Europa Bridge "Europabrücke" - Tyrol, Austria
The spectacular "Europabrücke" (Europe Bridge) rises 190 meters above the Valley. One of the engineering wonders, the Bridge still is the highest in all of Europe.
In 2011 the decision was made to install a fall protection system on one of the highest girder bridges in Europe. Opened for traffic in 1963, the Europa Bridge near Innsbruck, the centrepiece of the Austrian Brenner A 13 motorway, has impressive dimensions - height of 190 m and a length of 820 m.
Safety for inspections by INNOTECH rope systems
10 INNOTECH cable systems were installed in 7 days by a 3-person industrial climbing team headed by Andreas Geisler of offground solutions. The lifeline system installed permitted access to systems at lower levels, e.g. in order to undertake inspections on the pillars.
Founded in 2001, INNOTECH Arbeitsschutz is a family-owned company with headquarters in Kirchham and branch offices in Germany and Switzerland. With a dedicated research and development team, INNOTECH soon set international standards in the area of occupational safety. Ever since, it has driven forward the further development of innovative products. Today INNOTECH is one of the largest manufacturers in Europe which has specialised exclusively in the production of safety systems, with 88% from its own manufacture, in order to guarantee maximum quality.
According to various statistics, several hundred people have an accident on roofs every year. Accidents that could have been prevented with appropriate safety equipment and the diligent installation of high-quality fall protection systems.
