SAFE+ Model A
■mechanical damping link
SAFE+ Model A is a CE marked combined anti-seismic device classified as a non-linear NLD behavior device according to EN 15129/2009 standard.
For limited displacements, SAFE+ Model A works as a “mechanical fuse” and, subsequently and up to 20 mm, the device acts as a “hysteretic dissipator”. In addition to this deformation, and to avoid loss of support, the function of “damping mechanical link” intervenes through the presence of an elastic device that attenuates the transfer of seismic violence from the beams to the pillars.
