Minster Constance with protecting cupolas

2 August 2016

The tower of the historical Minster at the Lake of Constance offers a spectacular view over the lake, the alps and the landscape around the city of Constance. Climbing the tower therefore is a tourist attraction. Unfortunately, this location was also popular for suicides.

To prevent future accidents a solution with net enclosures was chosen. The form refers to the historic cupolas which crowned the platforms 200 years ago. Our mesh ROMBO G65/2 was installed at cupola shaped frames. The preinstalled cupolas were lifted with a crane on the platforms. This solution combines  a good view with a high level of safety.
