A safety inspection will be done for concrete block fences
Contact: Architectural Guidance Division - Phone: 04-7167-1145
During the earthquake that occurred in the northern part of Osaka in June, some concrete block fences collapsed. This has resulted in a request for safety inspections of concrete block fences. Property owners or managers of concrete block fences should perform safety inspections regarding the following points.
Safety check points for concrete block walls
▶Check that the wall is not too high
▶Check that the thickness of the fence is adequate
▶Check that there are buttresses
▶Check that there is a foundation
▶Check that there is reinforcing steel in the fence.
