Taylor Devices, Inc., incorporated in 1955, is a leading manufacturer of shock absorbers, seismic dampers, wind dampers, shock isolation systems, seismic
isolators, vibration dampers, powerplant snubbers, and other types of hydro-mechanical energy management products. The company's products form the cutting
edge of technology in the marketplace, and are backed by 45+ years of successful experience in the shock and vibration control field. Taylor Devices'
products are used extensively by both commercial and aerospace markets.
In 1991, Taylor Devices introduced its fluid viscous dampers to the structural engineering community. These products were previously developed by the
company for the U.S. Government during the Cold War period to protect ballistic missiles and other large military platforms against nuclear attack. In
1990, Taylor Devices received permission from the government to commercialize this technology. Actual use in commercial structures began in 1992, after
extensive testing at MCEER.
More than 140 major building and bridge structures worldwide are using
Taylor Devices' seismic dampers. Today, thousands of Taylor fluid viscous
dampers are in service worldwide, protecting engineered structures against
the damaging effects of earthquakes and wind storms.
