3D Isolation System that meets IEEE 693 Code Requirements
Seismic Protection for Applications that require Acceleration Reduction Horizontally and Vertically
Seismic isolation is typically engineered to protect against horizontal accelerations during a seismic event. In some applications significant vertical accelerations are present as well. DIS developed a product which provides isolation from damaging accelerations in both horizontal (X,Y) and vertical (Z) directions. The 3D isolation system uses a series of quided bearings, vertical and horizontal springs and dampers to achieve superior performance during a seismic event. 3D isolation system dimensions and capacities are custom designed by DIS team of seismic design experts. DIS developed 3D isolation platforms to reduce forces and accelerations transmitted into the equipment to be within IEEE 693 high performance code requirements.
