Earthquake Chair
Earthquake Chair

Many earthquakes occur in recent years all over the world, causing significant casualties and property losses. Children
and students who are relatively weak are inclined to be injured. The Earthquake Chair is a safe seat designed especially
for the students living in frequent earthquake area. When the earthquake comes, students can turn the seat forward to
135 degree, forming a protecting nabla structure. The nabla structure formed by the back and the seat can protect the
student hiding behind effectively. The Earthquake Chair would not only satisfy the normal teaching requirement, but also
protect young students in danger.
