How Do Seismic Isolation Devices Work?
Seismic isolation and damper devices work in a similar way as a car suspension; as a car can travel over rough ground without jostling its occupants, seismic isolators provide extra protection for freestanding HVAC and chiller units. Seismic dampers can also help control seismic damage in buildings by providing shock absorption through lead-based devices. Kinetic energy is converted into heat energy, preventing the unit or equipment from absorbing the kinetic energy and sustaining damage. Our technology combines techniques to provide flexible surfaces; this dissipates energy from seismic activity and gives your units space to move. Rigid surfaces tend to break and collapse under seismic pressure; with our help, your units will be protected from both vertical and horizontal movement.
Our seismic isolation stands deliver unparalleled seismic protection for HVAC and chiller units of all types and sizes.
