HOW TO ANCHOR A BASE PLATE IN SEISMIC AREAS
Fastening systems for earthquake zones
Earthquakes are much more common than we realize, happening every day all over the world.
Not only can they bring a great cost of life, but they can also do great damage to buildings and the economy.
All this can be limited by good seismic construction design and specification.
It’s important to include seismic design for both non-structural and structural elements of a building, as research shows that non-structural systems suffer the largest damage in commercial buildings during an earthquake.
