GPseismic anchor channels
The GPSeismic anchorage system permits anchorage of prefabricated structures in areas subject to seismic action.
GPSeismic guarantees that the components of the concrete construction can shift in relation to one another in reaction to the loads and shifts of an earthquake.
The anchorage system is inspired by the study of the effects of the earthquake in Emilia in 2012, when prefabricated concrete girders were shifted from their original position by several centimetres. The GPseismic anchorage system permits movement in two directions and allows the girder to take on a different position from the vertical panel. The GPseismic fixing system has been studied with static tests and cyclic tests to determine its real behaviour.
