NTUA seismicity experiment for prefabricated houses KOFINAS 2022
Seismicity test prefabricated KOFINAS
The experiment took place on February 2, 2022
A three-storey essay on a physical scale, made by the company KOFINAS Prefabricated Houses was tested experimentally using a seismic simulator of the National Technical University of Athens.
The purpose of the tests was to test the response of the structural system to seismic action.
The success was a result of the technical advantages:
- Screw, which is robotically installed in all construction parts of the house
- Metal connecting plates, with which we tie the construction
- Overdimensioning, bearing organism through mechanical study
- Reinforcement at the points of stress through a special static program

Earthquake does not kill.
NTUA seismicity experiment for the prefabricated houses KOFINAS 2022
The prefabricated houses of Kofinas are famous for their maximum seismicity. The precise design and careful construction with the appropriate building materials, utilizing the know-how and experience of years, gives the homes of our company the guaranteed result of complete anti-seismic shielding and static adequacy.
The company KOFINAS, wanting to prove the great anti-seismic resistance of its prefabricated houses, tried to certify in practice this advantage of its constructions by conducting a scientific experiment in a three-storey building of natural scale.
In February 2022, in collaboration with the National Technical University of Athens, the houses of KOFINA Prefabricated Houses were tested again on a physical scale using a seismic simulator.
Because buildings are the ones that can kill and not earthquakes, we invest in their quality for your own safety.
Kofinas company has been a protagonist since 1977 in the research and production of masonry. Our secret is continuous research and development.
We performed another experiment on February 2, 2022 in a three-storey building.
Which was done for the first time in Greece and one of the largest in Europe.
Continuous development and progress are the biggest goals of the company KOFINAS Prefabricated Houses. For this reason, reassurance has never been a feature of our work. We want to offer excellent quality and we always try to achieve the best and technologically advanced results.
Thus, on February 2, 2022, another scientific anti-seismic experiment was conducted to verify and scientifically approve the maximum staticity of the prefabricated KOFINAS houses in a three-storey life-size building.
Following the static experiment conducted in November 2009, during which a single-storey specimen house of the company entering the seismic simulator withstood up to 1.5 g acceleration while remaining intact, the company KOFINAS wanted to seal this result and go a step further.
Thus, in 2022, in a three-story life-size test, he performed a static experiment on the seismic simulator at the NTUA, charging it with seismic stresses of 1G, which is equivalent to 9+ on the Richter scale, without showing any damage.
Guarantee of seismicity KOFINAS
In the company KOFINAS prefabricated houses we serve in every way the quality of our constructions. For this reason, at every opportunity we test and certify the data and procedures we follow during the construction and erection of our prefabricated buildings, with the aim of objective guarantee. The scientific certifications that we have secured through experiments are the driving force for our company to continue tirelessly to provide the highest quality, modern and best materials and results in every prefabricated house KOFINAS.
