Touch Protection Systems

There is always a potential risk of electric shock from overhead lines of transportation systems. These can be potentially fatal. Therefore, at appropriate points where there is a risk of contact, such as road or pedestrian bridges, there is a legal requirement to provide suitable protection.

Bongard & Lind helps you to safeguard against these sources of danger and provides you with custom touch protection systems that comply with all legal requirements – and ensure the necessary safety!

Protection against electric shock caused by contact with overhead lines according to RIZ Elt 2

According to RIZ Elt 2, suitable protection against contact is required wherever road or pedestrian bridges cross overhead lines. In order to ensure the necessary protection against electric shock from the active parts of the overhead lines, a protective system must be installed at these points.

So for your project, it is important that you check the need for such protection measures in advance – and act accordingly. This is usually the case in connection with railways, guided public transport systems such as trams, elevated and underground trains, and mountain railways. To meet these requirements, we offer touch protection systems that comply with DIN EN 50122-1:2011-09.

Versatile touch protection systems for railway crossings and bridges

Our system consists of an aluminium construction in different RAL colours. This is equipped with a railing or continuous handrails. The glass infills are made of transparent acrylic glass according to ZTV-LWS 06.

In exposed areas, internal strengthening threads are installed in the acrylic glass. In case of damage, these avoid falling fragments, which could endanger the overhead lines and the system. At the same time, the embedded polyamide threads offer a bird strike protection effect.
