Seismic Isolation structure Base Isolation Structure
Seismic Isolation Structure works by stopping the motion generated by earthquakes from reaching the building. This is done by inserting isolators, such as laminated rubber, into the foundation of the building. This form of earthquake resistance is capable of reducing the impact of an earthquake on a building to as little as 1/3 to 1/5 (less than half) of what other earthquake resistant structures will experience.
