Are You Protected In An Earthquake?

Brace yourself are specialist installers of non-structural seismic restraints in residential dwellings. This means we keep bookshelves, TVs, tallboys, microwaves, and anything else that risks toppling and causing injury, safely in place in the event of an earthquake.

Have you assessed your homes topple risks? 

It’s the things we take for granted that are most likely to cause harm in a shake. Commonplace appliances can turn deadly if not securely braced or mounted including televisions, fridges and chests of drawers.

Bracing your household furniture and appliances has never been easier but requires technical ability and time, both of which a busy family often lacks or overlooks.

Brace Yourself offer an in home assessment solution based approach to ensure you have done all that you can to protect the people closest to you from fall risks.

We take care of the little things that matter most

- Simon Cuff

As a parent myself I realised just how much could and probably would go wrong at home in an earthquake.

I started looking for solutions to protect my family and discovered there really wasn’t much out there to help other parents and decided to set up Brace Yourself.

One of the immediate challenges I came up against was the time involved in shopping around for the various products we needed. Running a business and a family really requires 25 hours in the day and it’s easy to put off the little jobs in place of the seemingly big jobs we all face taking care of children.

With that in mind and hearing the same barriers from other parents, I went looking for a range of in home safety products I could offer and install for the busy parent.

It quickly became apparent, like at home the workplace was also a standout risk area that needed help, so I set about creating solutions to secure the office environment as well.

Let me help you minimize any potential risk factors in home or at work to be sure that you’re looking after the people closest to you day to day.
