Anti-seismic school buildings

School and university earthquake-proof buildings

Prefabricated modular school project whose load-bearing structures, both vertical and horizontal, are anti-seismic and constrained to the basement according to anti-seismic patent.

The modules of the anti-seismic school buildings are produced in the factory, transported on normal articulated lorries and assembled on site.

In schools of all kinds, students and teachers are present in large numbers during school activities.

During and after strong earthquakes, panicked students flee from the current school buildings, causing confusion and further damage that add up to those directly caused by the earthquake.

It is necessary that school buildings are absolutely resistant to earthquakes and remain unscathed and usable, and they are to such an extent that students and teachers, aware of their situation, remain in schools and do not pour into streets where building collapses can occur.

Earthquake-resistant schools must be places where, while earthquakes shake the ground, school activity continues normally, in complete safety for students, teachers and all the people who work there.

The current anti-seismic buildings resist earthquake shocks, if they are not very violent, but they oscillate even more than the ground and in these conditions school activities are impossible, due to the dynamics that objects, equipment and people in the classrooms undergo . In addition, the other cause of danger is manifested, which is panic.

The anti-seismic school building, for which we have filed a patent, resists seismic shocks of high magnitude and in it all activities, including school ones, can continue normally during seismic shocks.

Safety and protection, felt by everyone, avoid panic and confusion.

A seismic emergency plan may provide that, following a catastrophic earthquake, the anti-seismic school building, previously prepared for a rapid transformation of use, is immediately used as a place of gathering, refuge and assistance for the population affected by the earthquake.

The school or university building may also include an operations room for the management of earthquake emergencies.

The stairs, both internal and external, whose structure is integrated into the structure of the building, remain accessible during the earthquake.

The elevators, the structure of which is integrated into the structure of the building, remain functional during earthquakes. If the normal supply of electricity is suspended due to the earthquake, an uninterruptible power supply can supply electricity until an emergency electric generator comes into operation.
