Combisafe on the cutting edge of protection at refurbishment of Munich's HVB Tower
At the refurbishment of the 27-storey HVB Tower in Munich – headquarters for financial institution HypoVereinsbank – the installation of 1.2km of Framed Rail Barriers from COMBISAFE has helped to combine unrivalled levels of edge protection with outstanding access during the complete renovation of the building’s façade.
Dobler Metallbau combined the use of rented Framed Rail Barriers with a collection of owned Steel Mesh Barriers – specially designed and manufactured with extra openings to give workers safe access to the edge of a building without the need for a harness. Both the rented Framed Rail Barriers and special Steel Mesh provided the perfect combination of debris containment, impact-absorbing capacity and prevention of site damage.
The combination of high quality, market proven edge protection and straightforward access to the slab edge for those working at height will help to deliver a safe working environment throughout the sustainable regeneration of the landmark project.
