The solution for earthquake-proof housing and workplaces
Reinforcing and making the brick buildings in Groningen earthquake-proof is a pure necessity, but no simple task. Quakeshield developed a patented lightweight reinforcement solution that quickly, relatively cheaply and with a minimum of nuisance for the residents can reinforce brickwork preventatively and can avoid cracks in the event of small quakes.
