Fall protection with HAVER Architectural Mesh
In the Swiss town of Stein am Rhein a former scale factory was converted by the architects Baumgartner Partner Architekten for use as rental flats.
Architectural Mesh is suitable for the renovation, expansion or modernization of existing buildings. As a modern design element, it can be used to connect old and new building structures – as a façade cladding, interior cladding or decorative protection.
HAVER Architectural Mesh DOGLA-TRIO 1030 was used for the cladding of two wellholes. DOGLA-TRIO is a robust weave, which gets its structure from clusters of vertical wires. Due to its high inherent stability, it is suitable for the use as fall protection on façades, parapets or wellholes.
One wire mesh element made of stainless steel 1.4401, approx. 14 m long and 2.60 m wide, runs vertically in each wellhole. To avoid the risk of personal injury, the long sides of the mesh elements were framed with edge protection profiles. A special detail of this project is the fastening solution consisting of clevis bolts and pressure springs, in which the upper fastening edge runs at an angle instead of horizontally.
Haver & Boecker supplied ready-to-install mesh elements including the mounting solution.
