The industry standard solutions may not always be applicable in particular situations and custom engineering solutions must be determined, manufactured and installed to meet various requirements. These may include ensuring adequate strength to withstand forces from extreme events as well as providing effective vibration and noise control during normal operation.
Our engineering team is experienced in customising seismic bracing, seismic restraint, supports, attachments and vibration control solutions that help meet the project criteria and keep non-structural building components functioning during and after major weather/seismic events.
seismic bracing calculations
The building code defines the various requirements and minimum standard for structures and associated non-structural components to withstand loads from natural events, such as earthquakes.
Our engineering team uses these codes and other industry guidelines to determine lateral and vertical design forces on non-structural building system components.
Mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems in buildings need to be braced to prevent excessive movement during earthquakes, in accordance with the Building Code. Certain systems under specific weights and sizes may be exempt from bracing, but navigating the various rules can be challenging.
Our seismic engineering team is intimately familiar with industry standard guidelines and can produce mark-up drawings that indicate bracing locations to ensure code compliance.
Mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems inside buildings create vibrations which can affect sensitive equipment and cause structure-borne noise.
Eurofast does vibration isolation design, analysing equipment installations and selecting appropriate vibration and isolation products to effectively meet background noise and vibration criteria.
Eurofast provides onsite engineering and management services for our clients.
Our services range from education of installation staff to project inspections and certification.
Our engineers are seismic code experts who are looking to help you achieve code compliance and proper system/equipment isolation, with the least amount of labour and extra cost possible.
