Elbe Philharmonic Hall - Hamburg, Germany

Elbe Philharmonic Hall – TAURUS rail system, specially ­designed according to architectural consensus.

Elbe Philharmonic Hall – TAURUS rail system, specially ­designed according to architectural consensus. 

The 1,096 components of the TAURUS rail system from ­INNOTECH guarantee the safety of everybody given the in­creasing amount of cleaning and maintainance needed on the roof of the Elbe Philharmonic Hall – in March 2015 the glass ­facade was finished.

The technical challenge for the research & development project: The complex, undulating, freeform lines of the architect ­demanded a system design of the highest order, complying with most stringent safety requirements at all times. Therefore special curved rails were designed, like a second skin could nestle tightly to the existing roof form.

From this came a special rail co­nnection, adopted especially for this complex system, which can absorb stronger heat strain on the aluminium parts. Therefore the system is better equipped to deal with adverse conditions as it is resistent to solar irradiation.


Special solution for the famous Hamburg concert hall

A specially developed glider slides along the system and provides a totally hamper-proof path of movement for those using the rail system, even including the sloping surfaces. Those people working long-winded work have free movement along the whole roof sections.

On May 29th 2015 the installation was completed – 490 m of rail plus 400 shored anchor points. This was an individual, high-tech, special-purpose solution for full fall protection and to date one of the biggest global projects ­undertaken by INNOTECH.
