Vibration isolation in maritime environments
Getzner solutions have been successfully used for vibration isolation on board marine vessels for many years now. Vibration on ships and offshore platforms presents a problem in that it can cause damage to the infrastructure, to mechanical systems and to sensitive items of equipment. Structure-borne noise and secondary airborne noise also have an impact on the well-being of those on board, reduce levels of comfort and make it impossible to work productively.
Getzner has developed a group of materials in the Sylomer® Marine FR series specifically for use on ships and offshore platforms. They have been certified as fire-retardant under the IMO fire standards and SOLAS guidelines. The company also has the "wheelmark" certification required for products used on board marine vessels.
