Understanding the requirements for IBC seismic-compliant power systems

It is important for standby power systems to function after a catastrophic event, such as a hurricane, tornado, earthquake, or even a terrorist attack. In particular, critical-needs facilities—such as hospitals, police and fire stations, emergency shelters, power plants, airports, government facilities, and communications and operations centers—require standby power systems that have been specifically engineered to withstand physical shocks and multi-axis accelerations typical of these disruptive occurrences.
