About Gerb Group
In 1908, a young German engineer named William Gerb developed an innovative solution by installing vibration intense machines on spring elements.
In subsequent years, this founding idea of the GERB company group was continually developed further and thus numerous new fields of activities for the solution of dynamic problems were made available.
Today GERB makes an important contribution to improve labor and environmental protection, natural disaster protection and increase comfort.
The GERB Group provides full engineering services, system solutions, and installation.
The company’s global headquarters resides in Berlin, while a major sales and engineering office is located in Essen. Worldwide, the GERB Group operates 11 subsidiaries and is supported by numerous other partners.
Our systems for vibration reduction consist predominantly of spring elements and Viscodampers. For our spring elements, we have developed a variety of helical steel coil springs for different applications. Due in part to the linear behavior of our springs, our isolation elements are designed to be robust and utterly reliable.
Other technical advantages are:
Defined rigidity in vertical and horizontal directions
No difference between static and dynamic spring rigidity
The essential technical properties of Viscodampers® are:
Damping in all spatial directions
Reaction without time delay
Effective for small displacements
The properties of the individual components in GERB tuned mass dampers unite with high fatigue strength products to increase the structure attenuation for buildings, bridges, towers, and other large structures. Our tuned mass dampers are custom designed to meet your dynamic, spatial, and environmental requirements.
Our systems as a whole distinguish themselves through longevity, reliability and being maintenance-free.
