ABOUT Heian Shindo Kogyo:

The HEIAN company was established 1952 in Osaka, Japan. At the time of its establishment, it was the first company to mass produce aluminium sashes in Japan. The company thereafter turned its attention to the increase of apartment housing in urban areas of Japan, accompany the development of the country. It was the first company in Japan to develop the HEIAN Rod, which increases storages space without the use of screws or nails. For sixty years, we have adapted with the times through ingenuity and made possible a better life for consumers.

What is a HEIAN Rod?

The HEIAN Rod, which makes a stylish solution for storage, is very easy to set up. Setting up storage spaces until now have meant a certain amount of labour, in the forms of measuring, assembling, and such. However, with the HEIAN Rod, there is no need for measuring or assembling. The HEIAN original crimping mechanism enables a perfect set-up, allowing you to freely create storage space in any type of setting without the use of tools. In addition, since removal is also simple, it is possible to try out various layouts for storage solutions. The HEIAN Rod’s simple design will choreograph your life with style.
