Star Seismic was the first established domestic company in the US promoting

Buckling Restrained Braces.  We offer a variety of connections in

rectangular, square and round casings sizes.  Our unique redundant core

system gives the owner added security during a seismic event.  We offer the

largest capacities by combining fully tested members,  ganging them

together, and having our patented collar surround the members forcing them

to  behave uniformly.  Our braces have been tested in a dynamic situation

simulating the Northridge earthquake.  All we do is BRB's, call us about

your next project, anyplace in the world -- 435-940-0222.
