Quake Test

   

Generally, quake resistant bookshelf is adopted as anti quake measures. It resists the quake (energy) by the reinforced shelving structure. 

As a result of test, quake resistant bookshelf was not collapsed. However, beam was bent, floor fixation is removed, and books fallen. 
Seismic Isolation Bookshelf does not counter the quake, but absorbs a quake energy. 
As a result of test, it reduced collapse of bookshelf and fall of books.
