Safety balcony / Balcony

Safety balcony
Safety balcony

fall accident from balcony occurs very often. We thought about the problems the existing handrails mostly have and found that most of the accidents are happened when the center of gravity moves forward. To prevent the accident, we designed the bars that are broader and rotate inward. Like a slides toy. ‘Safety Balcony’ rotate only in one direction. (Backward) For this reason, even if the user's center of gravity moves forward, slips back again safely. Sliding in, it is safer than falling out.When it detects the pressure, latches are pushed into bars and the slides are rolled softly pushing the object back safely.* http://youtu.be/jw0ZYrYvZfw
