Shock Transmission Units

Using its involvement and experience in the field of construction and works equipment, Freyssinet has contributed to the development of seismic devices and today offers a complete range of special products called TRANSPEC®.

These devices were originally designed to equip structures in seismic zones with the ability to absorb or limit the effects of earthquakes. Within the UK this issue is not so prominent, so the technology of Shock Transmission Units has been transferred to other uses. For example STUs can be used to protect high rise buildings subject to wind movement.

These devices can be used alone or in combination to achieve the most efficient and suitable protection for the project.
