That’s how architectural highlights are made: The pedestrian and cyclist bridge in front of the Career School Centre (Berufsschulzentrum) in Göppingen, Germany, shines entirely in red. Only the BESISTA rod system 540 was used for the bridge.

The guided boardwalk extends over a length of 37.5 meters and stands as a landmark by itself. The hot-dip galvanizing includes galvanized rod threads and serves as protection against the weather. This outstanding feature is unique to BESISTA tension rod systems.
