Sliding panels and earthquakes

From: Joachim Huber <joachim.huber<-a>

One of our clients wonders about the behavior of sliding panels
(rolling racks, pull out panels) in museum storages in case of an
earthquake.  Has somebody experience in installing sliding panels in
a potentially seismic zone?  Are there any precautions taken in
seismic zones (e.g. stronger construction of the panels, special
fixing to floor or ceiling, special clamps, blocking systems etc.)?
