SIMPLE TO SPECIFY & DESIGN
The design, engineering and specification process is simple with DonoBrace®.
Structural engineers simply select and place the specific sized DonoBrace® component into structural drawings using compatible drafting software.
SUPERIOR QUALITY & DYNAMICALLY TESTED
DonoBrace® is dynamically tested for Seismic Activity, along with for Hydrogen Embrittlement.
DonoBrace® is manufactured with machined nuts and bolts for reliability. All Endplates are plasma cut, induction heated and pressed for performance.
EASY & RAPID INSTALLATION
DonoBrace® is designed for simple and efficient installation. The steel bracing endplates allow for less sophisticated coupling components, dramatically decreasing installation time.
DonoBrace® is easily prefabricated Offsite or Onsite. Installing DonoBrace® eliminates rework and downtime and ensures a transparent onsite inspection process.
GREATER CAPACITY & LESS WEIGHT
DonoBrace® is the highest capacity tension rod system in the market, all while weighing a fraction of the other bracing options.
TRANSPARENT ONSITE INSPECTIONS
Each coupler comes standard with two inspection holes for quick and simple verification that both rods are fully engaged.
STANDARDIZED STOCK COMPONENTS
From the machined nuts and washers to the couplers, high tensile rod, and end plates, all parts are standardized for project flexibility.
Tried & Tested
At DonoBrace® we pride ourselves on our superior performance and comprehensive testing. To ensure the correct calculated capacities are achieved, it is imperative that DonoBrace® is used as a completed supplied system. No material substitutions are to be made without specific written authority.
