COMBISAFE Counterweight strikes right balance at €85 million Schongau power plant

The versatile Counterweight System from COMBISAFE is providing exceptional levels of edge protection throughout the installation of a roof and facade at the new €85 million power plant for UPM, a leading pulp, paper and timber manufacturer.

Requiring a roof safety system with no clamps or roof penetrations to the slab and roof membrane, main contractor Borgel Elementbau used the COMBISAFE Counterweight System and 185 linear metres of toeboards to ensure work could be completed safely and efficiently using only two points of connection to the roof.

Quick and easy to install, the Counterweight System takes temporary edge protection to new levels of speed and efficiency. Requiring just a hammer for rapid assembly, it also uses a specially designed trolley for a more ergonomic installation which removes the need for heavy lifting.

Set for completion in 2014, the project further enhances COMBISAFE’s reputation for delivering innovative edge protection and safety solutions at challenging projects.
