Platform roof type HSM System®

The HSM System® is a newly developed modular construction system with a special assembly method for railway platform roofing. It provides a solution between the weather protected building and a parallel running roof at the edge of a railway platform.


  • This is an innovative railway platform roofing system, which can be prefabricated independent of respective projects.
    The parts are produced and stored in the factory irrespective of the projects.
  • The HSM System® is available in 2 roof widths: 
    • 5.00 m for platform widths from 5.65 m to 8.60 m (type A, download roof type views)
    • 4.00 m for platform width from 4.65 m to 7.60 m (type B, download roof type views)
  • Roof system length: The individual length is 18 m, but can be added on to endlessly (as an overall roof or with distances).
  • Due to the fact that they are not as high as previously constructed platform roof systems, they provide more weather protection.
  • Using an innovative assembly concept from only one trackside, means that only one trackside needs to be closed down and have the overhead contact lines switched off.
  • Legally protected registered design


The assembly of the HSM System® roofing can be performed easily and quickly. The advantages which this platform provides for constructores are quite obvious:

  • short planning and approval periods, no more project related planning (platform edge)
  • use of commercially available profiles/materials
  • top-quality corrosion protection due to galvanising
  • short delivery periods due to prefabrication (“shelf-stored products”)
  • short assembly times due to prefabricated building elements and innovative assembly method (push method for roof elements)
  • integrated lighting/sound systems
  • integrated fall protection system/restraint system
  • prefabricated part foundation with integrated furnishing elements / information elements (optional)
  • screw connections of supports above ground protected against de-icing salt, easy access for building approval inspections
  • in the case of prefabricated part foundations, the platform surface can be made in one sweep, subsequent openings for roof assembly are not necessary
  • economical investment and life-cycle costs

In the construction of our roofing solutions, we use modular system construction methods and the connection of functionality and design.

For DB AG, we plan and build the approved platform roofing Bodenheim, Bodenheim light, HSM and Zwiesel. Beyond this, we also offer different system roofs for ÖPNV (regional commuter trains) segment.

Note: Hering is Q1 supplier of DB AG for platform roofs and system platforms!
