The anti-seismic glass walls INWALL would have resisted also the shock of Amatrice in 2016 and even that of L’Aquila in 2009. Yes, the experimental tests conducted on the walls of this collection at the laboratory of the Departments of Structures for Engineering and Architecture of the faculty “Federico II” have established that, in case of high intensity seismic events, the sheets of structural glass and the aluminum profiles of INWALL do not suffer material damage and are therefore ideal for the safety of persons.
Response after the tests: these anti-seismic glass walls withstand shocks up to 12m / sec2, twice as much as the earthquake shock recorded in Amatrice (6m / sec2).
VetroIN has invested resources and time to find a solution to the growing security demand of buildings and especially of persons. In particular, for an unpredictable event such as an earthquake, it is necessary to start from the origin and act directly on the structure. That’s how the anti-seismic glass walls INWALL, with its most original elements under patent, were created.
After 38 tests on a vibrating table, we can say that our INWALL glass wall is appropriate and perfect to guarantee the safety of buildings and persons in case of an earthquake.
