Stunning architecture meets stunning safety

Another project from the legendary architect, Santiago Calatrava, the Agora (6,000 seat open air auditorium) is set within the City of Arts & Science complex. Problem: Traditional fall protection systems unable to cope with Irregular shaped construction. Restrictive access. Fall protection system must be unobtrusive and blend in with appearance of building. Solution: Rail system was specified at design stage ensuring a highly cost effective solution. Rail system was supplied in a white powder coated finish to complement the building. Provided a safety solution during the building phase.

UniRail: Maintaining a masterpiece

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.
