What is a sway brace?

A sway brace is a device that is recommended for controlling vibration, absorbing shock loadings, guiding or restraining the movement of pipe resulting from thermal expansion, and bracing a pipe line against sway. They contain springs that provide a restraint force in both a tension and compression mode.
