As best I can tell there's no listed bracing method for longitudinal seismic bracing for CPVC. Traditionally we've addressed this by placing a tee with a short pipe stub perpendicular to a main and braced that perpendicular pipe with a "lateral" brace, which acts longitudinally on the main. The downside to this is that it's not concentric to the main, but it's pretty close.
Is there a better way to brace CPVC pipe longitudinally?
