Anti-seismic

The choice of using wood in earthquake prone parts of the world, such as Japan and parts of America, is a testament to the advantages of this material in a quake, and also in the resultant aftermath. The very lightweight construction, together with the high level of elasticity, results in a moderate oscillation of the building, which alleviates the risk of collapse. Naturally, accurate design of the house is a prerequisite mainly on the joints of the house.

The static resistance and anti-seismic resistance, a key advantage of wood, depends on:

  1. The quality and elasticity of the wood
  2. In its unique form of construction using intertwining whole trunks
  3. The technical expertise and scientific study of our specialist engineers and technicians
  4. Using specific anti-seismic techniques

As a result the building is designed to absorb the shock of the earthquake whilst minimising any collateral damage.
For these reasons wooden buildings are characterised as the ultimate anti-seismic buildings.
