We Love Visitors!

One of the most interesting jobs in the New York area is 61 Bond Street in Brooklyn. The building itself is being constructed directly over subway lines, so the whole structure has to be isolated and the mechanical systems in the interconnected piping pose problems as well. The Structural Engineering firm handling the building isolation…

Mason SLFADA and Equipment certification

We developed our Z-1011 seismic snubber in 1971 following the San Fernando earthquake that hit in February. The Engineering community was shocked at the damage to the building systems and equipment despite the relatively low seismic forces. It was obvious that the static approach to seismic design was inadequate and we saw the need to…

More BIG SLR Mounts

Our engineering department and shop pulled another rabbit out of the hat and completed an order for 24 pieces of 3″ deflection SLRJs in less than four weeks, which really meant three, because we needed an extra week to get the mounts to and from our galvanizer way over in New Jersey! The mounts will…
