threaded rod.

Sectors within the construction industry where Zip-Clip supports are frequently used include:

  • • Commercial – offices, hotels, etc.
  • • Industrial – factories, warehousing, etc.
  • • Retail – supermarkets, shopping centres, cinemas, etc.
  • • Education – schools and universities
  • • Medical – hospitals

Within these sectors Zip-Clip solutions are typically used for the suspension of:

  • • Electrical containment trays, baskets or ladders
  • • Lighting
  • • HVAC and mechanical services
  • • Acoustic or radiant heating panels
  • • Signage, screens and partitions.

Zip-Clip solutions can, however, also be used for numerous other applications that lend themselves to using wire rope, one key application being bracing, for example the bracing of services in seismically affected regions.

As long as Zip-Clip systems are utilised within their safe working load range, applications are as varied as your imagination.

Zip-Clip solutions give you the freedom to take control. They are the flexible, strong, stylish, high-spec. suspension solution of today.

If you automatically think of using rigid threaded bars to solve your HVAC, electrical, mechanical and signage suspension needs, you may want to think again and look at all the advantages offered by wire.

The unique Zip Clip system, based on simple yet highly effective locking mechanisms, is easier to handle, quicker and simpler to install and brings far more versatility.

Moving forward to an exciting future

Moving forward to an exciting future

Moving Forward … Zip-Clip are pleased to announce that after making some office changes in order to meet government social distancing rules all our staff are now back in at our UK Head Quarters.

The past few months have challenged all businesses and Zip-Clip moved quickly to ensure continuity with our suppliers and customers alike. We were particularly pleased to be able to maintain manufacturing processes during lockdown allowing us to fully support customers involved in the building and fit out of the Nightingale Hospitals and other key projects that were undertaken during that time.

Looking forward, Matthew Clay-Michael, MD of Zip-Clip and Steve Goldsworthy, CEO, are greatly honoured that Jon Forster recently joined the team as FD and his wealth of knowledge and experience are sure to further assist the board in growing the group both domestically and overseas.

Contra to recent unfounded rumours Zip-Clip will continue to be managed and owned by Matthew and Steve and both are very much looking forward to the next exciting phase of growth and the launch of new patented products that will be coming to market this year and beyond.

The photograph above shows the Zip-Clip management team alongside the Queens Award for Export, an accomplishment we are extremely proud of and a true indication of our dedication to further develop all aspects of our overseas business. Regrettably our management team in Australia were unable to attend at this time but we look forward to getting the whole team together again soon.
