Why should structural engineers care about seismic restraint? This is a commonly asked question with a simple answer. The loads generated do due to restraining a piece of equipment or utility can greatly impact the structure. The structure itself needs to be designed with the intention of equipment and utilities being rigidly attached too them. Currently, lightweight construction is the most common practice utilized for this application. These types of buildings are inexpensive to build but may not be strong enough to withstand the seismic forces acting on it. Kinetics Noise Control will work with the design team and the construction team to ensure your seismic restraint project runs smoothly. Kinetics Noise Control has developed a seismic restraint system that will allow owners to meet the building code requirement while spending as little money and time as possible on seismic restraint.
