Seismic Certification Allows for Wider Range of Applications, Greater Flexibility

6/1/2013

Generac industrial-configured products are part of an elite offering of the most durable, powerful, emergency and standby generators available, meeting or exceeding the latest and most stringent standards for seismic certification and suited for the strictest building requirements as set by the International Code Council.

Recently issued IBC code standards now classify critical equipment such as generators as a component of the building’s structure that must remain operational following an event where the building sustains a seismic force.

Generac products are fully certified to meet all published editions of IBC 2009 and 2012 seismic certification from the California Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD) SDS level 2.0 (for diesel-fueled products) and 2.5 (for spark-ignited products.)

Certification on these products also includes rooftop applications, allowing a far greater degree of flexibility in installation and site placement than ever before, reaffirming Generac’s status as a premier manufacturer of top-quality, industrial-configured power products.
