Outline

The first seismic damper for wooden houses in the world, made by using friction phenomenon called "metal flow". It cuts 85% (maximum) shaking by changing seismic energy into thermal energy with friction caused by earthquake. Because it uses the friction between metals, it demonstrates stable dumping performance without getting affected by temperature change and velocity change of shaking. In addition, it is all made by metals, which enables to last its durability and fire-proof function for over 60 years. Then we are receiving certification by Minister of land, transportation.
