ISO-Base™ Seismic Isolation

Protecting Over $30 Billion Dollars of Assets

Seismic base-isolation technology is the most effective way to protect your mission-critical and expensive electronic equipment.

ISO-Base™ Seismic Isolation Platforms are used in all types of computer rooms for seismic mitigation of server cabinets, mainframes, electronic enclosures, and many other types of critical equipment.  It has also been used to prevent other kinds of shock and vibration, besides seismic, from damaging computer equipment.

The ISO-Base™ Seismic Isolation Platform is virtually maintenance free and provides seismic mitigation that is far superior to traditional methods such as bolting to the sub-floor or stiffening of the cabinet frames.

Isolation Is The Answer

ISO-Base™ utilizes patented Ball-N-Cone™ Isolators consisting of two conical Stainless Steel dishes sandwiched over a steel ball bearing.  This unique design allows the ISO-Base™ to roll smoothly and evenly while accepting input ground accelerations from any direction.

Using gravity as a restoring force, the bearings inside the ISO-Base™ planks re-center themselves after an earthquake as the shaking decreases.  The bearings also function as a white-noise filter virtually eliminating the transfer of seismic vibrations into sensitive componentry.

Modular Open Frame DesignISO_Module_Lg

The unique design of ISO-Base™ Seismic Platforms allows for a multitude of design and layout options.

Each plank assembly includes a top and bottom platform with (2) Ball-N-Cone™ Isolators. Planks are connected with tubing into a front channel.

This front load feature makes assembly easy, and allows additional planks to be added as your needs change. Connector lengths are made to fit the width of the item being protected.

Planks are re-usable and re-configurable, new connector sizes can be easily accommodated.

The open frame design allows for proper air circulation and allows a space for cable management through a raised floor.

Zero Downtime

If all other peripheral systems, such as power, stay up and running, your isolated equipment can and will continue to operate and process data right on through a major earthquake.
