Safety Island / furniture

Safety Island
Safety Island

A new type of household device that can prevent furniture, such as refrigerator and closet, from being damaged by floodwater. Simply based on the principles of buoyancy, we design a device for the large furniture at home to keep flood water away. When the floodwater comes into the house, the frame of it will go upward with a waterproof bag which has already been installed. And therefore, the frame will remain Floating. Moreover, if the water level gets higher and higher, the while device can also float with it.
