Welcome to Big Shaker Enterprises LLC ®
We design, manufacture and operate the WORLD’S LARGEST mobile earthquake simulators for education, training and consumer outreach.
We have trained more than 30,000 people on how to be prepared for earthquakes in the states of California, Washington and Utah.
Loss or damage to household possessions and personal injuries in an earthquake are predictable and preventable. The BIG SHAKERS are specifically designed to show you how to prevent damage and injuries from happening.
Our simulators recreate the intense shaking of earthquakes up to a magnitude 8.0 and when you’re inside them you will experience what an earthquake can feel like and what will happen to unsecured household possessions.
Conditions similar to those experienced in a home or office during an earthquake are aimed at behavior modification. If you don’t already take earthquake preparedness seriously you will after being in the Big Shaker. Secured items stay in place, while unsecured items come crashing down as a stark reminder of what can happen. The simulations are the most realistic experiences you will get other than the forces of Mother Nature herself (see Press Releases/News Clips and Videos pages).
We also custom build mobile earthquake simulators for first responder agencies such as Fire Departments, Government Agencies and foreign governments. We have delivered multiple units, including to the Los Angeles Fire Department, for educating schoolchildren on earthquake preparedness.
The interior resembles a classroom complete with desks, TV monitor and teddy bear shelves. The trailer has a rear pull-down ramp for easy handicap access for wheelchairs/the disabled. It is fully automated and programmable with up to four different quake scenarios stored in memory.
Our simulators are designed and manufactured in the USA.
