SFC Minimizes Building Infrastructure Damage

Observations made from seismic events have shown that an improperly attached light fixture can detach from the ceiling grid and swing wildly like a wrecking ball while supported by the backup slack wires.

This "wrecking ball" can ram other ceiling objects such as sprinklers, ceiling mounted fixtures and ceiling tiles with sufficient force to cause damage. The result have led to flying objects falling from ceilings and causing harm or injuring occupants.

Broken sprinklers have been known to cause extensive water damage to the building.

The SFC's unified ceiling module design will ensure that the light fixture and the supporting ceiling grid will respond to the earthquake in unison. As a result, the possibility of these kinds of building infrastructure damages caused by earthquakes would be minimized.

The lighting fixture is suspended to the ceiling grid by Seismic Fixture Clamps (SFC) at all four corners to ensure that it is earthquake safe.
