Earthquake Force Absorption System    

Earthquake absorption system comprised of a spring system installed with or below building foundations

Overview

A plate and spring system installed below conventional footings to provide absorption of lateral and vertical (multi-directional) earthquake forces. The key benefits: minimizes financial loss (reduce damage), lowers insurance premiums for earthquake insurance policies, increases safety to inhabitants, and is relatively economical.

Primary Application of the Technology

Construction of low rise buildings.
Architecture, Civil engineering, Construction and repair.
Insurance, municipalities

The Problem Solved by the Technology

This technology is designed to solve the problem of massive forces created by earthquake or other similar forces (IE: volcano eruptions, etc.)

How the Technology Solves the Problem

Spring and plate system created and designed specifically for the building or structure to absorb lateral and vertical forces.
