State of the Art
Earthquake Protection

Innovative seismic resilient joints that allow structures to return to their original position.

Self centering joints for structures

Tectonus joints provide superior protection against earthquakes and aftershocks.

Tectonus patented RSFJ technology

What our seismic joint does

Effectively dissipates earthquake energy 
+

The RSFJ joint significantly reduces the seismic load on the structure through friction damping and thus drastically improves the structures resilience to earthquakes.

Self-centers itself, and therefore the building. Each time.
+

RSFJ technology has an inherent self centering capacity and therefore restores the structure to its original position after each seismic event.

Continued protection after earthquake. Ready for the next aftershock.
+

Following a seismic event, the RSFJ effectively "resets" itself and is ready for any aftershocks that may occur. This ensures the building is protected during and after each seismic event.

Does not require post event maintenance
+

No element of the RSFJ requires periodic service or post event maintenance. This means the building does not have to close down and have post component replacement.

Feature Project

Nelson Airport Terminal

Tectonus are proud to be supplying the RSFJ technology for the new Nelson Airport Terminal currently under construction. The Terminal, designed by Studio Pacific Architecture features tall LVL columns which RSFJs has been designed to seemlessly integrate to.
