What is a Heian Shindo tension rod?

Create shelves, poles, and storage space wherever you need it, at any height, with the power of tension rods.

Heian Tension Rods have been a hit since their creation in 1975—allowing you to utilize dead space for storage and maximize small living spaces without damaging the walls. Since then, we have developed other convenient storage items based on tension rod technology. Now, they are must-have items in many Japanese households.

Create usable storage space, divide a room, or add a splash of color. They're easily installed and easily removed. These products will adapt to your individual lifestyle.

Why are Heian Shindo's Jack Screw Tension Rods Strong Enough to Be Used for Storage?

Jack screw mechanism specialized for storage

Spring-loaded tension rods are commonly used for shower curtains, which use the force of the spring to prop against the wall. While spring-loaded tension rods are easy to install and remove, they often have a low load-bearing capacity.

Heian Shindo's storage rods, on the other hand, have a jack screw mechanism. The ends firmly grip onto the wall when you turn the grip. In addition, the thicker pipes prevent deflection even when heavy objects are hung on them. These are designed specifically for storage. Both rod and shelf types are available for a wide range of storage applications.

The Heavier the Load, the Stronger the Grip

Strong Grip with Hinge Effect

The more load is applied to the tension rod, the stronger the force with which the tension rod presses against the wall. This is why Heian Shindo's tension rods are strong enough to hold heavier loads.

Strong Spring Prevents Slipping

The reinforced load-bearing models (NGP/OGP/HGP) have a strong spring built in that prevents the bar from shifting and falling.

Unique High-Tension Cam Mechanism Built In

The HGP series, the most powerful model among the load-bearing reinforced models of tension rods, uses Heian Shindo's original high tension cam mechanism instead of a hinge. The more weight that is applied to the tension rod, the stronger the grip between the cap and the wall becomes.

How to Install

Since the installation method differs for each product, please refer to the instruction manual on each product page for proper installation.
