Correct attachment of L-shaped bracket and belt / chain to earthquake resistance of furniture

The type with screws is stronger than the adhesive type

In the earthquake resistance of furniture, it is necessary to satisfy two things, namely not falling down and not falling. Besides that it is convenient for L brackets. By fixing the furniture and the house firmly in the L shape, damage to the earthquake can be drastically reduced. There are two types of instruments of the type that fixes such furniture roughly. It is adhesive type and screw type. Adhesive type is characterized by easy attachment, but there is a possibility that it will be easy to attach. On the other hand, the screw type has the feature that it can not come off unless it is a very strong impact. If you want to prevent falls of furniture in particular, we recommend that you install with screws. It can give a considerable durability to furniture.

Fixing to the wall finds and installs the foundation pillar on the back of the wall

There are points also when fixing to the wall. The wall of a typical house consists of several layers. Therefore, if you fix the furniture to the upper layer there is a risk of getting out of it with a little impact. Conversely, if you can firmly fix it on the wall of the wall, the possibility that the furniture will fall over will be reduced unless the wall collapses. So when fixing L-shaped metal fittings etc. on the wall, let’s find and attach the underlying pillar on the back. Please note that depending on the structure of the wall the nature of the substrate may be different. However, even if the making of the wall is slightly different, the importance of installing it in the back part will not change. There are cases where it can not be fixed well if the screw is too short.

Fasten to furniture, attach to furniture core

Fixation on the furniture side is also important. Furniture can not be said unconditionally because the shape is completely different depending on the type, but here also there is a part of the core and a part of the surface. If it is fixed at the surface part, the surface turns up or breaks when receiving a shock, and many cases will not prevent falling of furniture. So it is important to attach it to the core material of furniture. If it is said that it is in a shape that can not be attached with the core part, we recommend using a belt or the like. It is not preferable to fix convenience by fixing furniture, so it is very important to choose a fixing method that was appropriate for each furniture. It is also important to decide the location clearly as it becomes hard to move as it is fixed.

In the place where you want to fix, there is no pillar of the foundation, the core material of the furniture does not hit

Add horns to walls and furniture. (The wall uses the damned lice)

Furniture is not to be installed based on fixing, so there is no guarantee that there are foundation pillars and furniture core material in the place you want to put. If you forcibly install furniture in places where they are forced, you may lose great convenience. So there is a way to add horns to walls and furniture. In other words, it is to prepare points for fixing. By using this method, it is less affected by the installation location and you can give the seismic performance. Especially it is recommended because it is easy to add square material on the wall. There is also a way to use the damaged lice on the wall. It is very convenient because it does not only play a decorative role but also can be utilized in earthquake resistance.

Belts and chains are installed at an angle of about 30 degrees with furniture

Depending on the furniture you want to fix, you may also use a belt or chain to increase the earthquake resistance performance. The angle of the belt and the chain is important, and if the angle is too fast it will be cramped. On the other hand, if the angle is too loose, the effect of fixing will be diminished, so it will be difficult for you to go too fast or too fast. We recommend installing it at an angle of about 30 degrees if possible. As long as it is around 30 degrees, it is reasonably fixed so that you can ensure seismic performance and a certain level of convenience. However, this angle changes slightly depending on the height of the furniture to be fixed. Basically, it is considered that the tall furniture is installed at a slightly tight angle, the effect of preventing falls will be greater in the event of the earthquake.
