What Are Seismic Snubbers?
Seismic snubbers are mechanical devices designed to reduce the impact of seismic forces on structures and equipment. They play a crucial role in protecting buildings, bridges, pipelines, and other critical infrastructure from damage during earthquakes or other seismic events. The primary function of seismic snubbers is to dissipate the energy generated by ground motion and prevent excessive movement or vibration in a structure.
