FlexHead Industries recently reported that its product helped minimize the damage in a Kohl’s department store after a 6.5 earthquake hit the Bayshore Mall in Eureka, Calif., earlier this year.
According to a report in the
Eureka Times Standard, the Kohl’s
store was the first to reopen in the mall after the disaster. Other stores in
the mall had to shut down for days to repair the damage in the sprinkler
system. FlexHead reported its product allowed the sprinkler head to move during
the quake without causing damage to the sprinkler system. Unfortunately, the
shaking breached hard-pipe sprinkler drops protecting the rest of the mall,
causing damage estimated at $6 million.
