Pedestrian Bridge Station Agen

HAVER and BOECKER as manufactured wire mesh covering

HAVER Architectural Mesh provides safety and protection while maintaining visual transparency on the pedestrian bridge at the train station in Agen, France.

As part of the station's barrier-free redesign, AREP architects designed a new metal bridge connecting the platforms of tracks 1 and 2. The 7 m high and 20 m long pedestrian bridge has 2 staircases and 2 elevators, enabling every traveler to cross the two tracks safely.
Fall protection: HAVER Architectural Mesh meets requirements for protection and safety
The sides of the bridge as well as the stairways are clad with architectural wire mesh EGLA-DUO 4222  from Haver & Boecker. This mesh type appears – due to the combination of flat wires and plain form of the round wires – as a uniform metal veil, which reflects light homogenously. With an open area of 46%, the balustrade infill panels made of stainless steel mesh EGLA-DUO 4222 provide visual protection for travelers from the outside. From the inside, however, the semi-transparent stainless steel mesh ensures an almost unobstructed view.

Perfectly tailored solution
For the entire cladding of the bridge Haver & Boecker supplied 73 ready-to-install mesh frames made of stainless steel mesh EGLA-DUO 4222. Rectangular, trapezoidal and mesh frames in special form with lengths of up to 2.4 m and widths of up to 1.3 m were manufactured for a precise fit. 
Architectural wire mesh from Haver & Boecker benefits not only in terms of reliable safety and robust durability, but also in terms of sustainability. At the end of the bridge's lifetime, the stainless steel mesh can be recycled sustainably.
