Straddling Pendulum Technology.
- Straddling Pendulum technology cost less and is not complex.
- It has a simple form factor and the engineering needed to deploy is straight forward.
- It is usually made of simple plate steel, but other materials will work as well.
- This is the only device where you can predetermine the period of motion.
- This is the only device where you can protect from any ground displacement .
- It will handle larger ground displacements, more than any prior device.
- It will absorb and dissipate more seismic energy, more than any prior device.
- It has more options for motion damping, more than any prior device.
- It has a very long life span and requires very little maintenance.
- It will react in 360 degrees of horizontal ground motion and vertical motion.
- Constant performance in extreme heat or cold.
- It can be engineered to act as a Tuned-Mass Damper.
