When renowned Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava designed the Palau De Les Arts Reina Sofia, the practicalities of cleaning the 6,000 square metres of glass and changing the light bulbs in the uppermost part of the building (75 metres) posed a challenge. Problem: Fall protection system was not specified at the design stage. Irregular shaped construction with high ceilings and curved walls made maintenance with scaffolding virtually impossible. Solution: Rail system installed inside the building, which has minimal visual impact. Provides suspended rope access, positive restraint and fall arrest for multiple users.
