Gate Building Renovation, Neuschwanstein Castle, Germany

Neuschwanstein Castle is one of Germany's most famous sights. Every year around 1.5 million tourists from all over the world visit the cultural monument near Füssen.
The eastern gateway building at Neuschwanstein Castle is currently completely scaffolded with PERI UP Flex whereby a temporary weather protection roof spans the access to the castle.
PERI innovation: heated roof tarpaulins minimize snow loads on the temporary scaffold roofing.
Effective snow management: heating wires integrated in the Keder sheeting prevent large accumulation of snow and thus unfavourable loads.
PERI UP Flex work and safety scaffolding adapts flexibly using its 25-cm system grid to suit the local site conditions at Neuschwanstein Castle.
The exclusive use of system scaffolding components with PERI UP Flex accelerated assembly operations and, at the same time, increased safety levels during scaffold use.
The exceptional location and the year long influx of visitors meant that all assembly steps were carried out manually without any telescopic handler and crane support.
The idyllic location of Neuschwanstein surrounded by lakes and mountains is unique worldwide.

Ügyfél előnyök

  • Accelerated assembly work and increased levels of safety during scaffolding utilization due to the almost exclusive use of system scaffolding components.
  • No time-consuming tube and coupler operations for assembling the scaffolding and associated dangerous tripping hazards during subsequent scaffold use.
  • Significant savings in material utilization and installation effort through the optimization of bay widths and spans with the weather protection roof – resulting in simple, safe and effective snow management by means of heatable Keder sheeting.

With the help of the PERI innovation in the form of the heatable Keder-sheeted roof, we could reduce the snow load and, in the process, cost-effectively realize the bridging and load transfer constructions – a result of the excellent collaboration with the PERI engineers who supported us from the planning stage through to implementation on the construction site. In spite of the difficult geometry of the building, we didn´t need any additional filler areas or overlaps due to the form-fitting and non-positive connection of PERI UP Flex. The scaffolding also visually leaves an impressive overall impression and reproduces the silhouette of the gateway building in an enlarged form. This has allowed us to meet the client´s requirements – which has been so successful that up to 8,000 visitors stand and marvel at the scaffolding every day.
