On twitter reported a user that his massive manga collection collapsed and nearly destroyed his entire house. The pictures of the devastation can be found at the end of the article.
Shelf breaks through the floor
Many manga require a lot of storage space. And there the user @changegetter1 has a lot of manga, of course, there is also a lot of mass. Exactly that was his undoing now, since one of his manga shelves broke through the wooden floor and left a real swath of devastation, as some other shelves were swept away.
It took him a few hours to clean up the mess, but luckily by the end of the day the damage was limited with just 30 books torn.
The Twitter community gave him some comfort and valuable tips for the future:
- “I went through the same mess. Mine was caused by an earthquake, but I didn’t build the bookcase strong enough, so in a way I’m partly responsible.”
- “That looks like a lot of clean-up work.”
- »Shelves that stand on feet instead of a surface exert a lot of pressure. That’s why I always buy 2 cm thick boards at the hardware store to put them underneath and distribute the weight.«
- “Wow! Our house has been through five or six strong 6-7 earthquakes and our floor even survived the Tohoku earthquake.«
- »Apartments are built with a calculation of 180 kg/m². However, if the load is concentrated on four legs, as is the case with steel shelving, then the floor must be reinforced.«
