BUILDING ISOLATION

BUILDING ISOLATION Noise and vibration isolators are used to prevent the downward transmission of vibration from a machine to a structure, the upward transfer from the structure to a sensitive machine or to isolate a complete building from ground vibration. Ground vibration may be generated by above ground or under ground passenger or freight trains,…

ARCHITECTURAL ENGINEERING

ARCHITECTURAL ENGINEERING We have been floating floors, resiliently suspending ceilings and isolating walls for close to 45 years. The need for this acoustical reinforcement has been well established in textbooks, sales literature and acoustical engineering recommendations. Therefore, we thought it would be helpful to offer a handbook of specific methods and suggested specifications rather than…

HVAC ENGINEERING

HVAC ENGINEERING In 1962 we introduced our first “HVAC ENGINEERING SPECIFICATION.” While the 1962 approach was very well received and filled a void, it was made up of many individual specifications rather than presented in an organized format.It had no meaningful minimum static deflection guide and engineers found it hard to work with. In 1965…
