Description of project
The delivery and installation of a modularly constructed construction in 11 sections with a total length of approx. 34.10 m on a bus platform. The construction consists of columns with props and additionally is fully constructed with standard components in the standard colour RAL 9005 (black) and RAL 7022 (grey white). The entire construction is positioned on a foundation of standard concrete bases. The headroom below the gutter is 2.25 m and the roof edge height is 2.72 m.
The roof glazing is constructed with 10 mm thick clear safety glass. The seams between the glass panels are fitted with rubber profiles. The wall glazing is positioned between the columns. In total, 4 windbreaks are positioned with the dimensions of 2.85 x 2.10 m. The windbreaks are constructed with two steel rails with a cylindrical profile between the columns and panels of clear safety glass, 10 mm thick. The panels are installed in light alloy glass clamps.
A light strip with Fluorescent lighting fittings is integrated in the roof edges. The lighting is switched in line with the public street lighting. The electrical power is fed upwards through one of the supporting columns which is fitted with an inspection hatch for the electrical system.
The rainwater is led off via the gutter towards the columns, which is connected to a drainage system located below ground level. Leaf catchers have been integrated in the gutters in order to prevent obstructions.
Materials and preservation
The steel columns and pulling rods have been preserved in a high quality manner by means of delta galvanising and the application of a two coat graffiti-resistant powder coating. The gutters are constructed with a central gutter made of 3 mm Sendzimir galvanised sheet steel and fitted with a graffiti-resistant powder coating. The exterior is made with 1.5 mm thick sheet steel, treated with cataphoresis primer and a graffiti-resistant powder coating. The aluminium components are treated with a single layer of graffiti-resistant powder coating.
The shelter can be delivered as standard as a single-sided or double-sided version. There are possibilities for customer-specific variants of the described basic construction.
