Pavilion Bridge, Zaragoza

Bridge the gap safely

Exceptional structures require exceptional height safety solutions and as such, 3M Fall Protection takes pride in announcing the specification and installation of 3M Fall Protection’s UniRail system, to architects Zaha Hadid’s and Patrik Schumacher’s showcase, Expoagua 2008, Zaragoza Pavilion Bridge project.

In meeting with the challenges of providing uncompromising levels of protection, compliance and performance and taking in to account the architects desire to limit aesthetic impact to the structure, 3M Fall Protection and their specialist contractor Vertice, have delivered a solution that met all expectations. The 230m, marine grade aluminium UniRail system will be used by specialist rope access technicians for unhindered fall protection and suspended access, enabling the structure, façade and natural lights to be maintained, keeping the bridge in tip top condition for years to come.

The bridge itself is 2500 m2 and provides a pedestrian bridge across the river Ebro.
