GPseismic ANCHOR CHANNEL
ANCHORING SYSTEMS FOR PRECAST CONCRETE PANELS
GPseismic connection guarantees the sliding of the concrete components of the construction in reaction to the shifts caused by earthquake.
The anchoring system is inspired by the study of the effects of the Italian earthquake in Emilia Romagna region in 2012, when precast concrete beams were displaced from their original position by more than 20 centimeters. The GPseismic anchoring system allows the sliding in two directions and allows the beams to re-set respect the vertical panels. The GPseismic fixing system has been studied with dynamic tests and has been subjected to the Norcia 2016 earthquake in dedicated laboratory tests. GPseismic did not broke down.
Replace the screwed components to restore the joint efficiency after the earthquake.
HOW TO INSTALL GPseismic ANCHOR CHANNELS?
If you need to install GPseismic on an existing concrete beam, or if the GPseismic channel is in a position that cannot be used for anchoring, you can use dedicated post-installable channel.
It includes a plate measuring 400x120x10 mm and it can be installed using mechanical plugs/dowels.
