Quake Crate

Quake Crate

Stuart Haselden has developed and patented a new concept that addresses the vertical lift of earthquakes in data centres. Several earthquake resistent models have a bearing system to allow for horizontal movement. Our system is the only one on the market that allows for vertical movement. We are working with other NZ earthquake engineers and plan to license work to a major supplier and user of containerised data centres.


To develop a commercially viable and informed research project and outputs.
