CE Certification to EN15129 Anti-seismic devices

This CE Mark certificate attests that all provisions concerning the assessment and verification of consistency of performance described in the standard EN1529:2009 are achieved. The EN 15129 covers the design, manufacturing, testing and validation of the seismic hardware, i.e. the whole of the mechanical devices used in seismic engineering.

Damptech Dampers are certified to the standard EN 15129, Anti-seismic devices, in compliance with Regulation (EU) 305/2011 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 9 March 2011 (the Constructions Products Regulation or CPR).

The European Committee for Standardization (CEN) officially created a Technical Committee CEN-TC 340: Anti-seismic Devices in 1993.  The scope of the TC was the standardization of devices for use in structures erected in seismic areas and designed in accordance with EUROCODE 8: Design of Structures for Earthquake Resistance, with the aim of modifying their response to the seismic action. This European Standard, named EN 15129, specifies functional requirements and general design rules thereof, material characteristics, manufacturing and testing requirements, as well as acceptance, installation and maintenance criteria of all the types of seismic devices.
