Engineered earthquake strengthening system

Supplier:
Rockcote

The Seismoloc GRC strengthening system from Resene Construction Systems offers a durable and economic alternative to traditional earthquake strengthening methods.

Seismoloc GRC system utilises a proprietary engineered, fibre reinforced plaster, specially formulated acrylic binding resin and a high-tensile strength fibreglass mesh to provide a plaster that reinforces existing brick and masonry walls to resist earthquake loads.

The concept of ductility is a key principle in seismic-resistant design, a focus used when engineering the Seismoloc GRC system. In general terms, ductility is the ability of a structural member to continue to resist loads even after initial failure (or yield) and thus avoid collapse.

The Seismoloc GRC plaster is engineered to provide a strong bond to the surface of a masonry wall, while the 300gsm Velocity fibreglass reinforcing provides the tensile strength to resist in-plane shear loads and face loads on brick and masonry walls. Benefits include: providing elasticity while still having high yield stress under earthquake loads; improving ductility to structural members, lessening the chance of the building collapsing, and incorporating our premium Velocity alkali-resistant fibreglass which has an additional protective coating ensuring maximum reinforcement without deterioration.

Foundation construction is also often avoided, there is minimal intrusion to existing floor space, and construction time is reduced.
