The nature of structural isolation and foundation isolation requires a planned and technical approach to identify the most appropriate solution for an individual project. Repeated exposure to ground borne vibration forces can have a detrimental impact on building support structures. It is necessary therefore to reduce energy dissipation transfer by directly isolating a structure. Projects must be consulted on an individual basis in order that the expected level of vibration can be calculated. However, as a rule, structural isolation uses soft absorptive materials to reduce the transmission of vibrations into a structure.
