Seismic Floor Systems
Seismic floor systems are floors designed to isolate the non structural contents of a building from the violent motions of an earthquake or a blast wave. The floors are created with a product called EQX Seismic Floor Systems.
The System consists of two sliding plates less than 4 mm. thick. The plates are arranged in an array of movable top plates and fixed bottom plates. In an earthquake the relative motion between the top and bottom plates isolates objects on top of the system from the earthquake acceleration.
