The problem of undesirable noise and vibration can result in risk to building owners along with complaints from building occupants. Complaints erode relationships and take up time and energy. Finding a solution to keep occupants happy, save time and money makes good sense. Our vibration isolation solutions do just this. By controlling the negative impact from mechanical sources in the built environment, sound-blocking and restraint is achieved. This brings down the risk to building owners.
We are proud to be the Western Canadian representative for Mason Industries for over 34 years. Much of our success in the fields of noise, vibration and seismic control is due to our direct relationship with Mason. Consultants and architects throughout the world specify Mason products because of their high quality and reliability. The underlying engineering support that Mason provides supports their products success.
From an engineering perspective, we calculate the higher level seismic anchorage requirements associated with isolated, floating systems. We work with critical building component suppliers, such as Emergency Generator and Power Transformer, and O.E.M.s.
Our approach is two-fold. We start by calculating the anchorage to meet or exceed post disaster seismic code requirements. We then send out the base equipment data and our calculations to an Independent Structural Engineer.
We work with engineers who specialize in seismic restraint or operational and function building components (OFCs). These engineering specialists review and provide certification under seal.
In most cases, we will run our calculations based on an earlier, more conservative code. The independent engineer runs the calculations on the most current code. This provides an important cross-check for us, the independent engineer and the building owner and occupants.
We carry a wide range of vibration isolation systems. The list below outlines the main categories of vibration isolation products that we offer. To view more product details in each category click on the link.
These acoustical products work to greatly reduce undesirable noise in the built environment. This is done in a number of ways. Either sounds and vibrations are contained within a space or a space is isolated from an outside unwanted noise.
Our Architectural Acoustic Product team are available to help you determine the best solution. Whatever approach is best for your environment, architectural soundproofing will create a significantly reduction in noise and vibration.

Spring mounts are used to isolate the vibration caused by electrical, floor mounted equipment and rotating, floor mounted equipment. Within seismic zones, spring mounts are used to isolate and restrain equipment if there is an earthquake.
Learn more about vibration isolation and seismic restraint for floor mounted equipment.
Neoprene synthetic rubber is a very strong and versatile material with qualities that make it ideal for equipment vibration isolation. Neoprene mounts & pads are used for equipment that produces high frequency vibration and for impact machines such as punch presses.
Our neoprene mounts and pads are used in a number of situations.
Neoprene pads are the low cost for minor vibration problems. Neoprene mounts are used when the vibrations isolation requirements are greater.
Learn more about common applications and neoprene mounts and pad specifications.
Suspended systems can transfer vibration into a building structure. To prevent this vibration transfer, isolation hangers are installed.
Isolation hangers are used for both ceiling suspended equipment and suspended systems such as piping and ductwork.
Mason manufacturers a range of isolation hangers designed for specific applications including a seismic sway brace for seismic zones.
Learn about the common applications and the various hanger types.
Mounts and pads provide isolation for floor mounted equipment. However, to firmly hold the equipment in place, bases are needed.
Bases, rails & curbs are used underfloor mounted equipment to increase vibration isolation efficiency and to stiffen equipment support points.
Specially designed for the transportation industry and other moving environments such as elevators, these stainless steel mesh vibration mounts are ideal. This includes airborne, marine, mobile and general service environments.
These speciality mounts work very well for steam or high temperature applications.
