Safety Hammer

iF concept design award 2014

iF concept design award 2014

This is a hammer that is safe to use for emergency evacuations and would be mainly found in public transport vehicles in an emergency so that people can break windows in order to get out in a hurry. This product is easy to operate, easy to use, can save the time needed for an escape and reduces the chance of injury to users and other passengers.

"It is a simple and useful design. Usually passengers may not understand how to use safe hammers in emergency situations, especially how to find a proper point to break the window. This design solves the problem."
Jury Statement

When I found out that I had won the award in the iF competition, I was very excited and also extremely surprised. I would like to take advantage of this opportunity to express my greatest thanks to my teachers, Cui Xiaofei and Cui Junjie. I will keep working hard on my studies and on the future and try my best to achieve even greater success.
