To complement the clean and aesthetic lines of lighting luminaires – now prevalent and highly visible in high-tech minimalist buildings – Gripple has come up with an equally sophisticated and attractive suspension solution – the Squeezelock.

Launched by the inventor of revolutionary suspension systems with numerous functional benefits, the new Squeezelock – a sleek, streamlined ‘barrel’ with a bright plated finish – is designed to suspend all lighting and signage accurately, with a 5:1 safety factor and a 15kg load rating.

The Squeezelock’s finger-friendly adjustment feature on its side allows easy, one-handed squeeze movement up or down wire rope, with no tool required.

Squeezelocks come as part of ready-to-use kits also comprising 1.50mm shiny galvanized wire rope in lengths up to 10m and a ceiling fixing chosen from nine options, including a loop, snap hook and eyelet. Standard kits can be screwed onto T-Bar twist clips or directly into soffits.

The unit’s wire exit points enable central, single side, and even dual fixing for balance when the Gripple Y-Fit is used. A hook can also be screwed into the Squeezelock’s base for secure signage suspension.

This year Sheffield-based Gripple secured a fourth Queen’s Award for Enterprise – the company’s second time for innovation!
