Toppling furniture hazards
You may be aware of recent tragic deaths of young children caused by toppling furniture in Australia and overseas. Easyliving support the ACCC in launching a consumer awareness campaign.
Small children have a natural tendency to climb on furniture such as freestanding bookcases, drawers, wardrobes and sideboards. A child's weight can easily cause unsecured furniture to topple, particularly if weighted incorrectly or heavy objects placed on top.
At least 14 children under 9 years old have died in Australia during 2010-2015 due to furniture toppling. These injuries and deaths are largely preventable and we all need to help prevent further incidents occurring.
As a major supplier of cabinetry in Perth, Easyliving have adopted a simple and affordable solution to prevent toppling furniture incidents by suggesting better design principles and supplying furniture anchors if required.
Easyliving through years of experience in designing and manufacturing timber furniture can ensure your home is safer for not only our children but adults alike.
