Tectonus seismic hold downs
tECTONUS TANK HOLDS DOWNS
State of the art devices
The Tectonus tank hold device (RSFD) is a self-centring , damage-free anchorage system that offers superior seismic protections for storage tanks and assets.
Earthquakes can cause significant damage to tanks during the initial event and further during aftershocks. If sacrificial components or complete replacement is required between events, the tanks are at increased risk. Download Catalogue
Advantages that make the difference
Devices are designed to withstand earthquakes and aftershocks without repair or replacement
"R" Factor of 1.0 or Higher
With exceptional damping, the Tectonus devices can provide significant increase to the R factor
Devices can be installed on new or existing tanks
The Tectonus hold down devices does NOT require tank thickness to be increased
Each Tectonus device is performance tested to ensure it performs to its required specification.
Foundation costs may be less than usual when choosing to implement the Tectonus hold downs
