In 2009 PNEOIL group SRL founded Sismalab laboratory to try anti-seismic devices.
In the same year it carried out the “C.A.S.E.” plan project which was realized by the Civil Protection. With the help of a mobile laboratory SISMALAB tested all the anti-seismic devices in situ. For the first time in the anti-seismic field tests were carried out directly on the buildings. The isolators were stressed simulating the strength of a real earthquake. It was therefore possible to verify both the behaviour of the device and the resistance of the whole building.
Sismalab laboratory is above all Research & Development.
Ferdinand IV of Bourbon was the first to issue the legislation for anti-seismic buildings, nevertheless, several tests are necessary to be sure of putting on the market a cutting-edge product which reflects all the standards.
