Trains, HGV’s, cars, heavy machinery and equipment are all sources of vibration in buildings and structures. Failure to consider these factors in building design and engineering may have a serious impact on the building structure, owners and occupants.
Vibration isolation of buildings and structures from ground borne vibration is a complex task. There are a range of different solutions, depending on the nature, intensity and source of vibration. When this information has been determined a solution can be designed to successfully mitigate the effect of these vibrations.
Megamat are manufactured from fibers and granules of SBR and EPDM rubber. These panels produce excellent vibration mitigation and insulation performance.
They are ideal as a structural bearing in foundations for buildings subject to light to medium loadings.
|Static range of use (static loads)||0.07 N/mm2||5%|
|Operating load range (static plus dynamic loads)||0.07 – 0.70 N/mm2||5% – 30%|
|Load peaks (short term, infrequent loads)||2.00 N/mm2||50%|
