ADF meets the most stringent earthquake requirements

Earth scientists can predict natural disasters and severe weather, but we can never predict how extensive the damage will be. Once the disaster strikes it is crucial that the infrastructure stays up and running. To prove the robustness of the ADF P300 series, we have performed earthquake certification in terms of vibration testing.

We are very proud that our complete range of ADF P300, including UL systems, has successfully completed the shake table testing according to the requirements of the ICC-ES AC156, IBC 2018, and CBC 2019. By meeting the requirements, we can be confident that our ADFs Meet the most stringent earthquake requirements according to GR63 Core (zone 4, the most demanding class).

This is also an important step in our expansion in North America and the launch of our new production site in Atlanta, Georgia, and it is evident that our ADFs meet the OSHPD Seismic Standards which is essential for public infrastructure such as Utilities, Hospitals, Malls, Commercial Buildings, as well as HVAC manufacturers.

How the test was performed:

The cabinets were tested on a hydraulic shake table rig and the units were subjected to displacement in horizontal and vertical orientation. The test signal was a pre-recorded waveform containing the required spectrum, including acceleration forces exceeding 5g. Each unit was subjected to this spectrum in four directions (back/forth, sideways, up down, and horizontal/diagonal). The mechanical resonances of the cabinets were measured prior to and after each vibration test to ensure the integrity of the cabinet; the units were also inspected and operated normally after the test.
