Structural Isolation / Foundation Isolation

There is a growing interest in structural vibration isolation systems to address vibration and structure-borne noise emanating from surrounding environments. Sophisticated foundation systems can be employed to support entire buildings, portions of buildings, and rail trackbeds for the purpose of mitigating vibrations and structure-borne noises that would otherwise interfere with work environments, sensitive equipment, residential settings, and entertainment venues.

TVS offers various system types including springs, elastomeric bearings, and combinations of springs and elastomeric bearings to protect buildings.

System design takes into consideration issues such as natural frequency, static and dynamic load conditions, de-bonding (in cases where elastomeric bearings are employed), and creep. These issues need to be addressed in the early design stages, typically following the filing of an environmental impact report by a qualified vibration consultant.
