INDUSTRIAL WAREHOUSE, VICENZA ITALY
Installing a seismic proof sprinkler system
A large industrial warehouse needed to install sprinklers, which posed several challenges.
It was very large warehouse with a surface of more than 3,000 m2.
The modular support system needed to be seismic proof and the base material was very thin, making it difficult to attach the support system.
OUR HILTI SOLUTION
We worked closely with the contractor, Idrotermotre who, chose our Hilti MQS modular support system for the project. It’s extremely flexible, easy to assemble and designed to withstand the effects of earthquakes.
The modular support system had to fit into tight spaces and also encountered many obstacles due to the shape of the roof beams.
This meant that many decisions had to be taken onsite, regarding the arrangement of the pipes and where to fasten the supports. Our Hilti technical team (sales engineer and technical department) worked with the contractor throughout the installation.
We defined all the modular support systems needed, carried out multiple inspections and provided technical advice and support to the contractors during installation.
This helped to install the support system quickly, safely and correctly.
The contractor also used a range of anchors including Hilti HST expansion anchors for seismic loads, Hilti HUS3 screw anchors for shallow base materials and Hilti HIT-HY 270 chemical anchor for hollow base materials.
