VISCMA Publishes Paper Online On IBC Code

The Vibration Isolation and Seismic Control Manufacturers Association (VISCMA) has published a paper online on "Understanding the 2000 IBC Code on Architectural Components and Equipment Restraint."

The intent of this document is to offer some simplified guidance to understanding the 2000 IBC Code and how it applies to nonstructural components. The article is available on the VISCMA Web site at under "Articles of Interest."

VISCMA is a nonprofit association representing the manufacturers of seismic restraint, vibration isolation, and noise control equipment. The primary objectives of the organization are to educate the construction industry on the proper use and application of vibration isolation and seismic restraint and to develop standards to improve the industry.

In partnership with FEMA and ASCE, VISCMA currently publishes three Seismic Installation and Inspection Manuals designed to assist field personnel. The association office is located at 994 Old Eagle School Road, Suite 1019, Wayne, PA 19087-1866.
