Secure Seismic Solutions
Let us help you create a physically secure environment
Bergvik has the ability to provide seismic restraint systems in compliance with the US Federal Government and international specifications. We also have the ability to determine seismic demand due to ground motions at a given facility location and to design a raised floor or seismic restraint support for those ground motions. We also have the ability to determine the shaking due to an earthquake, to help with the seismic demands for the fragility of the Server Rack or Electrical equipment mounted on Bergvik's Iso Floor Seismic design, or Cabinet specific Seismic bracing frame.
Steps for Creating a Safe & Secure environment
Provide the physical address of the project. From that information, we will get the exact site coordinates and create a ground motion summary report for the specific site location.
The vertical ground motion value can in general be assumed as 2/3 of the horizontal ground motion, but to be more precise we use the FEMA P-750 guidance on how to determine the Horizontal/Vertical ratios depending on fault proximity. This is very important.
Additional information needed to create a dynamic load calculation report are:
- Height of raised access floor
- Specific foot print and static load of each equipment cabinet
- Average center of gravity for equipment cabinets, if available
- Number of cabinets or total weight of equipment on the floor
Based on the above information and the specified max horizontal deflection of the raised floor, a dynamic load calculation will be provided to verify the Iso Floor Seismic design performance for your review and approval.
Iso Floor Seismic
Bergvik will supply it's Iso Floor raised floor system for 8 Train Power Sub stations in Panama City.
