Armstrong has developed the proprietary RX system to allow for suspended ceilings to move and dissipate seismic forces.
This system minimises potential damage to the interior components in the event of buildings moving.
Armstrong has engaged KCL Engineering Services to design a seismic
guide able to determine various bracing solutions in accordance
with NZS1170 Part5 and AS/NZS 2785 2000.
An excel version of our newly launched Seismic Design Guide for New
Zealand is available, which assists to determine the most appropriate
bracing solutions for a particular ceiling (available from www.forman.co.nz).
